Assistant Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery (Adult Cardiac Surgery)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Huangs laboratory aims to understand the chemical and mechanical interactions between extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and pluripotent stem cells that regulate vascular and myogenic differentiation. The fundamental insights of cell-matrix interactions are applied towards stem cell-based therapies with respect to improving cell survival and regenerative capacity, as well as engineered vascularized tissues for therapeutic implantation.
Associate Professor (Research) of Neurology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We study the role of oxygen free radicals in oxidative tissue damage and degeneration. Our research tools include transgenic and knockout mice and tissue culture cells for in vitro gene expression.
James Huddleston, MD
Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My primary research interests include arthritis, clinical outcomes of primary and revision hip and knee replacement surgery, evaluation of the inflammatory cascade that leads to premature failure of hip and knee replacements, biomaterials, and the design of hip and knee implants and instrumentation.
Professor of Pediatrics (Genetics) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital and, by courtesy, of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in prenatal genetic screening and diagnosis.
Lynne C. Huffman
Associate Professor (Teaching) of Pediatrics (Neonatology) and, by courtesy, of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research interests and activities include (1) the early identification and treatment of behavioral problems, particularly in children with special health care needs; (2) emergent literacy and school readiness; and, (3) community-based mental health/educational program evaluation and outcomes measurement.
Professor of Neurology, of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Molecular and Cellular Physiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in the neuronal mechanisms that underlie synchronous oscillatory activity in the thalamus, cortex and the massively interconnected thalamocortical system. Such oscillations are related to cognitive processes, normal sleep activities and certain forms of epilepsy. Our approach is an analysis of the discrete components (cells, synapses, microcircuits) that make up thalamic and cortical circuits, and reconstitution of components into in silico computational networks.
Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Public Mental Health and Population Sciences)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Humphreys researches interventions for substance abuse and psychiatric disorders. He focuses particularly on evaluating the outcomes of professionally-administered treatments and peer-operated self-help groups (e.g., Alcoholics Anonymous), developing health services research-related applications for innovative qualitative and quantitative research techniques, and analyzing national mental health policy.

-Surgical treatment of Achilles tendon disorders
-Locked and non-locked plate fixation techniques for foot and ankle trauma and arthrodesis
-Post-operative pain control following surgical procedures in the foot and ankle
