Scott G. Soltys, MD
Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My clinical and research interests focus on the development of new radiation techniques involving stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy for the treatment of malignant and benign tumors of the brain and spine, as well as functional disorders such as trigeminal neuralgia.
Hugh Brent Solvason PhD MD
Clinical Associate Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My work is focused on novel interventional treatment approaches for treatment resistant unipolar and bipolar depression. We are currently enrolling patients with treatment refractory bipolar depression for a radiosurgical neuromodulation study. We are awaiting the start of enrollment for a DBS in unipolar depression study.
I am also working with children in Sub Saharan Africa. Primarily I am focused on methods to assess well-being, and long term outcomes for these vulnerable children.
Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in the clinical investigation of cognitive stresses during younger adulthood that may give rise to frank intellectual impairment with older age. Examples may include specific kinds of chronically taken medications.
Frank Graham Sommer
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology), Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Studies include development and preliminary clinical evaluation of advanced techniques for ultrasonic imaging and tissue characterization. A number of studies are ongoing involving advanced techniques of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy with application to the GU tract.
Geoffrey Sonn, MD
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.
Justin L. Sonnenburg
Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in the basic principles that govern interactions within the intestinal microbiota and between the microbiota and the host. To pursue these aims, we colonize germ-free (gnotobiotic) mice with simplified, model microbial communities, apply systems approaches (e.g. functional genomics), and use genetic tools for the host and microbes to gain mechanistic insight into emergent properties of the host-microbial super-organism.
Irene Sonu, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Bio I am a gastroenterologist who specializes in complex motility disorders of the gastrointestinal tract such as achalasia, diffuse esophageal spasm, gastroparesis, pelvic floor dysfunction. I also specializes in patients with general GI disorders such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic constipation and diarrhea. I also specialize in interpreting esophageal and anorectal manometries, ph-impedance studies, breath tests, and capsule endoscopies.
