Sapp Family Provostial Professor, David Starr Jordan Director, Stanford Bio-X and Professor of Biology and of Neurobiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goal of research in the Shatz Laboratory is to discover how brain circuits are tuned up by experience during critical periods of development both before and after birth by elucidating cellular and molecular mechanisms that transform early fetal and neonatal brain circuits into mature connections. To discover mechanistic underpinnings of circuit tuning, the lab has conducted functional screens for genes regulated by neural activity and studied their function for vision, learning and memory.
Gary M. Shaw
Professor (Research) of Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Primary research interests include 1) epidemiology of birth defects, 2) gene-environment approaches to perinatal outcomes, and 3) nutrition and reproductive outcomes.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - General Medical Disciplines
Bio Dr. Jonathan Shaw received a B.A. in Philosophy from Yale University in 1999 and an MD from Harvard Medical School in 2006. While completing his internship and residency in family medicine at the Oregon Health and Science University from 2006-2009, he obtained additional training as a visiting scholar in Mbabane, Swaziland via the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative. He has also had experience providing maternal and infant care in rural Guatemala. After completing residency he has practiced in community health settings, serving primarily Latino immigrant populations, both in Oregon and now East Palo Alto. He moved to the Bay Area in 2011, joining Stanford's Center for Primary Care & Outcomes Research / VA Palo Alto, as a Health Services Research Fellow. His work and evaluation efforts during fellowship included homeless veterans outreach, and leading an interdisciplinary team (ImPACT) working to improve care coordination for the VA Palo Alto's most medically complex veterans. His research interests include psycho-social determinants of health, women's health, the impact of health policies on vulnerable and underserved populations, and research to improve primary care delivery to these groups.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Obstetrics & Gynecology
Bio Kate Shaw is a northern California native and completed college at UC Davis with a degree in Nutrition Science. She moved to San Diego where she worked in BioTech until matriculating to medical school at Albany Medical College in Albany NY, where she got her medical degree. She then undertook and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Oregon Health & Science University before coming back to California for a fellowship in Family Planning at Stanford. As a Clinical Assistant Professor she enjoys teaching residents and medical students and seeing patients in Gynecology clinic. She also performs gynecologic surgery and works on Labor & Delivery. Dr. Shaw acts as the Associate Residency Program Director for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Stanford and serves as the Medical Director for Ambulatory Gynecology at Stanford.

Javaid I. Sheikh
Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on studying phenomenology, vulnerability factors, and psychiatric and medical comorbidity of panic disorder in old age, as well as treatment responses to medication in elders with panic disorder. I am presently involved in establishing and extending our preliminary finding that Late-Onset Panic Disorder (LOPD) (onset at or after age 55) is a phenomenologically distinct syndrome from Early-Onset Panic Disorder (EOPD).

Professor of Biology and of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The connectivity of a neuron (its unique constellation of synaptic inputs and outputs) is essential for its function. Neuronal connections are made with exquisite accuracy between specific types of neurons. How each neuron finds its synaptic partners has been a central question in developmental neurobiology. We utilize the relatively simple nervous system of nematode C. elegans, to search for molecules that can specify synaptic connections and understand the molecular mechanisms of synaptic as

Professor of Electrical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Neurobiology and of Bioengineering
Bio Our group (Neural Prosthetic Systems Laboratory, NPSL; directed by Prof. Shenoy) conducts neuroscience, neuroengineering, and translational research to better understand how the brain controls movement, and to design medical systems to assist people with movement disabilities. Our neuroscience research investigates the neural basis of movement preparation and generation using a combination of electro-/opto-physiological, behavioral, computational and theoretical techniques. Our neuroengineering research investigates the design of high-performance and robust neural prostheses. Neural prostheses are also known as brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) and brain-machine interfaces (BMIs). These systems translate neural activity from the brain into control signals for prosthetic devices, which can assist people with paralysis by restoring lost motor functions. Our translational research, including an FDA pilot clinical trial termed BrainGate2, are conducted as part of the our Neural Prosthetic Translational Laboratory (NPTL; co-directed by Profs. Shenoy & Henderson).
Yelizaveta Sher, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Bio Dr. Sher received her BA from UC Berkeley and MD from Washington University in St. Louis. She completed Residency in Psychiatry and Fellowship in Psychosomatic Medicine at Stanford University Medical Center. She has been a part of Psychosomatic Medicine Faculty at Stanford since 2013. Her areas of clinical and research interests include psychiatric comorbidities in patients with pulmonary disorders. In particular, she specializes in mental health of patients with cystic fibrosis as well as lung and heart transplant patients. She consults on patients hospitalized on medical and surgical units as well as sees patients in outpatient clinics. She serves as a Mental Health Coordinator for the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Clinic.
