  • Matthew Kohrman

    Matthew Kohrman

    Associate Professor of Anthropology, and by courtesy, of Medicine (Stanford Prevention and Research Center) and Senior Fellow, by courtesy, at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies

    BioMatthew Kohrman’s research and writing bring anthropological methods to bear on the ways health, culture, and politics are interrelated. Focusing on the People's Republic of China, he engages various intellectual terrains such as governmentality, gender theory, political economy, critical science studies, narrativity, and embodiment. His first monograph, Bodies of Difference: Experiences of Disability and Institutional Advocacy in the Making of Modern China, raises questions about how embodied aspects of human existence, such as our gender, such as our ability to propel ourselves through space as walkers, cyclists and workers, become founts for the building of new state apparatuses of social provision, in particular, disability-advocacy organizations. Over the last decade, Prof. Kohrman has been involved in research aimed at analyzing and intervening in the biopolitics of cigarette smoking among Chinese citizens. This work, as seen in his recently edited volume--Poisonous Pandas: Chinese Cigarette Manufacturing in Critical Historical Perspectives--expands upon heuristic themes of his earlier disability research and engages in novel ways techniques of public health, political philosophy, and spatial history. More recently, he has begun projects linking ongoing interests at the intersection of phenomenology and political economy with questions regarding environmental attunement and the arts.

    Andre Kumar MD, MEd

    Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine

    BioDr. Andre Kumar is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Stanford Division of Hospital Medicine with a passion for improving patient care through Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS), clinical research, and education. He earned his MD degree from Tulane University and completed his residency and chief residency in internal medicine at Stanford University, where he also earned a Master's in Education.

    As a passionate educator and researcher, Dr. Kumar has completed three randomized trials on POCUS and its impact on patient care. He continues to conduct research and teach POCUS on a local and national level, and is committed to improving the science and education that underlie the next generation of diagnostic tools. He is the lead investigator for a multicenter trial related to ultrasound and COVID-19. He was also an investigator for the ACTT and ACTIV trials for COVID-19, which brought the first COVID-19 therapeutics to patients nationwide. Currently, he is the Stanford Hospital lead for the National Institutes of Health RECOVER trial, a 1 billion dollar effort to understand the long-term effects of COVID-19 on patients.

    Dr. Kumar has held numerous leadership positions, including serving as President of the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) Bay Area, Director of the Stanford Internal Medicine Procedure Service, Director for the Rathmann Fellowship in Medical Education, Director of the Stanford Medicine Residency Hospitalist Training Track, Associate Course Director and Q4 Lead for Practice of Medicine, Co-Director of Clinical Reasoning, and Co-Director for Advanced Clinical Skills in the School of Medicine
