Current Research and Scholarly Interests My current research focuses on:
1) Using optogenetic strategies to stimulate the targeted neurons for brain repair after stroke.
2) Detecting the neural circuit and molecular mechanisms underlying the stroke recovery.

Steven D. Chang, MD
Robert C. and Jeannette Powell Neurosciences Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical research includes studies in the treatment of cerebrovascular disorders, such as aneurysms and AVMs, as well as the use of radiosurgery to treat tumors and vascular malformations of the brain and spine.
Dr. Chang is C0-Director of the Cyberknife Radiosurgery Program.
Dr. Chang is also the head of the The Stanford Neuromolecular Innovation Program with the goal of developing new technologies to improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients affected by neurological conditions.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurosurgery
Bio Nav Chaudhary, MD, FRCSC, is a Clinical Associate Professor of Neurosurgery. She received her medical degree from McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. Dr. Chaudhary completed her neurosurgery residency at the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada and fellowships in Spine Neurosurgery and Cyberknife Radiosurgery at Stanford University School of Medicine.
She works primarily in CyberKnife Neurosurgery at the Stanford Cancer Center, predominantly treating patients with brain and spine tumors, brain and spine arteriovenous malformations, and trigeminal neuralgia.
Her research interests include surgical outcomes. She has co-authored several papers relating to spine conditions, vascular malformations, and brain tumor management.
Professor of Neurosurgery and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests What distinguishes us humans from other animals is our ability to undergo complex behavior. The synapses are the structural connection between neurons that mediates the communication between neurons, which underlies our various cognitive function. My research program aims to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie synapse function during behavior in the developing and mature brain, and how synapse function is altered during mental retardation.

Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Cheng's research interests lie in the biologic enhancement of spinal fusions, molecular techniques of intervertebral disc regeneration, and techniques of spinal instrumentation. For more information, please go to http://www.ivanchengmd.com.
Sr Res Scientist-Basic Life, Neurosurgery
Current Role at Stanford I am a senior scientist in Dr. Gary's Steinberg's lab. I supervise several projects that use optogenetics, imaging techniques and next generation sequencing to study post-stroke neural circuit dynamics and recovery mechanisms. My main interests are to study how the brain recovers from injury at both the neural circuit and molecular level, and to develop strategies to promote the recovery process.
