Simon John Christoph Soerensen
Graduate, Medicine, Urology
Bio I am a last year medical student joining the Department of Urology from Aarhus University, Denmark. My clinical areas of interest include cancer imaging, urologic oncologic outcomes research, prostate cancer, robotic urologic surgeries, and applied deep learning in healthcare. I am currently working on developing novel deep learning methods for segmenting the prostate before MRI-TRUS fusion biopsies as well as diagnosing prostate cancer on MRI based on zonal prostate anatomy.

Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Gynecology-Urogynecology) and, by courtesy, of Urology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is focused on the development and testing of novel minimally invasive treatment modalities for complex pelvic floor disorders.
Assistant Professor of Urology and, by courtesy, of Radiology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interest is in improving prostate cancer diagnosis through MRI and image-targeted prostate biopsy. In collaboration with radiologists at Stanford, we are working to define the optimal role of MRI in prostate cancer. We hope to improve cancer imaging to the point that some men with elevated PSA may safely avoid prostate biopsy. For those who need biopsy, we are evaluating novel MRI-US fusion targeted biopsy, a technique that greatly improves upon the conventional biopsy method.
Leslee L.Subak, MD
Katharine Dexter McCormick and Stanley McCormick Memorial Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Urology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on the association of weight and urinary incontinence (UI) in women and clinical trials to test strategies to improve outcomes in women’s genitourinary health. We have shown the independent association of weight and UI and the efficacy of weight loss to treat women with UI. I also conduct studies of epidemiology, economics and cost-effectiveness, and novel interventions for UI, sexual dysfunction, vaginal atrophy, pelvic organ prolapse and menopause symptoms.
Professor of Urology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We focus on understanding the molecular mechanism of transcription factors that govern the transformation of normal cells to a neoplastic state. We are especially interested in nuclear hormone action and its interactions with other signaling pathways in tumor development and progression.
Alan Eih Chih Thong
Clinical Assistant Professor, Urology
Bio Dr. Thong is a urologist specializing in urologic oncology. He has experience in all aspects of adult urology care, including endoscopic, robotic, and open surgery, and has a special interest in the treatment of prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular cancer. He has won numerous awards including the NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award, and has authored and co-authored publications on the treatment of urologic cancers.
