Sanno Zack, PhD
Clinical Associate Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Zack is involved with ongoing research related to the treatment of adolescent and adult trauma (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - TF-CBT; Prolonged Exposure - PE), and the effective provision of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to adolescent girls and women with disorder of emotion regulation. She additionally studies Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for adolescent girls with anxiety. More broadly she is interested in the impact of Evidenced Based Treatments on improving quality of life, and helping individuals find the right match for clinical care. Research is conducted through the Early Life Stress and Pediatric Anxiety Disorders Program at Stanford Children's Hospital and the Stanford Dialectical Behavior Therapy Program.

Sandra Zaky, MD, MS, DABR
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Dr. Zaky is a board certified Radiation Oncologist. She received a Bachelor’s of Science in Biomedical/Electrical Engineering at Marquette University. She worked in research and development as an Engineer, and eventually received a Masters of Science in Immunology from Albany Medical College. Her research thesis focused on a novel therapy to treat hormone-receptor positive breast cancer. She continued to study breast cancer with her research during her Radiation Oncology residency; she integrated her research in the laboratory with her clinical research in triple-negative breast cancer. Since completing residency, she has worked as a general radiation oncologist, and her special interests include breast cancer, skin cancer, CNS tumors and stereotactic radiotherapy.

Marta Gaia Zanchi
Adjunct Professor, Surgery
Bio II am the creator and lead director of "Biodesign for Mobile Health" since 2012. This experiential, multidisciplinary, project-oriented course has been named by Stanford's Bioengineering "one of the flagship courses of our Department" and has trained over 200 students in a needs-driven process of mobile health technology innovation. The course is offered by the Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign, where I am working with the leadership group under the direct supervision of Paul Yock, MD, Founder and Director of Stanford Biodesign.
With Stanford Biodesign, I am co-leading Biodesign NEXT, an extension funding program designed to recognize the most promising projects by teams of students from select Biodesign courses through additional mentoring and funds to help advance the ideas towards improving health outcomes. I am also a member of Biodesign's Undergraduate Committee and a mentor to Biodesign Fellows and students from all corners of campus who share a passion for health technology innovation. I am motivated to help advance Stanford School of Medicine's work by faculty and students around Digital Health to foster quality research and facilitate the translation of research ideas into medical practice, industry-specific needs and meaningful health outcomes.
At Stanford, I also have the pleasure to advise on the board of SHIFT, a student initiative aiming to promote and cultivate health innovation on campus by creating a forum for developers, entrepreneurs, and pre-health students to collaborate. A motivated leadership team envisions the group as a platform that connects and empowers students with resources and opportunities to innovate in healthcare. SHIFT fulfills its mission through open roundtable discussions, the TreeHacks Health hackathon and a fellowship program that pairs students as health++ fellows with early-stage companies or faculty-sponsored projects.
When I am not at Stanford, you'll find me consulting, advising or otherwise engaging with and learning from the startup community of Silicon Valley. I am an equity partner at Data Collective VC, managing director and consultant at Medinnovo LLC, and advisory board member of privately-held companies.
