Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Murovic is a member of the Stanford University Medical Center (SUMC) CyberKnife Radiosurgery (CK RS) Treatment Center at the Stanford Cancer Center and at Blake Wilbur. She helps to co-ordinate the patients' CK RS treatments. She is also Co-Protocol Director of a new Stanford Cancer Center trial which is evaluating the outcomes of patients with 1-3 versus 4 or more brain tumor metastases after treatment with CK RS. She is currently preparing a chapter on the CK RS treatment of brain tumor metastases. In the Neurosurgery Spine laboratory she has been studying the incidence of spinal “adjacent segment disease” after traditional cervical fusions.
Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital and at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Murphy's major interests are in noninvasive cardiology and clinical pediatric and adult congenital cardiac disease. These clinical interests range from imaging of complex cardiac disease in the fetus and newborn to care of the adult with congenital heart disease. He also coordinates the Marfan clinic at LPCH. He is the director of the Adult Congenital Cardiac Clinic at Stanford University Medical Center.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Pharmacogenetics of mood disorders and nicotine addiction. Microglial neurotoxicity and neuroprotection in Alzheimer's disease. Genome wide expression analysis of mouse models for Alzheimer's disease.
Kelly P. Murphy, MD
Clinical Associate Professor, Emergency Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Global Health: rural healthcare delivery systems and grassroots health education.
Medical Development: collaborating with an international team of NGOs to rebuild the national healthcare system in Papua New Guinea.
Professor of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research) and of Biomedical Data Science
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory investigates the use of distributed, component-based software architectures to build intelligent computer systems. Emphasis is on knowledge modeling and knowledge reuse. Our goals are to enhance methodologies that faculitate building and maintaining electronic knowledge bases that can drive useful biomedical computer systems. Current work concentrates on automation of clinical practice guidelines and clinical-trial protocols, and surveillance for potential episodes of bioterrorism.
Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hearing is one of the most sensitive functions controlled by thyroid hormone (TH). TH is required for the timely coordination of a complex set of differentiation events in the maturing cochlea. Hypothyroidism retards the differentiation of the cochlea, including synaptogenesis, neurogenesis and myelinogenesis. The mechanisms that prompt the progression of these developmental events are poorly understood. Our preliminary data shows that many genes are differentially regulated by thyroid hormone in the cochlea.
Identifying which of these genes play important roles in cochlear hair cell innervation and synapse formation will further basic understanding about how the auditory system develops. In addition, knowledge of these genes could help devise strategies for stimulating the innervation of newly generated hair cells. To establish or restore hearing, it is vital that newly formed hair cells be connected functionally to the brain. We expect that our research will contribute to this important clinical/translational research effort by identifying genes involved in stimulating innervation and synapse formation.
