Professor of Biomedical Data Science and of Statistics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsStatistical models and reasoning are key to our understanding of the genetic basis of human traits. Modern high-throughput technology presents us with new opportunities and challenges. We develop statistical approaches for high dimensional data in the attempt of improving our understanding of the molecular basis of health related traits.

Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (General Psychiatry and Psychology-Adult)On Partial Leave from 09/15/2021 To 03/14/2022
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsPrimary research interests include the nature and treatment of eating disorders
(particularly bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder), the development and treatment of obesity, and the development and treatment of problematic eating patterns in patients following bariatric surgery.
Marc R. Safran, MD
Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Safrans practice focuses on arthroscopic management of hip problems as well as articular cartilage regeneration, shoulder surgery and athletic shoulder and elbow problems. He is actively involved in research in these areas.
Elaine and John Chambers Professor of Pediatric Cancer and Professor of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe investigate the mechanisms by which normal cells become tumor cells, and we combine genetics, genomics, and proteomics approaches to investigate the differences between the proliferative response in response to injury and the hyperproliferative phenotype of cancer cells and to identify novel therapeutic targets in cancer cells.
Assistant Professor (Research) of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Interdisciplinary Brain Science Research)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe overarching goal of my research is to develop reliable computational methods that will allow for characterizing and modeling temporal dynamics of brain activity, without averaging data in either space or time. I firmly believe that the spatiotemporal richness in brain activity might hold the key to finding the person- and disorder-centric biomarkers. I am currently developing methods to model the temporal dynamics of brain activity in individuals with fragile X syndrome and healthy controls.
Gregory Lee Sahlem
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (General Psychiatry and Psychology)
BioDr.Sahlem is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. He is board-certified in general psychiatry and addictions medicine, as well as fellowship-trained in the research and clinical application of neuromodulation-based treatments including repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), and vagus nerve stimulation (VNS). He additionally has advanced training in the treatment of mood and sleep disorders. In addition to being an active clinician, Dr.Sahlem is a member of the Stanford Brain Stimulation Lab and directs the Addictions Research Section of the Lab.
Major areas of study for Dr.Sahlem include: The development of rTMS as a focused treatment for addictive disorders; the development of a novel form of ECT theorized to have reduced cognitive side effects, Focal Electrically Administered Seizure Therapy (FEAST), and; the further development of rTMS for the treatment of mood disorders.

Kathleen M. Sakamoto
Shelagh Galligan Professor in the School of Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research focuses on the molecular pathways that regulate normal and aberrant blood cell development, including acute leukemia and bone marrow failure syndromes. We are also studying novel drugs for treatment of cancer.
Sarada Sakamuri, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Clinical Assistant Professor (By courtesy), Neurosurgery
BioDr. Sarada Sakamuri specializes in neuromuscular medicine. Her interests are in peripheral nerve injury, neuromuscular ultrasound, EMG/NCS, neurogenetic disorders, and medical education.
Dr. Sakamuri studied psychology at Rutgers University and she graduated with Phi Beta Kappa distinction. She obtained her medical degree from Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, where she lead multiple community service and medical education activities and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha and Gold Humanism Honor Societies. She moved to the Bay Area to pursue neurology residency at Stanford, where she later served as chief resident. She then completed two years of fellowship in EMG/Clinical Neurophysiology and Neuromuscular Medicine and research training at Forbes Norris MDA/ALS Research Center.
Upon graduation she joined the faculty at Stanford Neurology and Neurological Sciences, in the divisions of Neuromuscular Disorders and General Neurology. She was the first Stanford adult neurologist to establish clinics in San Pablo and Alameda and founded the Stanford Neurology Clinic in Emeryville. She continues to see patients with general neurology needs in the Neurology Residency Continuity Clinics.
Dr. Sakamuri's passion is neuromuscular medicine, with a focus on peripheral nerve traumas and disorders. She is Co-Director of the Center for Peripheral Nerve Surgery along with neurosurgeon Dr. Thomas J. Wilson. She performs advanced evaluations of peripheral nerve conditions by integrating nerve and muscle ultrasound and neurophysiologic testing (EMG/NCS) at the bedside, and founded the Stanford Neuromuscular Ultrasound Program. She has advanced training in nerve and muscle ultrasound, and sits on the Neuromuscular Ultrasound Committee of the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM).
She is board-certified in Neurology and Neuromuscular disorders by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). She is certified in EMG/NCS by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABEM), and also holds a Certificate of Added Qualification in Neuromuscular Ultrasound.
Dr. Sakamuri's other passion is medical education. She is the Director of the Stanford Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship and Associate Director of the Clinical Neurophysiology/EMG Fellowship. She supervises a weekly neurology resident continuity clinic and enjoys teaching sessions medical students as well as the fantastic neurology and physiatry residents and fellows. She has fond memories of her time as a clinical instructor at Jagiellonian University Medical College in Poland.
Instructor, Obstetrics & Gynecology - Reproductive Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am a cell and molecular biologist by training. During my PhD I worked on the identification of thymidine kinase 1 phosphorylation status during cell cycle progression and its relevance for PET imaging of cell proliferation. In the Stearns lab I was interested in how cells cope with multiple centrosomes and what are the mechanisms ensuring centrosome number homeostasis. In the Sebastiano lab I am studying germ cell differentiation and what are the cell biological effects of de-differentiation.
