    Sylvia K. Plevritis, PhD

    Professor of Biomedical Data Science and of Radiology (Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics at Stanford)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research program focuses on computational modeling of cancer biology and cancer outcomes. My laboratory develops stochastic models of the natural history of cancer based on clinical research data. We estimate population-level outcomes under differing screening and treatment interventions. We also analyze genomic and proteomic cancer data in order to identify molecular networks that are perturbed in cancer initiation and progression and relate these perturbations to patient outcomes.

  • Mahla Poudineh

    Mahla Poudineh

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiology

    Bio Mahla Poudineh received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering, both from the University of Tehran, Iran in 2010 and 2012, respectively. She then completed a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering (with Biomedical Engineering focus) at the University of Toronto in 2016. Before joining Stanford as a postdoctoral fellow, she completed a one-year postdoctoral training at the University of Toronto, Department of Pharmaceutical Science. Her research interests include design and implementation of micro- and nano-fabrication techniques for biomedical engineering applications such as phenotypic profiling of rare cancer cells and real-time monitoring for infectious disease diagnosis.

  • Peter Poullos

    Peter Poullos

    Clinical Associate Professor, Radiology

    Bio Dr. Poullos is a native of Stockton California. He attended Santa Clara University where he earned his BS in Biology. He received his M.D. degree at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, after which he did Internal Medicine residency at the University of California-San Francisco, finishing in 2002. He stayed at UCSF as a Gastroenterology fellow until 2004. However, after a spinal cord injury, he decided to retrain in Radiology. He did his Radiology residency at Stanford University, where he also completed a fellowship In Body Imaging in 2009. Dr. Poullos is now faculty in both the departments of Radiology and Gastroenterology and Hepatology. His clinical practice is at the Stanford University Medical Center, where he interprets CT, MRI, and ultrasound primarily of the abdomen and pelvis. His interests include radiology of the acute abdomen, hepatobiliary imaging, and colorectal cancer screening.

    Dr. Poullos is Founder and Executive Director of the Stanford Medicine Abilities Coalition (SMAC), a group composed of people with disabilities and their allies at Stanford Medicine. He is also a member of the Radiology Department Diversity Committee, the School of Medicine Faculty Senate Subcommittee on Diversity, and the School of Medicine Diversity Cabinet.

  • Shirin Pourashraf

    Shirin Pourashraf

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am working on TOF-PET Imaging; specifically exploring, and designing instrumentation, and data acquisition electronics to improve time-of-flight resolution in PET detectors.
