The Rogalla Lab

Dr. Stephan Rogalla MD, PhD

Principal Investigator; Clinical Assistant Professor (Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

Dr. Rogalla completed his medical training at the Charité, medical school of Humboldt University, in Berlin, Germany. He joined the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) in 2012 for a postdoctoral fellowship in early cancer detection under his principal investigator, Dr. Christopher Contag. He finished the fellowship 2015 and was promoted to instructor. In 2017 he transitioned to work under the supervision of Dr. Sam Gambhir in MIPS. Since 2020 he is clinical assistant professor and principal investigator of the Rogalla Lab.

Since 2016 Dr. Rogalla is co-chair of the Intra-Operative Imaging Study Group of the European Society of Molecular Imaging (ESMI) (2016-Present). He is member of the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), ESMI and World Molecular Imaging Society (WMIS).

Dr. Rogalla's current research is in the field of early cancer detection using targeted molecular spies to highlight (pre)cancerous lesions and developing novel imaging tools for fluorescence and spectroscopic imaging. He also aims to improve precision medicine in autoimmune disorders like inflammatory bowel disease and gastrointestinal cancer.
