Seema Nagpal, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I'm a board certified neuro-oncologist who treats both primary brain tumors as well as metastatic disease to the brain and nervous system. My research concentrates on clinical trials for patients with late-stage central nervous system cancer. I have a special interest in leptomeningeal disease, a devastating complication of lung and breast cancers. I collaborate with Stanford scientists to detect this disease earlier, and with our breast and lung oncologists to improve outcomes for patients.
Valerio Napolioni, PhD
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Neurology and Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is focused on the genetic underpinnings of common complex neuropsychiatric disorders with an emphasis on evolutionary/adaptive effects of gene variants. Given the incredible complexity underlying human neurobehavioral traits, I strongly believe in the necessity of applying a multidisciplinary approach that may involve genetics, neuropsychiatry, ecology, immunology and sociology. Currently I?m working on X-chromosome wide association studies, aiming to get a better understanding of sex-specific differences in the susceptibility to neuropsychiatric conditions.
