Sharon Sha, MD, MS
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Bio Dr. Sha received her Bachelor’s degrees from UC Berkeley in Cognitive Science and Molecular Cell Biology, emphasizing in Neurobiology. She went on to obtain a Master’s degree in Physiology and MD from Georgetown University. She trained in Neurology at UCLA and Stanford University, and completed a clinical and research fellowship in Behavioral Neurology at UCSF, where she focused on identifying biomarkers for genetic forms of frontotemporal dementia and caring for patients with movement disorders and cognitive impairment.
While at UCSF, she saw the majority of patients with Huntington’s disease and ataxia in clinic and research, including ENROLL HD and the Natural History Study of and Genetic Modifiers in Spinocerebellar Ataxias. She has been a member of the Hungtington’s Study Group since 2011. She is board-certified in Neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and subspecialty boarded in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry by the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties.
Dr. Sha’s clinical expertise include Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy Body disease, corticobasal syndrome, progressive supranuclear palsy, Huntington’s disease, ataxia, multiple system atrophy, and other dementias.
Dr. Sha’s non-clinical time is spent conducting clinical trials in order to identify disease modifying treatments for dementia. She has a special interest in genetic forms of dementia and the cognitive impairment in Parkinsonian-related disorders.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My group’s research is on the mechanisms and consequences of virus evolution with a focus on HIV therapy and drug resistance. We maintain a public HIV drug resistance database (http://hivdb.stanford.edu) as a resource for HIV drug resistance surveillance, interpreting HIV drug resistance tests, and HIV drug development. Our paramount goal is to inform HIV treatment and prevention policies by identifying the main factors responsible for the emergence and spread of drug resistance.

Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Stem Cell Transplantation
Bio I did my training in Pediatrics and Hematology/ Oncology at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles where I was an attending physician for 15 years.. I joined Stanford University in 2015 as a clinical attending in the Division of Stem Cell Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine. My areas of clinical expertise have been in the areas of transplantation for immune deficiencies and immune reconstitution post HSCT. I was involved with several clinical gene therapy trial for SCID and ALD. My other main areas of research have been in the neurocognitive function post HSCT. I have been involved with several national committees addressing the late effects of HSCT within the ASBMT and COG.
