Casey H. Halpern, MD
Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are currently investigating the effects of deep brain stimulation in obesity using mouse models of human behavior. Many obese individuals exhibit behavioral disinhibition, a clinical feature of many neurologic and psychiatric conditions. We are dissecting the mesocorticolimbic circuit with novel techniques including optogenetics.
Assistant Professor (Research) of Neurosurgery and of Medicine (BMIR)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My current research focuses on understanding the genetic and environmental etiology of complex disease and developing and evaluating efficient screening strategies based on etiological understanding. The areas of my research interests include statistical genetics, molecular epidemiology, cancer screening, health policy modeling, and risk prediction modeling. I have developed various statistical methods to analyze high-dimensional data to identify genetic and environmental risk factors and their interactions for complex disease.
Omid R. Hariri
Clinical Instructor, Neurosurgery
Bio Omid R. Hariri, is a Clinical Instructor of Neurosurgery. He attended UCLA, where he obtained his BSc in Neurosciences and graduated with Summa Cum Laude. He pursued his research fellowship with Howard Hughes Medical Institution under the mentorship of Dr. Paul Micevych. He continued his graduate studies at UCLA, where he obtained his Masters in Neurobiology. He received his medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences.
Omid R. Hariri completed his neurological surgery residency at Riverside University Health System in Riverside, CA. Under the direct mentorship of his Chairman, Javed Siddiqi, M.D., Ph.D., he became the first fellow to the Board of Directors of California Association of Neurological Surgeons (CANS). He is currently pursuing his fellowship training in Complex Spine Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine.
Omid Hariri has authored multiple peer-reviewed publications in international journals. His research interests include Spinal Oncology and associated biomechanical instability.
Ciara Harraher, MD
Clinical Associate Professor, Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in medical education and I am an Associate in the Practice of Medicine and doctoring with CARE ( E4C) Program. I am also interested in surgical outcomes research and I am involved in clinical trials studying brain tumors and stroke. I have also presented internationally on issues related to improving diversity in Neurosurgery.
Odette Harris, MD, MPH
Professor of Neurosurgery at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Traumatic brain injury with a focus on epidemiology and outcomes.

Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Microsurgical treatment of tumors of the brain, spinal cord, pituitary gland and skull base;
Radiosurgery of tumors;
Molecular biology of brain tumors.
Melanie Hayden Gephart
Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio I am a brain tumor neurosurgeon, treating patients with malignant and benign tumors, including glioma, brain metastases, meningioma, vestibular schwannoma, and pituitary adenomas. Our lab seeks greater understanding of the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms driving tumorigenesis and disease progression in malignant brain tumors. We currently study the capacity of cellular and cell-free DNA to inform treatment choices in patients with brain tumors. We also use single cell and cell subtype-specific transcriptomics to identify and target infiltrating glioblastoma. We hope to identify potentially targetable genes crucial in tumorigenesis. Our laboratory is a unique and collaborative working environment, engaged in a dynamic research environment at Stanford. Our laboratory space lies at the heart of the Stanford campus between the core campus and the medical facilities, emblematic of the translational aspects of our work.
Jaimie Henderson, MD
John and Jene Blume - Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests encompass several areas of stereotactic and functional neurosurgery, including frameless stereotactic approaches for therapy delivery to deep brain nuclei; deformable patient-specific atlases for targeting brain structures; cortical physiology and its relationship to normal and pathological movement; neural prostheses; and the development of novel neuromodulatory techniques for the treatment of movement disorders, pain, and other neurological diseases.
Karen G. Hirsch, MD
Assistant Professor of Neurology and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Karen G. Hirsch cares for critically ill patients with neurologic disorders in the intensive care unit and for patients with cerebrovascular disease in the inpatient stroke unit. Dr. Hirsch's research focuses on novel imaging techniques such as functional brain imaging in patients with cardiac arrest and traumatic brain injury. She also studies methods of non-invasive measurement of cerebral blood flow, oxygenation, and cerebrovascular autoregulation and how these parameters might be targeted to improve outcome in patients with neurologic injury. In the outpatient clinic, she sees patients with head injury, stroke and other neurovascular diseases in addition to patients who have been discharged from the neurological intensive care unit.
