    Maheen Mausoof Adamson

    Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated) [VAPAHCS], Neurosurgery

    Bio Dr. Maheen Mausoof Adamson is the senior scientific research director for Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. She is also the clinical associate professor of Neurosurgery and Psychiatry and Behavioral sciences at Stanford University. Adamson completed her undergraduate degrees in neurobiology and women studies at the University of California, Irvine. She completed her Ph.D. in neuroscience from the University of Southern California and a postdoctoral fellowship in psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford School of Medicine.

    Dr. Adamson’s expertise and interests span employing translational neuroscience methodologies for diagnostic and therapeutic treatments (such as repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)) in patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and its related health problems. She has employed advanced structural and functional imaging techniques and biomarker assessments in Veteran, active military and civilian populations with brain injury. She has been a leader in identifying gender differences in brain injury, particularly in the Veteran population. She currently serves as PI or Co-I on several Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense funded grants.

    Dr. Adamson has authored numerous peer-reviewed publications on the cognitive and neural basis of Alzheimer’s disease and on a wide range of topics in TBI. She has received recognition in national and international settings. She is also intricately involved in mentoring research and clinical residents and fellows in PM&R, psychiatry and neurosurgery departments at Stanford. Her long-term goal is to integrate advanced treatment and diagnostics tailored to each patient's need into the standard-of-care to improve their daily function and reintegration into society.

    Gregory W. Albers, MD

    The Coyote Foundation Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our group’'s research focus is the acute treatment and prevention of cerebrovascular disorders. Our primary interest is the use of advanced imaging techniques to expand the treatment window for ischemic stroke. We are also conducting clinical studies of both neuroprotective and thrombolytic strategies for the treatment of acute stroke and investigating new antithrombotic strategies for stroke prevention.
