Steven K. Howard
Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory is active in the study of human performance of medical personnel. We are actively involved in teaching health care personnel the techniques of crisis resource management (CRM) using realistic simulation. Research on sleep deprivation and fatigue and the performance of health care personnel is also an active area of study.
Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Development and integration of X-ray, MRI and US imaging technologies for radiation therapy guidance; Design of synergistic approaches to radiation therapy delivery; Treatment planning optimization and modeling.
Robert W. Hsieh
Instructor, Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine
Bio Robert W. Hsieh, M.D. Ph.D. is a medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney (renal) cancer and testicular cancer. He completed his Hematology and Oncology fellowship training at Stanford University with a clinical focus on genitourinary cancers.
Dr. Hsieh is also involved in laboratory-based basic science research at Stanford's Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine and investigates the targeting of cancer stem cells to develop novel therapies for challenging cancers such as triple-negative breast cancer.
Bio Scott Hsieh works on several projects to improve CT scanner technology. His dissertation project was on the design of an adaptive x-ray filter that could control and personalize the incident x-ray radiation on the patient, to reduce unnecessary radiation and optimize image quality. Other projects include parameter tradeoffs in upcoming photon counting detectors, the introduction of a new class of anti-scatter grids, and analyses of new reconstruction algorithms.
