Berthold and Belle N. Guggenhime Professor, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in the prevention and control of critical care-related illnesses and complications, including ventilator-associated pneumonia, spread of nosocomial infections, and prognosis of multiple organ system failure in intensive care units. Infections and complications of therapy in immunocompromised hosts, including effects of chemotherapy and hematopoetic stem cell transplants is another interest.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Robinson originated the solution-oriented research paradigm and directs the Stanford Solutions Science Lab. He is known for his pioneering obesity prevention and treatment research, including the concept of stealth interventions. His research applies social cognitive models of behavior change to behavioral, social, environmental and policy interventions for children and families in real world settings, making the results relevant for informing clinical and public health practice and policy.

Stephan Rogalla, M.D. PhD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe research interest of myself and my lab are in the field of early cancer detection using targeted molecular spies to highlight (pre)cancerous lesions. We as well aim to improve precision medicine in autoimmune disorders like inflammatory bowel disease and oncology.
Albert "A.J." Rogers, MD, MBA
Instructor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
BioDr. Albert “A.J.” Rogers, MD, MBA is a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist and cardiovascular research scientist at Stanford University. He is trained in cardiac electrophysiology, biomedical and software engineering, signal processing, and data science. Clinically, his expertise is in complex arrhythmia mapping and ablation, including atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia. He also performs cardiac device implantation of leadless pacemakers, conduction system pacing, cardiac resynchronization therapy, defibrillators, and event recorders. In research, he is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other agencies to investigate pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. His research explores the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmia using signal processing, machine learning, and in silico modeling. He has over 10 years of medical technology innovation and development experience ranging from design to preclinical and clinical studies.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe use genetics and genomics methodologies to identify novel ARDS pathobiology; we hope that this will enable identification of novel biomarkers, phenotypes, and treatments for the disease. We are building a plasma biobank of critically ill patients at Stanford, with a particular focus on metabolic changes in critical illness.
