  • Jack Tzu-Chieh Wang

    Jack Tzu-Chieh Wang

    Instructor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My primary research focus is in understanding the molecular mechanisms of axonal degeneration and subsequent failure of axonal regeneration in the CNS. I have identified a critical cellular pathway mediating axonal degeneration following neurological injuries. Modulating this pathway therefore presents a novel therapeutic target to protect vulnerable nerve fibers and enhance functional recovery in a multitude of CNS diseases.

  • Kevin Wilkins

    Kevin Wilkins

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    Bio Kevin obtained a PhD in Neuroscience from Northwestern University while working in the Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences Department and a BS/BA in Psychology and English from Boston College. His dissertation research focused on understanding the neural mechanisms underlying upper extremity impairments in individuals with chronic stroke and subsequent motor improvements following novel interventions. His postdoctoral work at Stanford with Dr. Helen Bronte-Stewart focuses on the neural features associated with gait impairment in individuals with Parkinson's disease using a combination of structural imaging, neurophysiology, and kinematic analysis. He was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship for Basic Scientists from the Parkinson's Foundation to investigate the cognitive correlates of gait impairment in Parkinson's disease.

He completed his PostDoctoral Fellowship in Headache Medicine at the Stanford Headache Program. He is Awardee of several prestigious Fellowships, namely, the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) John G. Nicholls 2012, International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) Scan|Design Foundation 2010, European Neurological Society (ENS) 2011, and International Headache Society (IHS) 2014. He also has vested interest and expertise in Digital Health as shown by his recent developments of clinically-validated self-management apps for neuropathy (CHANT) and migraine. He has strong track record of publishing many peer-reviewed first-authored articles in several high impact medical journals including The Lancet Oncology, Neurology, Pain, Journal of Neurology, Cephalalgia, and Journal of Neurological Sciences. He has been awarded the 2016 Emerging Leader in Global Health Innovation Award, Consortium of Universities for Global Health from Drs. Anvar and Pari Velji Family Foundation based on his leading role in the development, validation, and field-testing of a clinical instrument for the diagnosis of sensory neuropathy and neuropathic pain (Clinical HIV-Associated Neuropathy Tool or CHANT (Woldeamanuel et al., 2016)). He currently serves as the academic editor for Frontiers in Neurology, BMC Neurology, and BioMed Research International. He is an invited editorial board member for more than 20 peer-reviewed scientific headache, psychiatry, neurological and medical journals. He has received the Publons Peer Review Award for 2017-18 as the Top 1% Reviewer on Publons Global Reviewers Database. He is ranked 3rd among headache and migraine experts from Stanford (see Expertscape rankings at https://expertscape.com/ex/migraine+headache/i/stanford_university).
