Dr. Jackler was raised in Waterville, Maine, attended college and medical school in Boston, and moved west to the University of California, San Francisco for residency in Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. After taking a Neurotology fellowship at the House Ear Clinic (1985), Dr. Jackler joined the faculty at UCSF where he remained until 2003 when he became the Sewall Professor and Chair of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery and professor in the departments of Neurosurgery and Surgery at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Under his leadership the faculty grew from 6 to over 50, is ranked #2 in the US, and grew annual research budget from nil to over $12 million.Dr. Jackler is an otologist-neurotologist who specializes in complex ear diseases. He has a special interest in tumors of the lateral and posterior cranial base and has written numerous analytical papers derived from his microsurgical series. A long standing collaboration with medical illustrator Chris Gralapp has produced @3000 original illustrations of ear and cranial base surgery. Since 1989, Dr. Jackler has maintained a fellowship program in neurotology & skull base surgery which has trained many academic leaders in the field. Dr. Jackler has authored 180+ peer reviewed papers, 40+ chapters, numerous editorials, published four books Neurotology (1994, 2004), Atlas of Neurotology & Skull Base Surgery (1996, 2008), Tumors of the Ear and Temporal Bone (2000), and Ear Surgery Illustrated (2019). Dr. Jackler leads the Stanford Initiative to Cure Hearing Loss whose mission is to create biological cures for major forms of inner ear hearing loss through a research effort that is sustained, large-scale, multidisciplinary, focused, goal–oriented, and transformational. He is past president of the American Neurotology Society, editor-in chief emeritus of the journal Otology & Neurotology, and is an honorary member of the Royal College of Surgeons in both London and Edinburgh. In 2006, Dr. Jackler and his wife Laurie founded the interdisciplinary research group Stanford Research Into The Impact of Tobacco Advertising which conducts research into the promotional activities of the tobacco industry. SRITA collected >50,000 original tobacco advertisements which now resides in the National Museum of American History of the Smithsonian Institution which has a public exhibit in 2019. SRITA maintains an extensive online digital collection of tobacco advertisement for use by scholars (tobacco.stanford.edu) which over the last 7 years has had over 630,000 unique users from around the world. Current SRITA research is focused upon emerging tobacco products such as JUUL and IQOS with a special emphasis upon how these new devices are marketed to adolescents.
We are in the midst a surge electronic cigarettes advertising which has resurrected methods long been prohibited in the marketing of tobacco products. The industry maintains that their primary intent is to recruit present cigarette smokers to convert to electronic cigarettes. However, their advertising content suggests that they also seek to recruit youthful starter smokers, adult non-smokers, and even to reclaim lapsed smokers. We plan to addresses three aims: 1. To systematically examine electronic cigarette advertising to determine the advertising methods used and their apparent targets; 2. To identify antecedent tobacco advertising campaigns which have been emulated in current electronic cigarette advertisements; and 3. To interpret electronic cigarettes advertising in relation fo federal (FTC, FDA) regulatory actions intended to constrain cigarette marketing.

Stanford Research Into the Impact of Tobacco Advertising (tobacco.stanford.edu)<br/><br/>Drawn to the field when my mother was dying of lung cancer in the early 2000s, for over fifteen years the study of tobacco industry marketing has become my primary field of research as well as my intellectual and creative passion. Motivated by the lack of a comprehensive and well organized compendium of tobacco advertisements, and the relative paucity of scholarly research analyzing the marketing practices of the industry, I chose to focus my research on advertising. The overarching purpose of my research has been to reveal the behavior of the tobacco industry in recruiting and retaining its consumers with the goal of informing regulators and legislators as they consider tobacco policy.<br/><br/>As my tobacco research intensified, in 2006 I created a research group which studies the impact tobacco advertising, marketing, and promotion. The initial priority of SRITA was to create a digital repository of tobacco advertising material to support scholarship, advocacy, judicial proceedings, and regulatory/legislative deliberations. The online collection has grown to become the world’s largest repository of tobacco advertising images. Most images are high quality scan which are contained within a searchable, meta-data rich, annotated online database. As of October 2019, the online collection (tobacco.stanford.edu) is comprised of 55,579 tobacco advertisements and has had 637,589 unique users representing virtually every country in the world. The entire compendium of original tobacco advertisements from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries now reside in the archives of the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution. A Smithsonian exhibit “When More Doctors Smoked Camels” launched in April 2018. <br/><br/>As our group seeks to influence policy, media attention is helpful in communicating the fruits of our research. The work of SRITA has been subject of articles in the New York Times, Time Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, SF Chronicle, LA Times, Forbes, Times of London, Vox, Rolling Stone, Mother Jones, Wired, History Channel, The Atlantic, Smithsonian Magazine, and many other media outlets. Numerous TV and radio news shows have featured the work of SRITA including CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NPR, AP, Reuters, and Bloomberg.<br/><br/>As a Stanford University program, SRITA focuses upon original scholarship utilizing the unique resource of our advertising collection. Our early academic focus was primarily historical study of advertisements using images of physicians and targeted to physicians in medical journals as well as overt health claims so prominent in the 20th century. A 2015 study on the ethics of trial testimony of physicians in defense of the tobacco industry received wide media attention. SRITA research interests include targeting of special populations such as of women, youth, and African Americans. <br/><br/>In recent years, our research has focused primarily upon emerging tobacco products such as e-cigarettes and heat-not-burn devices. We have conducted numerous studies of the promotion of popular products such as JUUL and IQOS, social media marketing, cessation advertising, nicotine delivery, and the role of flavors in attracting youth. Our early 2019 white paper on “JUUL Marketing in its First 3 Years on the Market” has had major impact among regulators and legislators. In late 2019, we plan to release a major white paper on the “Global Marketing of IQOS: The Philip Morris Campaign to Popularize “Heat-Not-Burn” Tobacco.” Aside from scholarship, SRITA has been extensively engaged in helping to inform policy through consultations with congress (testified to House Oversight Committee in July 2019 on the JUUL phenomenon), the FDA, and legislators, regulators, and attorneys general from numerous states.
Subtotal Resection of Large Acoustic Neuromas With Possible Stereotactic Radiation Therapy
The investigators study is to investigate safety and efficacy of performing a planned
incomplete removal of large acoustic neuroma tumors to decrease surgical morbidity and yet
avoid tumor recurrence by post-operative radiation therapy.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
