  • Henk van Voorst

    Henk van Voorst

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioDr. van Voorst is a postdoctoral scholar in Radiology studying the interfaces of artificial intelligence and neuroradiological imaging in stroke. Originally educated as an MD, Dr. van Voorst gained additional degrees in Finance and Data Science. As a PhD student, Dr. van Voorst focused on cost-effectiveness modeling and developed machine learning and deep learning algorithms with applications in acute ischemic stroke imaging. In his current research, Dr. van Voorst develops artificial intelligence algorithms to automatically extract information from arteries and veins in radiological stroke imaging.

  • Jie Wang

    Jie Wang

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioDr. Jie Wang is deeply passionate about magnetic nanotechnology, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic particle imaging (MPI), magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs), magnetic nanofluid hyperthermia (MNFH), magnetic biosensors, etc., for biomedical applications. His dissertation focuses on MRI-guided magnetic hyperthermia for cancer theranostics. Currently, his research interests include developing enzyme-activable nanoparticles for brain cancer theranostics and employing multi-modal imaging modalities to investigate the interaction between nanoparticles and biosystems (nano-bio interaction) within tumor microenvironment.

  • Aroosa Zamarud, MD

    Aroosa Zamarud, MD

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioDr. Aroosa Zamarud is a medical doctor who completed her undergraduate education at Bannu Medical College, Khyber Medical University, Pakistan. Following her graduation and a one-year medical internship, she served as a Medical Officer at Zubaida Khaliq Memorial Hospital, Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan, a charitable institution. During her tenure, she organized medical camps in remote villages in Northern Pakistan, providing healthcare services to underprivileged populations.

    In March 2022, Dr. Zamarud joined the Stanford Neurosurgery department as a Visiting Instructor. Her research primarily focused on Clinical Neurooncology, with a special emphasis on the use of Cyberknife stereotactic radiosurgery as a treatment modality for various benign and malignant brain pathologies, including Vestibular Schwannoma, Sarcoma, Spinal metastases, Meningioma, Pineal and Pituitary metastases, and Arteriovenous malformations.

    Currently, Dr. Zamarud is serving as a postdoctoral fellow in neurointerventional Radiology. Her ongoing research centers on investigating the role of venous outflow in patients with acute ischemic stroke, among other stroke-related studies.
