  • Filza Hussain

    Filza Hussain

    Clinical Associate Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Medical Psychiatry

    BioDr. Hussain completed her medical education in Karachi, Pakistan, at the Aga Khan University in 2005 and travelled to the US to pursue her interest in Psychiatry. During residency at the Mayo Clinic, Minnesota she was awarded the Mayo clinic M.J Martin award for excellence in CL psychiatry. It was at Mayo that she solidified her interest and identity as a Consultation Liaison Psychiatrist. Eliminating Mind body dualism while educating others and addressing stigma against psychiatry seemed like an effortless choice and so she pursued a CL fellowship at Columbia University in New York.
    Visa obligations took her first to the UK where she utilized her experience in evaluating CL service performance in large teaching hospitals in the NHS. She subsequently moved back to the US to serve as the sole outpatient provider for eleven different counties in Northwest Wisconsin with a panel of over 1500 patients at a Mayo clinic satellite. During this time, she was an active board member of NAMI, taught psychopathology in Crisis Intervention Training for the Eau Claire, and Chippewa Police departments and avidly contributed to international health blogs and newspaper articles with an aim to decrease stigma against psychiatry
    In Pursuit of a stimulating academic environment and a return to her true passion, CL psychiatry, she joined Stanford as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford University School of Medicine in 2017. As member of the Education Committee and as of 2022, the CLP Fellowship Associate Program Director, She has been active in helping to restructure the fellowship education experience, initiating several new seminars including the immersion series, the book seminar, and organizing the Chief of service rounds. Her clinical focus is transplant psychiatry, and she serves as the liaison to the Liver and Kidney transplant programs at Stanford. She continues to be engaged with the community and currently participates in the Liver Education and Awareness Program(LEAP) , an endeavor educating patients about Fatty Liver disease. Other areas of clinical/research interests include Personality disorders, Suicidology, Cultural Psychiatry and medical pedagogy. She is also working with Dr. Maldonado in developing the SIPAT-D, a tool for evaluation of live organ donors.

  • Ruth Huttenhain

    Ruth Huttenhain

    Assistant Professor of Molecular and Cellular Physiology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy group deciphers how G protein-coupled receptors decode extracellular cues into dynamic and context-specific cellular signaling networks to elicit diverse physiologic responses. We exploit quantitative proteomics to capture the spatiotemporal organization of signaling networks combined with functional genomics to study their impact on physiology.

  • Lisa Huynh, M.D.

    Lisa Huynh, M.D.

    Clinical Associate Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery

    BioDr. Huynh is an interventional spine physiatrist at the Stanford University Spine Center, where she specializes in the comprehensive conservative management of spine disorders. She earned her medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, where she served as Chief Resident. She then went on to fulfill a fellowship in Interventional Spine at Stanford University. She specializes in non-operative spine and musculoskeletal care, including fluoroscopic and ultrasound guided procedures.

  • Dongwoon Hyun

    Dongwoon Hyun

    Instructor, Radiology - Pediatric Radiology

    BioMy research interests are focused on the development and clinical translation of new ultrasound imaging techniques to improve the quality and diagnostic value of ultrasound imaging. My interests are in clinical translation of ultrasound molecular imaging for early cancer detection, improving image quality in difficult-to-image patients, and to reduce noise artifacts in ultrasound images. In my research, I have refined adaptive beamforming methods such as coherence-based imaging, helped to pioneer the use of deep learning tools on raw ultrasound data to produce more accurate B-mode images and more sensitive ultrasound molecular images, and developed GPU-based software beamforming tools to deploy these methods in real-time on experimental and clinical imaging systems.
