David S. Hong
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Interdisciplinary Brain Science Research)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Hong is a child and adolescent psychiatrist and clinician-scientist. His responsibilities span clinical care, teaching/mentorship, and research, with a unifying theme of advancing a developmental cognitive framework as applied to psychiatric conditions. Using this core premise, he work encompasses multiple domains: specialized clinical care, fellowship training, research mentorship, and elaborating the role of sex-specific determinants of development, one of the greatest contributors to individual developmental variation.
His lab investigates genetic and hormonal influences underlying sex differences in child psychiatric conditions. Sex has emerged as a critical variable driving differences in the phenomenology, course, and treatment of many mental health disorders. Unfortunately, an understanding of the biological mechanisms driving these effects are limited. By applying innovative neuroimaging and multiomic approaches, Dr. Hong seeks to provide a deeper understanding of the connection between sex-specific effects and complex psychiatric diseases. To do so, research in the Hong Lab focuses on the role of genes on the X and Y chromosomes, as well as circulating sex hormones on brain development, cognition, and behavior. The lab broadly aims to elucidate the changing nature of these mechanisms across various stages of development.
Another area of focus is the implementation of clinical informatics in child psychiatry and the development of digital mental health tools. As co-Director of the Mental Health Technology and Innovation Hub, Dr. Hong is helping to develop clinical and research infrastructure within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences to advance development of mobile mental health resources that will improve efficacy and access to mental health care.

He has expertise and experience with diabetes epidemiology and interventions, study design, methodology, data management, and advanced statistical methods. There are two content threads to his work: 1) construct prevention and treatment programs to address modifiable psychological and family factors that create barriers to optimal diabetes management, and 2) optimize the use of devices and technologies to improve health outcomes. With regard to the first thread, Dr. Hood has successfully implemented depression screening programs in tertiary diabetes and GI clinics within a Quality Improvement framework, and recently completed a large scale clinical trial on a distress prevention program for teens with type 1 diabetes. Dr. Hood manages and analyzes all the data from these studies. From a device and technology standpoint, Dr. Hood coordinates the Human Factors assessments in Drs. Maahs’ and Buckingham’s closed loop studies and is recognized as one of the experts in this area nationally and internationally. In addition, he has implemented Human Factors assessments in national (e.g., T1D Exchange) studies and registries and is the lead psychologist on 2 of the 4 UC4 grants from NIDDK (Hovorka, PI; Bergenstal, PI). These assessments focus on uptake of devices and technologies, and determining strategies to promote uptake and optimize their use. Dr. Hood and his research team have published over 100 scientific articles on these topics and are active presenters at diabetes, behavioral medicine, and advocacy conferences.
Dr. Hood also works in clinical and service settings. Dr. Hood is a licensed clinical psychologist and is part of the diabetes care team at Stanford. He is the past chair of the American Diabetes Association’s Behavioral Medicine and Psychology Interest Group and is currently a member of the Research Policy Committee. He was also a member of the ADA’s Call to Congress in March 2017. Dr. Hood is an Associate Editor for both Diabetes Care and Pediatric Diabetes.
Jessica Hooper, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery
BioDr. Hooper is a board-certified, fellowship-trained Orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee joint replacement surgery. She is a clinical assistant professor at Stanford University School of Medicine and heads the outpatient joint replacement program at the Stanford Outpatient Surgery Center in Redwood City.
A Bay Area native, Dr. Hooper attended college at UCLA, where she worked as a student athletic trainer for the football and women’s gymnastics teams. She went to medical school at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and was named a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. She completed Orthopedic residency training at the prestigious New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases in Manhattan. In residency, she mentored local female high school students interested in STEM as part of the Perry Initiative program, worked with local surgeons in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and received excellent training in all facets of Orthopaedic surgery and patient care. She then completed a fellowship at Stanford University, where she obtained additional training in hip and knee joint replacement. She is motivated by the dramatic improvements in quality of life that patients experience after surgery and is passionate about helping her patients return to the activities that matter most to them. She began her practice at Kaiser Permanente, where she gained experience in safe and effective management of same-day total joint replacement patients.
Dr. Hooper performs a full range of Orthopaedic procedures to treat injures and conditions related to hip and knee degenerative conditions, such as arthritis, avascular necrosis, and post-traumatic injuries. Dr. Hooper will help her patients first explore nonsurgical treatments and may recommend surgery once activities of daily living have been significantly affected. She specializes in tissue-sparing surgical techniques, including anterior approach total hip replacement, and performs hundreds of hip and knee replacements annually. She believes that less muscle disruption enables an easier patient recovery. Dr. Hooper also uses robotic navigation during knee replacement surgery to optimize outcomes. She views each of her patients as individuals; she takes the time to understand their unique goals and adjust treatment plans accordingly.
Dr. Hooper has written articles and book chapters on a variety of topics related to techniques, technologies, and outcomes in joint replacement surgery. She has given presentations on her research at national meetings for the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. She was also the recipient of the 2018 American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons FARE grant for her work on the use of virtual reality as a teaching tool for residents learning total hip replacement.
Dr. Hooper is a member of the American Academy of Hip and Knee Surgeons, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and the Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society for female surgeons.
Jody Elizabeth Hooper
Associate Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am the Director of the Research Autopsy Collaboration at Stanford (RACS) to collect organs and tissues from decedent donors for cancer and disease research. https://med.stanford.edu/racs
I have a number of research interests associated with my autopsy work, including how the time interval between death and collection (the PMI) affects the condition and research viability of the collected tissue, how valuable blood and tissue cultures behave after death, and how autopsy results affect clinical practice in an established information loop. I have projects exploring physician and family attitudes towards autopsy and the utilization of rapid autopsy tissue in characterizing cancer evolution from genetic and immunologic standpoints.
