Sharon E. Williams PhD
Clinical Associate Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Williams work focuses primarily on cognitive and emotional recovery of children who have been medically compromised. With improved medical treatment and increased survival rates comes the need to better understand the challenges that patients face following a life threatening illness or injury. Advances in medical technology have opened the door to a better understanding of cognitive development and the recovery or deterioration process over time. Currently, Dr. Williams is examining the neuropsychological impact of treatment for children who have undergone a bone marrow transplant (BMT). The existence of cognitive deficits in this population intellectual and academic functioning, memory impairment, visual motor difficulties, problems with attention, concentration and executive functioning - has been in question over the years with research supporting both perspectives. Clinical experience and patient report, however, support the hypothesis that cognitive difficulties exist. New technologies such as imaging, used in concert with established neuropsychological measurement, offer great promise in expanding our understanding of the impact of these treatments and ultimately, improving outcome. Dr. Williams is conducting a NIH funded study examining neuropsychological functioning, imaging and genetic data. Additionally, Dr. Williams has studied children with traumatic brain injuries and continues to see these children in her clinical practice.
Juergen K. Willmann, M.D.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Willmann lab focuses on the development and clinical translation of novel molecular and functional imaging strategies with special focus on abdominal and pelvic diseases.
Professor of Pediatrics (Endocrinology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests cover a number of areas in Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes. I am PI of the Stanford Center for the NIH-funded Type-1 Diabetes TrialNet group. TrialNet conducts clinical trials directed at preventing or delaying the onset of Type 1 diabetes. I am an investigator in DirecNet, another NIH-funded study group, which is devoted to evaluating glucose sensors and the role of technology on the management of diabetes.
Kitchener D. Wilson
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interest in cardiovascular precision medicine has two aims: (1) merging next generation sequencing (NGS) with iPS cell models in order to discover novel molecules that regulate cardiac development, disease, and drug response, and (2) developing multi-gene NGS assays for elucidating the DNA mutations that underlie cardiomyopathies, channelopathies, congenital heart disease, and sudden cardiac death.
Jeffrey J. Wine
Benjamin Scott Crocker Professor of Human Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The study of cystic fibrosis, especially the role of airway submucosal glands in cystic fibrosis airway disease.
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - General Medical Disciplines
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am the Director and qualitative lead for the evaluation of the Cancer Transformation Initiative, a 5-year project to transform the quality of care for cancer patients seen and treated at the Stanford Cancer Institute. Additionally, I am involved in and have great interest in studies and their evaluation intended to improve the quality of patient care particularly those related to cancer care, primary care, and the points of intersection between primary and specialty care.
