Dwight and Vera Dunlevie Professor in Pediatric Cardiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research program seeks to identify the cellular and molecular programs regulating vascular and lung development, through the use of cultured cells and tissues and mouse and rat models. We then determine how these programs are perturbed by genetic abnormalities or injurious processes associated with disease, focusing on pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a fatal complication in children with heart defects, and a condition of unknown etiology primarily in young women.
Instructor, Pediatrics - Hematology & Oncology
Bio Sneha Ramakrishna, M.D., is an Instructor of Pediatrics in the Division of Hematology and Oncology, working with Dr Crystal Mackall. Dr. Ramakrishna obtained her B. A. from the University of Chicago and her M.D. from the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University. She completed her residency training in Pediatrics at the Children?s Hospital of Philadelphia and her fellowship in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the Johns Hopkins/National Cancer Institute combined program. Her research focuses on identifying mechanisms of relapse in patients following chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapies and optimizing both CAR design and tumor sensitivity to improve long-term success of CAR T cell therapies.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Wearable senors, unobtrusive vital sign monitoring, natural language processing/text mining
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Critical Care
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests reside in the field of Neurocritical Care Medicine. My research focus has included inflammation following traumatic brain injury, outcome prediction after cardiac arrest, and neuro-monitoring in the pediatric intensive care setting. These interests are integrated clinically to focus on the merging of specialized neurologic monitoring and care with prognostic efforts in critically ill patients.
Caroline E. Rassbach
Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Medical education including learner assessment, program development and mentoring and coaching in medicine.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Children with medical complexity, pain and symptom management, palliative care
Professor of Pediatrics (Neonatology) at Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Neonatology, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, nitric oxide therapy, mechanisms of bilirubin toxicity and brain injury, non-invasive biotechnologies to study cellular and organ metabolism.
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Pulmonary) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on detection of early and progressive Cystic fibrosis (CF) structural lung disease by utilizing chest CT imaging and CT post-processing methodology. Current research efforts involve utilization of low dose infant & children CT imaging protocols and quantitative airway and air trapping algorithms to evaluate early and progressive CF disease.
The Irving Schulman, M.D. Endowed Professor in Child Health, Professor of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center) and, by courtesy, of Epidemiology and Population Health
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Robinson originated the solution-oriented research paradigm and directs the Stanford Solutions Science Lab. He is known for his pioneering obesity prevention and treatment research, including the concept of stealth interventions. His research applies social cognitive models of behavior change to behavioral, social, environmental and policy interventions for children and families in real world settings, making the results relevant for informing clinical and public health practice and policy.
Associate Professor (Teaching) of Pediatrics (General Pediatrics)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Current program of teaching and research integrates: 1) health disparities and social epidemiology, within the broader area of public health, and 2) program evaluation, as a synthesis of theory and methods applied to the evaluation of health and social programs.
