Associate Professor of Genetics and, by courtesy, of Applied Physics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab focuses on developing methods to probe both the structure and function of molecules encoded by the genome, as well as the physical compaction and folding of the genome itself. Our efforts are split between building new tools to leverage the power of high-throughput sequencing technologies and cutting-edge optical microscopies, and bringing these technologies to bear against basic biological questions by linking DNA sequence, structure, and function.
Michael Greicius, MD, MPH
Associate Professor of Neurology and, by courtesy, of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests As the Medical Director of the Stanford Center for Memory Disorders and Principal Investigator of the Stanford Extreme Phenotypes in Alzheimer's Disease (StEP AD) Cohort, Dr. Greicius' research focuses on elucidating the neurobiologic underpinnings of AD. His lab combines cutting edge brain imaging, "deep" phenotyping, and whole-genome sequencing of human subjects to identify novel pathways involved in AD pathogenesis. The goal of his work is to develop effective treatment for AD patients.
Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in identifying the genes leading to Hearing and Vestibular impairments, and understanding their function at the molecular level.
We have a special focus on how the Hair Cells are able to detect mechanical stimulation.

Eric R. Gross
Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory studies cellular stress and how common genetic variants may affect the response to cellular stress. One primary focus of the laboratory is on studying aldehyde production, aldehyde metabolism, and the receptors that aldehydes modulate.
Accumulation of aldehydes has been considered a mechanism for many post-operative complications that people experience during surgery- whether it be reperfusion injury, post-operative pain, cognitive dysfunction, or nausea.
Professor of Psychology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in emotion and emotion regulation. My research employs behavioral, physiological, and brain measures to examine emotion-related personality processes and individual differences. My current interests include emotion coherence, specific emotion regulation strategies (reappraisal, suppression), automatic emotion regulation, and social anxiety.
