Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics - Critical Care
Clinical Associate Professor (By courtesy), Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests reside in the field of Neurocritical Care Medicine. My research focus has included inflammation following traumatic brain injury, outcome prediction after cardiac arrest, and neuro-monitoring in the pediatric intensive care setting. These interests are integrated clinically to focus on the merging of specialized neurologic monitoring and care with prognostic efforts in critically ill patients.
Babak Razavi, MD, PhD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
BioDr. Razavi's clinical interests are in medically refractory epilepsies and using high density EEG (electroencephalogram) for better localization of seizure foci. His research areas include using advanced digital signal processing and engineering techniques for analyzing EEG and using seizures as a model for understanding consciousness.
Dr. Razavi is the Director of DEL - Distributed EEG Lab. DEL's vision is to make EEG easy as 1, 2, 3. We turn complexity into simplicity. We are distributed in time and space. DEL was founded in the spirit of cloud computing, networking, and the notion that research in collaboration is more exciting and fruitful than in isolation. Everyone contributes - no matter how small; everyone wins - no matter how big. It was inspired by the mentorship of Dr. Kimford Meador and Dr. Robert Fisher. All you need is access to a computer and the internet.
DEL is the ideal collaborative environment for students (undergraduate and graduate) and faculty who would like to: (1) apply ready-to-use advanced analytical techniques to test specific hypotheses in cognition, neuroscience and epilepsy, and (2) develop and test new algorithms for analyzing EEG and other biological signals.
Lucia Angelica Rivera Lara, MD, MPH
Clinical Associate Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
BioDr. Rivera-Lara is a neurocritical care fellowship-trained neurologist and a clinical associate professor in the Department of Neurology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
As a member of the neurocritical care team, Dr. Rivera-Lara expertise focuses on the prompt, careful assessment and treatment of patients who suffer stroke, cerebral hemorrhage, and seizures.
In her research, Dr. Rivera-Lara has studied innovations to control blood flow and relieve intracranial pressure in patients with hemorrhage. Her findings have been published in journals including Critical Care Medicine, Neurocritical Care, Stroke, Seizure, the Journal of Neurosurgery and Anesthesiology, JAMA, and presented at the International Stroke Conference, the Critical Care Conference, and at meetings of the American Academy of Neurology and Neurocritical Care Society.
She has co-authored book chapters on stroke management, neurocritical patient monitoring, antiepileptic drug therapies, brain injury after cardiac arrest, and other topics. In addition, she has served as an editorial reviewer for publications including Neurology, Critical Care Medicine, the Journal of Critical Care, Neurocritical Care and Frontiers of Neurology.
Dr. Rivera-Lara earned a Clinical Reaserch Fellowship Training award from the American Academy of Neurology and American Brain Foundation. She was nominated for the Best Consulting Physician Award, one of only a few clinical honors bestowed annually on physicians and care teams by Johns Hopkins Medicine.
She is a member of the American Academy of Neurology, American Neurological Association, Society of Critical Care Medicine, and Neurocritical Care Society.
In conjunction with the Pan-American Health Organization and World Health Organization, Dr. Rivera-Lara has volunteered her time and expertise to help develop neurocritical care recommendations for patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome associated with Zika virus in the Dominican Republic. She also has served as a visiting professor in the Department of Neurology at the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Mexico City and Ignacio Morones Prieto Hospital in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
