    Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics

    Bio Dr. Pantaleoni is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine. She devotes her clinical time as a General Pediatric Hospitalist to the care of hospitaized children and their families at both Lucile Packard Children's Hospital and El Camino Hospital, in the Packard El Camino unit (PEC). She is also an Educator 4 CARE (E4C) at Stanford University School of Medicine and greatly enjoys fostering clinical skill development and professional identity formation with the Stanford medical students. Her scholarly interests surround undergraduate medical education, humanism in medicine and physician wellness.

  • Robertson Parkman

    Robertson Parkman

    Adjunct Professor, Pediatrics - Stem Cell Transplantation

    Bio My principal research interests have been the assessment of the immunological consequences of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation including both acute and chronic graft versus host disease and immune reconstitution and the use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation to treat genetic diseases. My laboratory was the first to suggest that chronic graft versus host disease was an autoimmune disease directed at histocompatibility antigens shared by donors and recipients. The observation leaded to the assessment of the role of thymic dysfunction in the pathogenesis of chronic graft versus host disease. As a pediatric immunologist I have investigated the role of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation initially in the treatment of primary immune deficiency diseases and later the treatment of metabolic diseases, which lead to my involvement in the early gene transfer clinical trials.

    Clinical Associate Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests involve the epidemiology, treatment and diagnosis of pediatric and young adult brain tumors. I am also interested in long-term neurologic effects and designing clinical trials to treat brain and spinal cord tumors.

  • Anca M. Pasca, MD

    Anca M. Pasca, MD

    Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The research focus of the lab is to understand molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders associated with premature birth, neonatal and fetal brain injury with the long-term goal of translating the lab’s findings into therapeutics. The research team employs a multidisciplinary approach involving genetics, molecular and developmental neurobiology, animal models and neural cells differentiated from patient-derived induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. In particular, the lab is using a powerful 3D human brain-region specific organoid system developed at Stanford (Nature Methods, 2015; Nature Protocols, 2018) to ask questions about brain injury during development.

  • Anisha I Patel

    Anisha I Patel

    Associate Professor of Pediatrics (General Pediatrics) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Patel's research interests focus on reducing socioeconomic disparities in chronic diseases, including childhood obesity. Over the past 10 years, Dr. Patel has led numerous studies to encourage healthy beverage intake among children and adolescents. These studies include analyses of large national data sets, conduct of randomized controlled trials in schools, child care, and community settings to examine how interventions to increase children’s intake of water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages impact child health, and the evaluation of policy efforts to improve the healthfulness of beverages offered in schools and community settings.

    Dr. Patel has a diverse funding portfolio ranging from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Healthy Eating Research Program, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Patel has presented her research to local, national and international audiences. She has also been recognized for her research with awards from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill School of Public Health.
