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.
William H. Robinson, MD PhD
James W. Raitt, M.D. Professor
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur lab investigates the molecular mechanisms of and develops therapies to treat autoimmune and rheumatic diseases, with a focus on rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, and osteoarthritis.
The overriding objectives of our laboratory are:
1. To elucidate the mechanisms underlying autoimmune and rheumatic diseases.
2. To investigate the role of innate immune inflammation in osteoarthritis.
3. To develop novel diagnostics and therapeutics
Stanley G. Rockson, MD
Allan and Tina Neill Professor of Lymphatic Research and Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy clinical research includes studies on risk factor modification in atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease; clinical trials involving medical therapies for peripheral arterial insufficiency; coronary angiogenesis; therapy of lymphedema; atherand photodynamic therapy in atherosclerosis.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)
BioFatima Rodriguez, MD, MPH is an Assistant Professor in Cardiovascular Medicine and (by courtesy) the Stanford Prevention Research Center. She received her MD and MPH from Harvard University and completed residency in internal medicine at the Brigham and Women's Hospital. Dr. Rodriguez arrived at Stanford University in 2014, where she completed a cardiovascular medicine fellowship and served as Chief Fellow. She specializes in the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, lipid disorders, and cardiovascular risk assessment in high-risk populations.
Dr. Rodriguez’s research includes a range of topics relating to racial, ethnic, and gender disparities in cardiovascular disease prevention and developing novel interventions to address disparities.
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.
Instructor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
BioDr. Albert (A.J.) Rogers is a Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiologist and research scientist at Stanford University. His undergraduate coursework in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University focused on neurobiology, signal processing, and computer modeling while his research investigated piezoelectric arrays for intracardiac ultrasound and computer vision of 3D ultrasound images for automated surgical robot tasks (Stephen Smith Laboratory). He earned his medical and business degrees (MD/MBA) from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and the Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC (focus in Healthcare Entrepreneurship). He has medical technology experience ranging from basic and translational research to first-in-man studies, device development, and entrepreneurship. He completed training in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Medicine, and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology at Stanford University. His research endeavors to explore mechanisms of cardiac fibrillation using techniques of signal processing, machine learning, and in silico modeling. Outside of his research and clinical pursuits, A.J. enjoys athletics of all kinds (especially soccer and sand volleyball), travelling, and cooking.
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.

She is a strong advocate for patient experience and serves as the Medical Director for the Clinical Advice Services at Stanford Health Care.
Associate Professor of Biochemistry and of Medicine (Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly Intereststhe overall goal of my laboratory is to uncover new regulatory mechanisms in signaling systems, to understand how these mechanisms are damaged in disease states, and to devise new strategies to repair their function.
Dana Nirel Romalis
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
BioDana Romalis has been a board certified Family Medicine physician since 2004. She enjoys taking care of families throughout all phases of life. Special interests include teaching, collaborative care, preventative medicine, behavioral change, and reproductive and adolescent health. Since 2017, she has been a primary care provider at the Life Connections Health Center in San Jose, caring for Cisco employees and their families.
She was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, where she also attended medical school at the University of British Columbia. As an undergraduate at Brandeis University, she double majored in Neuroscience and Psychology, and was captain of the women’s varsity diving team. She did her residency at Montefiore Medical Center’s Residency Program of Social Medicine in the Bronx, NY.
Prior to joining Stanford’s primary care division in 2017, she worked for 10 years as a physician at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center on their interdisciplinary Valley Homeless Healthcare Program. She is committed to comprehensive and compassionate care for all.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 teenagers, reading, hiking, biking, and volunteering in her community.
