Reid Weaver Dennis Professor
Bio Interests include medical imaging generally, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in particular. Current efforts are focused on medical applications of MRI where real-time interactive imaging is important. Two examples are cardiac imaging, and the interactive guidance of interventional procedures. Specific interests include rapid methods for the excitation and acquisition of the MR signal, and the reconstruction of images from the data acquired using these approaches.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are investigating and developing, and applying focused ultrasound in neuromodulation, blood brain barrier opening, and ablation for both neuro and body applications.
Christopher K. Payne, MD
Professor of Urology at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Obstetric Fistula Projects:
1. Preoperative ultrasound evaluation to detect ureteric involvement in vesicovaginal fistulas
2. Patient narrative study to identify key medical, social and economic factors that lead to fistula formation
3. Study of urinary continence after fistula repair
Pelvic pain: investigation into role of pelvic floor in chronic pelvic pain
Donna Peehl, PhD
Professor (Research) of Urology, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on the molecular and cellular biology of the human prostate. Developing realistic experimental models is a major goal, and primary cultures of prostatic epithelial and stromal cells are my main model system. Our discoveries are relevant to prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant prostatic diseases.
Susy Yuan-Huey Hung Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Molecular mechanisms of targeted therapy resistance in breast and other cancers
Boston Scientific Applied Biomedical Engineering Professor and Professor of Radiology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Broadly, Dr. Pelc is interested in the physics, engineering and mathematics of medical imaging, especially computed tomography, digital x-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, and hybrid multimodality systems. His current research is concentrated in the development of computed tomography systems with higher image quality and dose efficiency, in the characterization of system performance, and in the development and validation of new clinical applications.
VJ Periyakoil, Geriatrics, Hospice & Palliative Medicine
Associate Professor of Medicine (Primary Care and Population Health) and, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on the intersection of biological, psychosocial and cultural aspects of care of persons with chronic and serious illnesses including dementia.
Emma Pfeiffer Merner Professor in the Medical Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The major focuses of our research is to understand the molecular basis of inherited Parkinson's Disease (PD) and to elucidate the molecular mechanisms by which proteins and cholesterol are transported between specific membrane compartments. We focus on the LRRK2 kinase that is inappropriately activated in PD and how it phosphorylates Rab GTPases, blocking the formation of primary cilia in culture and specific regions of the brain.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical Interests: general oncology, head and neck cancer Research Interests: chemoprevention trials and combined modality approaches to head and neck cancer
Associate Professor (Research) of Radiology (Cancer Early Detection-Canary Center)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Pitteri laboratory is focused on the discovery and validation of proteins that can be used as molecular indicators of risk, diagnosis, progression, and recurrence of cancer. Proteomic technologies, predominantly mass spectrometry, are used to identify proteins in the blood that are differentially regulated and/or post-translationally modified with disease state. Using human plasma samples, tumor tissue, cancer cell lines, and genetically engineered mouse models, the origins of these proteins are being investigated. A major goal of this research is to define novel molecular signatures for breast and ovarian cancers, including particular sub-types of these diseases. This laboratory is also focused on the identification of proteins with expression restricted to the surface of cancer cells which can be used as novel targets for molecular imaging technologies.
