Dr. John Magaña Morton
Associate Professor of Surgery (General Surgery) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My main research interests include the surgical management of the morbidly obese, evidence-based surgery, and surgical education. Prior training in public health, health administration, and surgery provide a strong foundation from which to pursue these goals.
The only effective and enduring treatment for morbid obesity is bariatric surgery. Like the previous public health epidemics of cancer and heart disease, surgery is the first responder to the obesity crisis.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests MR physics into tissue contrast mechanisms such as diffusion, perfusion, and functional imaging describes the research direction. Applications of cerebral stroke (brain attacks) and neurocognitive disorders are also being developed from these methods
Darius M. Moshfeghi, MD
Professor of Ophthalmology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Moshfeghi leads the Stanford University Network for Diagnosis of Retinopathy of Prematurity (SUNDROP network). The SUNDROP network utilizes RetCam II cameras to provide remote screening of retinopathy of prematurity at outlying neonatal intensive care units. Active sites include Dominican Hospital, Washington Hospital, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and O'Connor Hospital.

Heather E Moss, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am a clinician scientist with a background in engineering, epidemiology and neuro-ophthalmology. In my research, I combine tools from these disciplines with the goal of understanding and preventing vision loss from optic nerve diseases. My focus is on papilledema, the swelling of the optic nerve head due to elevation in intracranial pressure, which we are characterizing using electrophysiological and imaging techniques. Other areas of interest are peri-operative vision loss and optic neuritis.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Immunopathogenesis of chronic airways diseases of childhood, including cystic fibrosis, asthma, allergic aspergillosis and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Translational research: early clinical trials in airways disease of childhood, most notably CF, including gene, cytokine and drug therapy.
Sam P. Most, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests 1. Evidence-based medicine in Facial Plastic Surgery
The primary goal of this research program is to develop a higher standard of care for facial plastic surgery patients. One example of this is the evelopment of prospective studies that examine the efficacy of new or existing surgical techniques in facial plastic surgery. One clinical problem we have already begun to examine is nasal obstruction.
2. Examination of facial nerve injury and biological correlates of functional recovery.
