    Veronica E. Santini, MD

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    Bio Dr. Santini received her Bachelor?s of Science in Chemistry at the University of Miami before traveling to Boston to complete a Master?s of Arts and her Medical Doctorate Degree at Boston University, School of Medicine. She continued her training there as a Resident in Neurology, becoming chief resident in her final year, as well as her fellowship in Movement Disorders under Dr. Saint Hilaire.

    Dr. Santini is a board-certified neurologist and Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology at Stanford University specializing in the diagnosis and management of movement disorders including Parkinson's disease and atypical parkinsonism, Huntington's disease, dystonia, tic disorder, tremor, & ataxia. Dr. Santini also has a special interest in disorders of the autonomic nervous system which is the primary focus of her research. She takes a holistic approach to patient care and hope to integrate conservative and alternative therapies where appropriate. She is also proficient in the use of DBS and Botox.

    Dr. Santini is passionate about medical student and resident education and has taken multiple leadership roles in these areas. She was the first fellow to take on the role of Assistant clerkship director for the medical student Neurology clerkship at Boston University, School of Medicine and has continued in this role at Stanford University. She has mentored over 30 medical students, residents, and fellows and has a keen eye for curriculum development and novel student centered initiatives.

    Dr. Santini also is enthusiastic about global health and started an initiative to bring multidisciplinary teams of attendings, trainees, nurses, physical therapists, and pharmacists to travel to Haiti and provide much needed neurologic care. She was recently appointed an ambassador to the St. Luke Foundation in Port-au-Prince and hopes to continue working nationally with other neurologists to bring more continuous neurologic care to underserved areas and expand her focus to Africa and South America.

  • Jessica Schrouff

    Jessica Schrouff

    Postdoctoral Research fellow, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Jessica's research is aimed at investigating how the brain can maintain and store new information. Her project studies the three phases of human episodic memory: (1) the encoding, which is the processing of incoming information, (2) the consolidation, during which a permanent record of that information is created and maintained, (3) the retrieval, which consists in retrieving the information on purpose. To this end, she will develop novel machine learning approaches.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My clinical interests involve inpatient and outpatient care of patients with neurovascular diseases, mostly ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. I have a particular interest in cervical artery dissection, non-atherosclerotic vasculopathies, and stroke in the young.

  • Sharon Sha, MD, MS

    Sharon Sha, MD, MS

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    Bio Dr. Sha received her Bachelor?s degrees in Cognitive Science and Molecular Cell Biology emphasizing in Neurobiology from UC Berkeley. She went on to obtain a Master?s degree in Physiology and MD from Georgetown University. She trained in Neurology at UCLA and Stanford University and completed a clinical and research fellowship in behavioral neurology at UCSF where she focused on identifying biomarkers for genetic forms of frontotemporal dementia and caring for patients with movement disorders and cognitive impairment.

    Dr. Sha?s clinical expertise include Alzheimer?s disease, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy Body disease, corticobasal syndrome, progressive supranuclear palsy, Huntington?s disease, ataxia, multiple system atrophy, and other dementias.

    Dr. Sha?s non-clinical time is spent conducting clinical trials in order to identify disease modifying treatments for dementia. She has a special interest in genetic forms of dementia and the cognitive impairment in parkinsonian-related disorders.
