Sharon E. Williams PhD
Clinical Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Child Development
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Williams work focuses primarily on cognitive and emotional recovery of children who have been medically compromised. With improved medical treatment and increased survival rates comes the need to better understand the challenges that patients face following a life threatening illness or injury. Dr. Williams utilizes neuropsychological assessments to understand the cognitive abilities of children who have been diagnosed with cancer, head injuries, genetic disorders and other medical conditions.
Clinical Instructor, Neurosurgery
BioMatt Willsey grew up in Greenwood, Indiana. He attended MIT, where he received B.S. and M.Eng degrees in Electrical Engineering with a research focus in digital signal processing. He attended medical school at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He completed his neurosurgery residency at the University of Michigan in 2022. Matt completed the enfolded CAST-approved fellowship in Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery and completed a PhD in Biomedical Engineering during his 2-year protected research time with an additional year long leave-of-absence. His clinical interests include deep brain stimulation, epilepsy, pain, and spine. His dissertation research with Drs. Parag Patil and Cynthia Chestek focuses on restorative neuroengineering, including intraoperative modulation of sensorimotor pathways, the effects of anesthetics on cortical signal flow, and brain-machine interface neuroprosthetics.
Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiological Sciences Laboratory
BioDr Wilson completed a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science (University of Auckland, New Zealand, 2007), and a Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Sciences (UoA, 2008).
He then changed his focus to engineering and applied mathematics, and completed a Masters of Operations Research (UoA, Faculty of Engineering, 2011). In his Master's thesis, he developed a mixed-integer linear formulation for determining optimal electricity distribution tariffs under a range of power generation conditions.
Dr Wilson then switched back his focused to the Medical Sciences and completed a PhD in Bioengineering with a joint appointment in the Department of Physiology and the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. His Doctoral thesis (2018) focused on the physiology and biomechanics of cardiac remodeling underpinning heart failure.
During his first Postdoctoral position (University of South Florida Heart Institute, 2018-2019), Dr Wilson developed nanoparticle therapies for myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury, as well as anti-thrombin nanoparticles to reduce thrombus formation while limiting bleeding risk.
Dr Wilson is currently a member of the Cardiac MRI Research Group at Stanford University (PI: Professor Daniel Ennis), and works on a range of projects including (i) using tissue clearing techniques to understand the fundamental branching structure of the myocardium (ii) developing new diffusion tensor MRI reconstruction techniques for extracting cardiac microstructure and pathology (iii) using MRI and histology to understand the myocardial structural and functional improvements brought about by ACE inhibitor treatment.

Professor of Pediatrics (Endocrinology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests cover a number of areas in Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes. I am PI of the Stanford Center for the NIH-funded Type-1 Diabetes TrialNet group. TrialNet conducts clinical trials directed at preventing or delaying the onset of Type 1 diabetes. I am an investigator in DirecNet, another NIH-funded study group, which is devoted to evaluating glucose sensors and the role of technology on the management of diabetes.
