Adam S Miner Psy.D.
Instructor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Bio Dr. Miner is an AI psychologist, who uses experimental and observational studies to improve the ability to conversational artificial intelligence (AI) to recognize and respond to health issues. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford's Clinical Excellence Research Center (CERC) before joining the Department of Psychiatry as an Instructor and being awarded a Mentored Career Development Award (KL2) through Spectrum and the NIH.
Lloyd B. Minor, MD
The Carl and Elizabeth Naumann Professorship for the Dean of the School of Medicine, Professor of Otolaryngology?Head & Neck Surgery and, by courtesy, of Neurobiology and Bioengineering
Bio Lloyd B. Minor, MD, is a scientist, surgeon, and academic leader. He is the Carl and Elizabeth Naumann Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine, a position he has held since December 2012.
As dean, Dr. Minor plays an integral role in setting strategy for the clinical enterprise of Stanford Medicine, an academic medical center that includes the Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care, and Stanford Children?s Health and Lucile Packard Children?s Hospital Stanford. He also oversees the quality of Stanford Medicine?s physician practices and growing clinical networks.
With Dr. Minor?s leadership, Stanford Medicine has established a strategic vision to lead the biomedical revolution in Precision Health. The next generation of health care, Precision Health is focused on keeping people healthy and providing care that is tailored to individual variations. It?s predictive, proactive, preemptive, personalized, and patient-centered.
An advocate for innovation, Dr. Minor has provided significant support for fundamental science and for clinical and translational research at Stanford. Through bold initiatives in medical education and increased support for PhD students, Dr. Minor is committed to inspiring and training future leaders.
Among other accomplishments Dr. Minor has led the development and implementation of an innovative model for cancer research and patient care delivery at Stanford Medicine and has launched an initiative in biomedical data science to harness the power of big data and create a learning health care system. Committed to diversity, he has increased student financial aid and expanded faculty leadership opportunities.
Before coming to Stanford, Dr. Minor was provost and senior vice president for academic affairs of The Johns Hopkins University. During his time as provost, Dr. Minor launched many university-wide initiatives such as the Gateway Sciences Initiative to support pedagogical innovation, and the Doctor of Philosophy Board to promote excellence in PhD education. He worked with others around the university and health system to coordinate the Individualized Health Initiative, which aimed to use genetic information to transform health care.
Prior to his appointment as provost in 2009, Dr. Minor served as the Andelot Professor and director (chair) of the Department of Otolaryngology?Head and Neck Surgery in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and otolaryngologist-in-chief of The Johns Hopkins Hospital. During his six-year tenure, he expanded annual research funding by more than half and increased clinical activity by more than 30 percent, while strengthening teaching efforts and student training.
With more than 140 published articles and chapters, Dr. Minor is an expert in balance and inner ear disorders. Through neurophysiological investigations of eye movements and neuronal pathways, his work has identified adaptive mechanisms responsible for compensation to vestibular injury in a model system for studies of motor learning (the vestibulo-ocular reflex). The synergies between this basic research and clinical studies have led to improved methods for the diagnosis and treatment of balance disorders. In recognition of his work in refining a treatment for Ménière?s disease, Dr. Minor received the Prosper Ménière Society?s gold medal in 2010.
In the medical community, Dr. Minor is perhaps best known for his discovery of superior canal dehiscence syndrome, a debilitating disorder characterized by sound- or pressure-induced dizziness. In 1998 Dr. Minor and colleagues published a description of the clinical manifestations of the syndrome and related its cause to an opening (dehiscence) in the bone covering the superior canal. He subsequently developed a surgical procedure that corrects the problem and alleviates symptoms.
In 2012, Dr. Minor was elected to the National Academy of Medicine, formerly the Institute of Medicine.
Tsuyoshi Mitarai, MD
Clinical Associate Professor, Emergency Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Critical Care, optimal resource allocations for inpatient care
Beverly S. Mitchell, M.D.
George E. Becker Professor in Medicine and Professor, by courtesy, of Chemical and Systems Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Beverly Mitchell's research relates to the development of new therapies for hematologic malignancies, including leukemias and myelodsyplastic syndromes. She is interested in preclinical proof of principle studies on mechanisms inducing cell death and on metabolic targets involving nucleic acid biosynthesis in malignant cells. She is also interested in the translation of these studies into clinical trials.
R. Scott Mitchell
Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research Interests: Disease of the aorta, congenital and acquired. Treatment of aortic pathology, including development of stent graft systems. Patterns of disease in patients treated with mediastinal radiation. Valvular heart disease, especially aortopathy associated with congenital bicuspid aortic valve.
Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on the biology and pathogenesis of cytomegalovirus (CMV), an opportunistic pathogen that causes significant disease worldwide. We developed global approaches and produced key insights into the areas of CMV gene regulation, DNA replication and packaging, maturation, impact on the host cell, disease pathogenesis, latency and reactivation, host cell signaling and chemokine system. These diverse findings address key aspects of the virus-host interaction.
The George D. Smith Professor in Translational Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Two areas: 1. Using rationally-designed peptide inhibitors to study protein-protein interactions in cell signaling. Focus: protein kinase C in heart and large GTPases regulating mitochondrial dynamics in neurodegdenration. 2. Using small molecules (identified in a high throughput screens and synthetic chemistry) as activators and inhibitors of aldehyde dehydrogenases, a family of detoxifying enzymes, and glucose-6-phoshate dehydrogenase, in normal cells and in models of human diseases.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
Bio I was born, raised, and trained in Nashik, India where I completed my formal Medical Education before moving to New York City where I completed my residency in Internal Medicine at New York Downtown Hospital in New York, NY. My interests are in preventative medicne, health and wellness, occupational and environmental safety. In Stanford's Occupational Health Department, I practice clinical occupational medicine while working toward identifying health and safety issues within our enviroment to prevent further injury and illness to our employees.
David G. Mohler, MD
Clinical Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Mohler is involved in gene expression in sarcomas, and innovative anatomy-preserving surgical management of low grade chondrosarcomas.
Arash Momeni, MD
Assistant Professor of Surgery (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Momeni's research focuses on clinical outcomes after microsurgical reconstruction, with a particular emphasis on modifiable risk factors that contribute to the development of VTE.
Denise M. Monack
Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The primary focus of my research is to understand the genetic and molecular mechanisms of intracellular bacterial pathogenesis. We use several model systems to study complex host-pathogen interactions in the gut and in immune cells such as macrophages and dendritic cells. Ultimately we would like to understand how Salmonella persists within certain hosts for years in the face of a robust immune response.
