Casey H. Halpern, MD
Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University Medical 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.
Assistant Professor (Research) of Neurosurgery and of Medicine (BMIR)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy current research focuses on understanding the genetic and environmental etiology of complex disease and developing and evaluating efficient screening strategies based on etiological understanding. The areas of my research interests include statistical genetics, molecular epidemiology, cancer screening, health policy modeling, and risk prediction modeling. I have developed various statistical methods to analyze high-dimensional data to identify genetic and environmental risk factors and their interactions for complex disease.
Omid R. Hariri
Clinical Instructor, Neurosurgery
BioOmid R. Hariri, is a Clinical Instructor of Neurosurgery. He attended UCLA, where he obtained his BSc in Neurosciences and graduated with Summa Cum Laude. He pursued his research fellowship with Howard Hughes Medical Institution under the mentorship of Dr. Paul Micevych. He continued his graduate studies at UCLA, where he obtained his Masters in Neurobiology. He received his medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences.
Omid R. Hariri completed his neurological surgery residency at Riverside University Health System in Riverside, CA. Under the direct mentorship of his Chairman, Javed Siddiqi, M.D., Ph.D., he became the first fellow to the Board of Directors of California Association of Neurological Surgeons (CANS). He is currently pursuing his fellowship training in Complex Spine Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine.
Omid Hariri has authored multiple peer-reviewed publications in international journals. His research interests include Spinal Oncology and associated biomechanical instability.
Ciara Harraher, MD
Clinical Associate Professor, Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in medical education and I am an Associate in the Practice of Medicine and doctoring with CARE ( E4C) Program. I am also interested in surgical outcomes research and I am involved in clinical trials studying brain tumors and stroke. I have also presented internationally on issues related to improving diversity in Neurosurgery.

Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMicrosurgical treatment of tumors of the brain, spinal cord, pituitary gland and skull base;
Radiosurgery of tumors;
Molecular biology of brain tumors.
Melanie G Hayden Gephart
Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAs a neurosurgeon with an active practice treating patients with brain tumors, my lab uniquely understands the pressing clinical questions in neuro-oncology. My masters degree in clinical research provides understanding of the translational potential of newly identified treatments through the development of clinical trials. My basic science postdoctoral fellowship studied tumor genomics and identified potentially targetable genes crucial in tumorigenesis. My lab currently studies the capacity of cellular and cell-free DNA to inform treatment choices in patients with brain tumors, and single cell and cell subtype-specific transcriptomics of infiltrating glioblastoma.
Jaimie Henderson, MD
John and Jene Blume - Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests encompass several areas of stereotactic and functional neurosurgery, including frameless stereotactic approaches for therapy delivery to deep brain nuclei; deformable patient-specific atlases for targeting brain structures; cortical physiology and its relationship to normal and pathological movement; neural prostheses; and the development of novel neuromodulatory techniques for the treatment of movement disorders, pain, and other neurological diseases.
