BioDr. Hall graduated summa cum laude from UC Santa Cruz with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and Behavior and received his MD from the Keck School of Medicine of USC. He completed an internal medicine internship at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. He went on to train in neurology at Stanford University where he also completed a clinical fellowship in behavioral neurology.
Dr. Hall’s clinical expertise includes mild cognitive impairment, dementia with Lewy bodies, Alzheimer’s disease, primary progressive aphasia, posterior cortical atrophy, frontotemporal dementia and vascular cognitive impairment.
Dr. Hall’s non-clinical time is spent studying novel imaging techniques for neurodegenerative disorders, participating in Alzheimer’s disease clinical trials and working with the Stanford Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe are currently investigating the effects of deep brain stimulation in obesity using mouse models of human behavior. Many obese individuals exhibit behavioral disinhibition, a clinical feature of many neurologic and psychiatric conditions. We are dissecting the mesocorticolimbic circuit with novel techniques including optogenetics.

BioI am a brain tumor neurosurgeon, treating patients with malignant and benign tumors, including glioma, brain metastases, meningioma, vestibular schwannoma, and pituitary adenomas. Our lab seeks greater understanding of the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms driving tumorigenesis and disease progression in malignant brain tumors. We currently study the capacity of cellular and cell-free DNA to inform treatment choices in patients with brain tumors. We also use single cell and cell subtype-specific transcriptomics to identify and target infiltrating glioblastoma. We hope to identify potentially targetable genes crucial in tumorigenesis. Our laboratory is a unique and collaborative working environment, engaged in a dynamic research environment at Stanford. Our laboratory space lies at the heart of the Stanford campus between the core campus and the medical facilities, emblematic of the translational aspects of our work.
