    Eduardo Pontes Reis

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioI'm a visiting scholar at Stanford AIMI Center, working in the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and Medicine. My purpose is to contribute to our understanding of intelligence. And our best chance to achieve this is through AI.

    Research highlights:

    - Published BRAX, the Brazilian Chest X-ray Dataset -

    - Open-sourced the PyTorch implementation of ConVIRT (Y Zhang et al), a contrastive learning method for radiologic images and text (before CLIP) -

    - Released Brain Hemorrhage Annotations - Brain Hemorrhage Extended - BHX (

    At Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein:

    - Started the Health Story project, a medical history timeline to support research and a more personalized clinical practice

    - Ran the development of AI algorithms for diseases of national importance: Tuberculosis, COVID, Melanoma and Head CT

  • Sushruta Surappa

    Sushruta Surappa

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioSushruta Surappa is a postdoctoral researcher at the Canary Center for Early Cancer Detection at Stanford University. His current research focuses on developing various MEMS-based tools for the separation and capture of extracellular vesicles for medical diagnostics. Sushruta received his MS (‘15) and PhD (‘21) degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, where he developed a new class of nonlinear MEMS transducers with applications in wireless power transfer, sensing and energy harvesting. He is passionate about developing low-cost, miniature technologies for medical diagnostics and is a keen proponent of science communication.

  • Zahra Shokri Varniab

    Zahra Shokri Varniab

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioZahra Shokri Varniab, MD, studied medicine at Tehran University of Medicine Sciences, Iran, and earned her medical degree in 2020. Her goal in novel cellular and molecular imaging is to develop novel in vivo imaging approaches to visualize, characterize and quantify molecular and cellular processes involved in developing brain tumors. She intends to utilize non-invasive imaging techniques to assess tumor microenvironment to understand their role in cancer, develop a method for determining tumor profiles, and also using brain MR Imaging to assess treatment response. She hopes cancer to be history.
