John R. Adler, Jr.
The Dorothy and Thye King Chan Professor in Neurosurgery, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The development and implementation of computerized, image-guided surgical tools to be used during minimally invasive brain operations. The clinical outcome of new technologies, and in particular the application of radiosurgery, for the treatment of brain tumors. The creation of new radiosurgical techniques for a wide array of brain and spine disorders.
Gregory W. Albers
The Coyote Foundation Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our groups research focus is the acute treatment and prevention of cerebrovascular disorders. Our primary interest is the use of diffusion- and perfusion-weighted MRI 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.
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Interested in Stem Cell Research and brain tumors biology
Social Science Research Asst, Neurosurgery
Current Role at Stanford Research Assistant, Neurosurgery
Clinical Neurotechnologist for the BrainGate2 clinical trials
John E. Cahill Family Professor, Professor of Neurology and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focus is human motor control and brain pathophysiology in movement disorders. Our overall goal is to understand the role of the basal ganglia electrical activity in the pathogenesis of movement disorders. We have developed novel computerized technology to measure fine, limb and postural movement. With these we are measuring local field potentials in basal ganglia nuclei in patients with Parkinson's disease and dystonian and correlating brain signalling with motor behavior.
Marion S. Buckwalter
Assistant Professor of Neurology and of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goal of the Buckwalter Lab is to improve how people recover after a stroke. We use basic research to understand the cells, proteins, and genes that lead to successful recovery of function, and also how complications develop that impact quality of life after stroke. Ongoing projects are focused on understanding how inflammatory responses are regulated after a stroke and how to make recovery faster and better after stroke.
Terry Burns MD, PhD
Postdoctoral Medical fellow, Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests include understanding the behavior of endogenous and transplanted stem cells in the healthy and diseased brain, with a goal of developing translational neuroregenerative therapies. My current work in the lab of Theo Palmer includes efforts to reactivate neurogenesis after brain irradiation for treatment of brain tumors. Specifically, our current projects include profiling the cellular and transcriptional changes occurring after brain irradiation, testing candidate strategies to overcome these changes, and developing strategies to reactivate or replace dysfunctional neural stem cells in the irradiated neurogenic niche.
Pak H. Chan
The James R. Doty Professor in Neurosurgery and Neurosciences and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurology and Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Neuronal death after cerebral ischemia and neural injury using transgenic strategy
Steven D. Chang, MD, the Robert C. and Jeannette Powell Professor
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.
