Ashley Rene Styczynski
Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Infectious Diseases
Bio Ashley Styczynski, MD, MPH, is an infectious disease fellow in the Division of Infectious Diseases & Geographic Medicine with research interests in epidemiology, global health, emerging infections, and antimicrobial resistance. She holds an MPH from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and an MD from University of Illinois at Chicago. Prior to coming to Stanford for her infectious disease fellowship, she spent two years as an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Officer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. During her time as an EIS officer, Ashley conducted outbreak investigations on Zika virus, vaccinia virus, and rabies. She is currently conducting research on perinatal transmission dynamics of antimicrobial resistant organisms and sustainable interventions to reduce transmission of infections within low-resource healthcare facilities.
Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Critical Care
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My clinical pharmacology research is focused on investigating the impact of dynamic organ function on drug disposition and designing dosing strategies based on mathematical models that account for these changes in order to optimize safe medication administration in critically ill children.
Research through the REVIVE Initiative for Resuscitation Excellence investigates the quality of resuscitation during cardiopulmonary arrest. Areas of focus include early identification during the no-flow state prior to CPR initiation and quality of CPR simulation education.
Leslee L.Subak, MD
Katharine Dexter McCormick and Stanley McCormick Memorial Professor
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.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Information transfer at synapses mediates information processing in brain, and is impaired in many brain diseases. Thomas Südhof is interested in how synapses are formed, how presynaptic terminals release neurotransmitters at synapses, and how synapses become dysfunctional in diseases such as autism or Alzheimer's disease. To address these questions, Südhof's laboratory employs approaches ranging from biophysical studies to the electrophysiological and behavioral analyses of mutant mice.
Associate Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Pervez Sultan is an Associate Professor of Obstetric Anesthesiology, at Stanford University School of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the University of Edinburgh and completed the majority of his anesthetic training in Edinburgh and London, within the United Kingdom. He was also previously an Obstetric Anesthesia Fellow at Stanford, after which he completed an MD (Res) research degree exploring ?Molecular mechanisms of perioperative lymphopenia.? Subsequently Dr. Sultan has practiced as an Attending at University College London Hospital with an Honorary Faculty position (Senior Lecturer) at University College London.
He is currently Chief Investigator for 3 funded multi-center studies and 1 funded single-center study within the United Kingdom and has multiple active International collaborative projects globally. His research interests include Obstetric Anesthesia, recovery following childbirth and peripartum immune function. He has published over 90 peer-reviewed manuscripts, book chapters and editorials. Dr. Sultan currently serves on the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology Research Committee, the International Outreach Committee in addition to SOAP Guideline Committees.

Yang Sun, MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in the role of inositol phosphatases in eye development and disease, using both animal models and human disease tissue. We are a translational laboratory seeking to understand the basic function of proteins as well as developing therapeutic strategies for clinical trials.
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.
Professor of Pediatrics at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My primary interests are in the area of neonatal nutrition and developmental gastroenterology. The use of parenteral nutrition in very low birth weight infants, and the introduction of early enteral feeding to stimulate gastrointestinal maturation are my specific areas of investigative endeavors.
