    Tina Hernandez-Boussard

    Associate Professor (Research) of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics), of Biomedical Data Science and of Surgery

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My background and expertise is in the field of computational biology, with concentration in health services research. A key focus of my research is to apply novel methods and tools to large clinical datasets for hypothesis generation, comparative effectiveness research, and the evaluation of quality healthcare delivery. My research involves managing and manipulating big data, which range from administrative claims data to electronic health records, and applying novel biostatistical techniques to innovatively assess clinical and policy related research questions at the population level. This research enables us to create formal, statistically rigid, evaluations of healthcare data using unique combinations of large datasets.

  • Marie Hollenhorst, MD, PhD

    Marie Hollenhorst, MD, PhD

    Clinical Instructor, Pathology

    Bio Dr. Hollenhorst is a physician and scientist with expertise in non-malignant hematology, transfusion medicine, and chemical biology. Dr. Hollenhorst values the one-on-one relationships that she forms with her patients, and strives to deliver the highest quality of care for individuals with blood diseases. Her experience caring for patients drives her to ask scientific questions in the laboratory, where she aims to bring a chemical approach to the study of non-malignant blood disease.

    Dr. Hollenhorst pursued combined MD and PhD training at Harvard University, where she received a PhD in Chemical Biology under the mentorship of Professor Christopher T Walsh. She subsequently completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital, a fellowship in Transfusion Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and a fellowship in Hematology at Stanford.

    Dr. Hollenhorst has a particular interest in the biology of platelets, which are cellular fragments that help the blood to maintain a healthy balance between excessive bleeding and excessive clotting. Working in the laboratory of Professor Carolyn Bertozzi of Stanford Chemistry, Dr. Hollenhorst is studying sugar-containing molecules that are found within platelets and are important in controlling their function and lifespan.

    Dr. Hollenhorst's research is supported by a Stanford Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health Physician-Scientist Fellowship, a National Institutes of Health Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship, and a National Blood Foundation Early-Career Scientific Research Grant.

  • Susan Holmes

    Susan Holmes

    Professor of Statistics

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab has been developing tools for the analyses of complex data structures, extending work on multivariate data to structured multitable table that include graphs, networks and trees as well as categorical and continuous measurements.
    We created and support the Bioconductor package phyloseq for the analyses of microbial ecology data from the microbiome. We have specialized in developing interactive graphical visualization tools for doing reproducible research in biology.

  • David Hong

    David Hong

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurosurgery

    Bio Dr. Hong specializes in the treatment of pediatric patients with neurosurgical conditions, with additional specialty training in the treatment of pediatric spinal disorders, including scoliosis. He completed his residency in his home state of Michigan at the Detroit Medical Center, and completed fellowship training at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, before becoming a part of Stanford Children's Health.

    His clinical interests include brain tumors, epilepsy surgery, idiopathic scoliosis, Chiari malformation, vascular conditions, concussion, and will treat all other conditions within the specialty.
