Clinical Instructor, Medicine - Immunology & Rheumatology
Bio My clinical and research interests lie in Integrative Rheumatology, healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole patient, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies, including those outside the realm of allopathic medicine. Specifically, I am interested in exploring the impact of diet/nutrition/botanicals on inflammation as it pertains to rheumatic diseases such as gout, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriatic arthritis and other autoimmune conditions, as well as studying the impact of other lifestyle approaches such as mindful meditation, sleep, yoga, stress reduction, etc. on disease burden and quality of life of patients with rheumatic diseases.
Nigam H. Shah, MBBS, PhD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research) and of Biomedical Data Science
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research group studies ontology-based approaches to annotate, index, integrate and analyze unstructured information available in biomedicine for the purpose of enabling data-driven analytics in medicine and health care.
Rajesh Shah, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiology
Bio I am an interventional radiologist with a particular interest in interventional oncology. I perform a wide range of procedures including ablations of the lung, liver, kidney, bone, and other areas in the body, chemoembolization, embolization, and radioembolization of tumors, biopsies, drainages, and interventions on both the venous and arterial sides. I was the first physician to perform SIR-spheres radioembolization for metastatic tumors to the liver within the VA hospital system, and have been recognized for my teaching of trainees. I perform research in areas of the application of big data to medicine as well as treatment of lung and liver cancers.

Paul Sharek MD, MPH
Professor of Pediatrics (General Pediatrics) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research interests centered on hospital based quality of care improvement, and in particular pediatric patient safety. Areas of recent interest include developing practical tools to more accurately identify adverse medical events and to establish national rates of these adverse events. Additional areas of interest focus on developing the processes and systems to decrease the frequency of adverse drug events and adverse medical events at Children's hospitals in North America
