Subhro K. Sen, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
Bio Subhro K. Sen, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in biomedical engineering. He went on to receive his medical degree from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. After medical school, he completed a peripheral nerve research fellowship at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. He received his postgraduate training in general surgery at Indiana University, followed by plastic and reconstructive surgery at Johns Hopkins University. He completed his training with a hand and upper extremity surgery fellowship at Stanford University.
Dr. Sen’s general clinical interests are in reconstructive surgery, microvascular surgery, and hand and upper extremity surgery. His plastic surgery practice includes: post-traumatic extremity reconstruction; post-oncologic reconstruction of the head and neck, trunk and extremities; perforator flap surgery; and melanoma surgery. He is also co-medical director of the Stanford Advanced Wound Care Center. As a hand surgeon in the Robert A. Chase Hand and Upper Limb Center, he has interests in hand trauma, reconstruction, degenerative conditions, peripheral nerve injuries, oncologic conditions and congenital hand differences.
In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Sen is involved in research, publication, and teaching. His peer-reviewed research includes studies on peripheral nerve regeneration, and he has authored a number of book chapters on a variety of hand surgery topics. He has reviewed manuscripts submitted for publication in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Annals of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Sen is double board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery.

Clinical Instructor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Bio I grew up in a wonderful community in California, surrounded by old chicken farms and horses, living in the house that my great-grandfather built. I attended Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, a small liberal arts school where I became interested in the sciences and medicine. I then moved halfway across the country to St. Louis, Missouri, for a joint MD/PhD program with graduate training focused on the development and patterning of the fruit fly eye. Missing my family and California, I made my way back after graduation from medical school and completed my residency training at Stanford Children's Health/Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. I have been working as a hospitalist and pediatrician at Stanford Children's Health since graduating from residency.
I believe that pediatricians not only have the responsibility and privilege to care for children but also the opportunity to partner with parents in helping their children grow and develop over time. Parenthood can be incredibly rewarding and very challenging and every person's experience of being a parent is unique. I love working closely with families to promote their child's health, growth and development, whether that is while their baby is in the hospital after birth or as a pediatrician in the High Risk Infant Follow-Up Clinic at Stanford Children's Health. I also enjoy teaching and working with residents and medical students in both settings.

Sharon Sha, MD, MS
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Bio Dr. Sha received her Bachelor’s degrees from UC Berkeley in Cognitive Science and Molecular Cell Biology, emphasizing in Neurobiology. 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.
While at UCSF, she saw the majority of patients with Huntington’s disease and ataxia in clinic and research, including ENROLL HD and the Natural History Study of and Genetic Modifiers in Spinocerebellar Ataxias. She has been a member of the Hungtington’s Study Group since 2011. She is board-certified in Neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and subspecialty boarded in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry by the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties.
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.

Robert W. Shafer
Professor (Research) of Medicine (Infectious Diseases and Geographic Medicine) and, by courtesy, of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My group’s research is on the mechanisms and consequences of virus evolution with a focus on HIV therapy and drug resistance. We maintain a public HIV drug resistance database (http://hivdb.stanford.edu) as a resource for HIV drug resistance surveillance, interpreting HIV drug resistance tests, and HIV drug development. Our paramount goal is to inform HIV treatment and prevention policies by identifying the main factors responsible for the emergence and spread of drug resistance.
Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of intravenous anesthetics, including drug interactions and continuous measures of drug effect; model-based drug development; target controlled drug delivery; advanced models of drug behavior.
Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Stem Cell Transplantation
Bio I did my training in Pediatrics and Hematology/ Oncology at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles where I was an attending physician for 15 years.. I joined Stanford University in 2015 as a clinical attending in the Division of Stem Cell Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine. My areas of clinical expertise have been in the areas of transplantation for immune deficiencies and immune reconstitution post HSCT. I was involved with several clinical gene therapy trial for SCID and ALD. My other main areas of research have been in the neurocognitive function post HSCT. I have been involved with several national committees addressing the late effects of HSCT within the ASBMT and COG.
