Michael Greicius, MD, MPH
Iqbal Farrukh and Asad Jamal Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Administrative and Academic Special Programs)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAs the Medical Director of the Stanford Center for Memory Disorders and Principal Investigator of the Stanford Extreme Phenotypes in Alzheimer's Disease (StEP AD) Cohort, Dr. Greicius' research focuses on elucidating the neurobiologic underpinnings of AD. His lab combines cutting edge brain imaging, "deep" phenotyping, and whole-genome sequencing of human subjects to identify novel pathways involved in AD pathogenesis. The goal of his work is to develop effective treatment for AD patients.

BioEnvironmental enteric dysfunction (EED) affects 50-90% of children in low-income countries and is likely an important factor in child stunting as it impedes efficient nutrient uptake in the small intestine. EED is suspected to be the result of persistent exposure to enteric pathogens, although it has not been correlated with any specific pathogen. My research explores the interplay of gut microbiota, including enteric pathogens, and the host immune system with a focus on understanding EED so we can rationally design treatments and preventive measures.
Nicolas Grillet, PhD
Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe are interested in identifying the genes leading to Hearing and Vestibular impairments, and understanding their function at the molecular level.
We have a special focus on how the Hair Cells are able to detect mechanical stimulation.

Eric R. Gross
Associate Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsA part of the laboratory studies organ injury and how common genetic variants may affect the response to injury caused by surgery; particularly aldehydes. Aldehyde accumulation can cause many post-operative complications that people experience during surgery- whether it be reperfusion injury, post-operative pain, cognitive dysfunction, or nausea. The other part of the lab studies the impact of e-cigarettes and alcohol, when coupled with genetics, on the cardiopulmonary system.
Ernest R. Hilgard Professor and Professor of Psychology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in emotion and emotion regulation. My research employs behavioral, physiological, and brain measures to examine emotion-related personality processes and individual differences. My current interests include emotion coherence, specific emotion regulation strategies (reappraisal, suppression), automatic emotion regulation, and social anxiety.

John Mark Gubatan
Instructor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
BioDr. Gubatan is a physician scientist, board-certified gastroenterologist, and instructor of medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine. He earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School and completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Harvard's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He completed his gastroenterology fellowship at Stanford where he served as chief fellow and was an American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) editorial fellow for Gastroenterology. Dr. Gubatan’s research is focused on translational studies using single-cell genomics to understand mechanisms of biologic therapy failure, elucidate the role of host immune and gut microbiome interactions in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and develop precision medicine strategies to improve outcomes in patients with IBD. Dr. Gubatan’s work has been featured in Gastroenterology, Gut, American Journal of Gastroenterology, Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Journal of Crohns & Colitis, and Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. Dr. Gubatan's research and career development has been supported by a Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Physician Scientist Scholar Award, a Stanford Translational Research and Applied Medicine (TRAM) Scholar Award, an NIH NIDDK LRP Award, and a Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Physician Scientist Fellowship Award.
