    Neville H. Golden M.D.

    Marron and Mary Elizabeth Kendrick Professor of Pediatrics, Emeritus

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research has focused on the medical complications of adolescents with eating disorders. My specific area of study has been the etiology and implications of amenorrhea in adolescents with eating disorders, in particular the management of reduced bone mass and osteoporosis in anorexia nervosa.

  • Natalia Gomez-Ospina

    Natalia Gomez-Ospina

    Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Genetics) and of Pediatrics (Stem Cell Transplantation)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Gomez-Ospina is a physician scientist and medical geneticist with a strong interest in the diagnosis and management of genetic diseases.

    1) Lysosomal storage diseases:
    Her research program is on developing better therapies for a large class of neurodegenerative diseases in children known as lysosomal storage disorders. Her current focus is on developing genome editing of hematopoietic stem cells as a therapeutic approach for these diseases beginning with Mucopolysaccharidosis type 1 and Gaucher disease. She established a genetic approach where therapeutic proteins can be targeted to a single well-characterized place in the genome known as a safe harbor. This approach constitutes a flexible, “one size fits all” approach that is independent of specific genes and mutations. This strategy, in which the hematopoietic system is commandeered to express and deliver therapeutic proteins to the brain can potentially change the current approaches to treating childhood neurodegenerative diseases and pave the way for alternative therapies for adult neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease


    2) Point of care ammonia testing
    She also works in collaboration with other researchers at Stanford to develop point-of-care testing for serum ammonia levels. Such device will greatly improve the quality of life of children and families with metabolic disorders with hyperammonemia.

    3) Gene discovery
    Dr Gomez-Ospina lead a multi-institutional collaboration resulting in the discovery of a novel genetic cause of neonatal and infantile cholestatic liver disease. She collaborated in the description of two novel neurologic syndromes caused by mutations in DYRK1 and CHD4.

  • William Rowland Goodyer, MD/PhD

    William Rowland Goodyer, MD/PhD

    Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology)

    BioDr. Goodyer is a physician scientist who specializes in Pediatric Cardiology and Electrophysiology. Will graduated from McGill University (Montreal, Canada) with a BSc in Biology prior to completing his graduate studies at Stanford University in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP). He subsequently completed residency training in Pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital before returning to Stanford to complete a fellowship in Pediatric Cardiology and advanced fellowship in Pediatric Electrophysiology. He additionally performed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Sean Wu laboratory at the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute where he developed the first comprehensive single-cell gene atlas of the entire murine cardiac conduction system (CCS) as well as pioneered the generation of optical imaging agents for the real-time visualization of the CCS to help prevent accidental surgical damage during heart surgeries. Will's lab (www.goodyerlab.com) focuses on basic science advances aimed at the improved diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.

  • Jeffrey Gould

  • Anju Goyal

    Anju Goyal

    Clinical Instructor, Pediatrics - Hematology & Oncology
    Masters Student in Community Health and Prevention Research, admitted Autumn 2022

    BioDr. Anju Goyal is a pediatric hematology oncology fellow physician at Stanford University School of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago. She then served as an AmeriCorps member with City Year Chicago, fostering her dual interests in community advocacy and education. She went on to receive her medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles and to complete her pediatrics residency at Stanford University School of Medicine.

    During her research time as a pediatric hematology oncology fellow, Dr. Goyal has pursued a Master's degree in the Community Health and Prevention Research Program at Stanford University. She sought this additional research training to learn how to parter effectively with communities to achieve health equity. Specifically, her primary research project has utilized the principles of community based participatory research to partner with a local organization, Jacob's Heart, and to understand the financial burden of childhood cancer for Latinx families. Additionally, she has honed a skill set in medical education and is conducting research on how to promote well being for pediatric hematology oncology fellows.
