Associate Professor of Neurobiology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy laboratory studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the organization of cortical circuits important for spatial navigation and memory. We are particularly focused on medial entorhinal cortex, where many neurons fire in spatially specific patterns and thus offer a measurable output for molecular manipulations. We combine electrophysiology, genetic approaches and behavioral paradigms to unravel the mechanisms and behavioral relevance of non-sensory cortical organization. Our first line of research is focused on determining the cellular and molecular components crucial to the neural representation of external space by functionally defined cell types in entorhinal cortex (grid, border and head direction cells). We plan to use specific targeting of ion channels, combined with in vivo tetrode recordings, to determine how channel dynamics influence the neural representation of space in the behaving animal. A second, parallel line of research, utilizes a combination of in vivo and in vitro methods to further parse out ionic expression patterns in entorhinal cortices and determine how gradients in ion channels develop. Ultimately, our work aims to understand the ontogenesis and relevance of medial entorhinal cortical topography in spatial memory and navigation.

Aaron D. Gitler
Stanford Medicine Basic Science ProfessorOn Partial Leave from 09/01/2021 To 06/30/2022
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe investigate the mechanisms of human neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, and ALS. We don't limit ourselves to one model system or experimental approach. We start with yeast, perform genetic and chemical screens, and then move to other model systems (e.g. mammalian tissue culture, mouse, fly) and even work with human patient samples (tissue sections, patient-derived cells, including iPS cells) and next generation sequencing approaches.
BioAlex Gitlin, M.D., Ph.D. is an Instructor in the Department of Pathology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Prior to Stanford, Alex received his M.D. from Weill Cornell Medicine (2017) and his Ph.D. from Rockefeller University (2016) as part of the Weill Cornell/Sloan-Kettering/Rockefeller, Tri-Institutional M.D.-Ph.D. program. During his graduate training, Alex worked on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying germinal center reactions and the formation of long-lived humoral immunity. His work helped elucidate the mechanisms by which CD4+ T cells induce selective clonal expansion of germinal center B cells during immune responses. Currently, Alex's clinical and research interests lie in understanding the molecular basis of inflammatory immune responses in the context of normal and genetically immunodeficient states.
Stanley McCormick Memorial Professor in the School of Medicine, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur research is in reproductive endocrinology and reproductive genomics. It focuses on human endometrial biology as it relates to basic biological mechanisms underlying steroid hormone action in this tissue, normal and abnormal placenta-decidua interactions, mechanisms underlying placentation and abnormal fetal growth, endometrial stem cells, and functional genomics for diagnostics and therapeutics of endometrial disorders. We also study mechanisms underlying ovarian follicle steroidogenesis.

Alan M Glaseroff
Adjunct Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
BioDr. Alan Glaseroff served as the Director of Workforce Transformation in Primary Care at Stanford from the fall of 2015 until mid-June of 2016, where he was responsible for training the teams for Primary Care 2.0, a radical redesign of primary care underway in 2016. He will be joining the faculty at Stanford's Clinical Excellence Research Center this summer, working with Dr. Arnie Milstein to help develop new models of care. He formerly served as Co-Director of Stanford Coordinated Care, a service for patients with complex chronic illness from 2011 to the end of 2015. Dr. Glaseroff, a member of the Innovation Brain Trust for the UniteHERE Health, currently serves as faculty for the Institute of Healthcare Improvement’s “Better Care, Lower Cost” collaborative and served as a a Clinical Advisor to the PBGH “Intensive Outpatient Care Program” CMMI Innovation Grant that completes in June 2015. He served on the NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Advisory Committee 2009-2010, and the “Let’s Get Healthy California” expert task force in 2012,. Dr. Glaseroff was named the California Family Physician of the Year for 2009.
Dr. Glaseroff’s interests focus on the intersection of the meaning of patient-centered team care, patient activation, and the key role of self-management within the context of chronic conditions.
The Coordinated Care clinic is an exclusive benefit for eligible members of the Stanford University, Stanford Health Care, SLAC and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital community and their covered adult dependents with ongoing health conditions.

Ira D Glick
Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsSchizophrenia is one of the major public health problems in American medicine. Treatment is partially efficacious but unsatisfactory. Accordingly, our research focuses on treatment outcome in two areas; finding more effective medications which have less side effects than current medications, and in the effects of combining medication with psychosocial interventions.
