    Anil K. Panigrahi

    Clinical Associate Professor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
    Clinical Associate Professor (By courtesy), Pathology

    BioAnil K. Panigrahi, M.D., Ph.D. is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Departments of Anesthesiology and Pathology (by courtesy) at Stanford University. Board-certified in Anesthesiology and Transfusion Medicine, Dr. Panigrahi works clinically in both specialties.

    Dr. Panigrahi currently leads Patient Blood Management initiatives throughout Stanford Medicine and serves as Stanford Anesthesiology Director of Patient Blood Management, Co-Chair of the Stanford Health Care Transfusion Committee, Medical Director of Stanford Anesthesiology’s Perioperative Anemia Management Clinic, and an Assistant Medical Director of the Stanford Health Care Transfusion Service.

    Dr. Panigrahi is a contributor to leading academic textbooks of Anesthesiology and Transfusion Medicine, including Miller’s Anesthesia and the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies (AABB) Technical Manual. He regularly lectures at national conferences and has presented at annual meetings for the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), AABB, and the Society for the Advancement of Patient Blood Management (SABM). He is an active member of the ASA, serving on the ASA’s Committee on Patient Blood Management since 2018, and is also a member of the AABB, SABM, and the California Society of Anesthesiologists (CSA), where he has served as a District Delegate.

    Dr. Panigrahi is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Duke University and received his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, where he was awarded the John G. Clark Prize for meritorious research. He completed residency training in Anesthesiology at Stanford University and completed fellowship in Blood Banking/Transfusion Medicine in the Department of Pathology also at Stanford.

  • Amalia Perna

    Amalia Perna

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Pathology

    BioDr. Perna received her education at the University of Urbino (BSc in Biological Science) and at the University of Trieste (MSc in Functional Genomics).
    She obtained her Ph.D. in Neuroscience/Medical Sciences in 2021, from the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) in collaboration with the Swiss Integrative Center for Human Health (SICHH). During her doctoral studies, she investigated the molecular players involved in the neurodegenerative process, with special attention to Notch signaling modulation in the neuronal demise after kainic acid (KA)-induced excitotoxicity

    With funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), Dr. Perna joined Prof. Thomas Montine's lab at Stanford University and extended her doctoral research work to single-cell technologies such as single-nucleus RNA-seq. In February 2022 she was appointed as a postdoctoral fellow in Montine Lab.

    Dr. Perna’s research aims to elucidate the modulation of signaling pathways in the different cell types of the brain after the perturbation of its homeostasis. She is also interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal regeneration/recovery after damage and in neurodegenerative diseases.
