Tene Aneka Cage
Clinical Associate Professor, Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Cage's research interest is in working towards eliminating health disparities in neurosurgical outcomes. She specifically focuses on understanding the association between socioeconomic and demographic characteristics and patient outcomes following traumatic brain injury.
Associate Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery
BioDavid B. Camarillo is Associate Professor of Bioengineering, (by courtesy) Mechanical Engineering and Neurosurgery at Stanford University. Dr. Camarillo holds a B.S.E in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University, a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University and completed postdoctoral fellowships in Biophysics at the UCSF and Biodesign Innovation at Stanford. Dr. Camarillo worked in the surgical robotics industry at Intuitive Surgical and Hansen Medical, before launching his laboratory at Stanford in 2012. His current research focuses on precision human measurement for multiple clinical and physiological areas including the brain, heart, lungs, and reproductive system. Dr. Camarillo has been awarded the Hellman Fellowship, the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Program award, among other honors including multiple best paper awards in brain injury and robotic surgery. His research has been funded by the NIH, NSF, DoD, as well as corporations and private philanthropy. His lab’s research has been featured on NPR, the New York Times, The Washington Post, Science News, ESPN, and TED.com as well as other media outlets aimed at education of the public.

BioDr. Chandra is a board certified vascular surgeon who specializes in cutting edge approaches to aortic aneurysmal disease, peripheral vascular disease and limb salvage.
Steven D. Chang, MD
Robert C. and Jeannette Powell Neurosciences Professor and, by courtesy, of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS) and of Neurology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsClinical research includes studies in the treatment of cerebrovascular disorders, such as aneurysms and AVMs, as well as the use of radiosurgery to treat tumors and vascular malformations of the brain and spine.
Dr. Chang is C0-Director of the Cyberknife Radiosurgery Program.
Dr. Chang is also the head of the The Stanford Neuromolecular Innovation Program with the goal of developing new technologies to improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients affected by neurological conditions.
Professor of Neurosurgery and of Psychiatry and Behavioral SciencesOn Leave from 11/01/2023 To 04/30/2024
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWhat distinguishes us humans from other animals is our ability to undergo complex behavior. The synapses are the structural connection between neurons that mediates the communication between neurons, which underlies our various cognitive function. My research program aims to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie synapse function during behavior in the developing and mature brain, and how synapse function is altered during mental retardation.
Yi-Ren Chen, MD, MPH, FAANS
Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurosurgery
BioDr. Chen is a neurosurgeon with Dignity Health Foundation Sacramento, as well as an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Stanford University. After double majoring in biology and history at Stanford, he obtained his MD from Stanford and MPH from Johns Hopkins. He subsequently completed neurosurgery residency and complex spine fellowship at Stanford.

Clinical Professor (By courtesy), Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsClinical research focused on peripheral nerve and muscle disorders. Also involved with prevention of cerebrovascular disesase in the intraoperative setting. Ongoing clincial studies include treatments for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Inflammatory Demyelinating Neuropathy and HIV neuropathic pain.
Eun Young Choi, PhD
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Choi is broadly interested in mapping the brain’s connectivity and characterizing its functional dynamics using advanced neuroimaging and clinical neurophysiological methods, as well as utilizing this information to identify individual-specific neurosurgical targets for neuromodulation (e.g., deep brain stimulation). Her prior work has mapped the functional and connectional organization of the striatum using neuroimaging and neuroanatomical connectivity methods. She is currently focused on the use of thalamic deep brain stimulation to improve memory and attention in traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer’s disease.
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy major research interests include cancer epidemiology with a concentration in early detection and screening for cancer. My current research focuses on second malignancies among cancer survivors with special interests in causal inference from real-world observational data sources, dynamic risk predictive modeling, and simulation models of cancer control interventions on their effects on population trends in incidence and mortality. My research involves the application of competing-risk and high-dimensional data analysis using large population-based prospective cohorts, clinical trial data, electronic health records extracted through the data mining process, and cancer genomics data.
