Jin S. Hahn, MD
Professor of Neurology, of Pediatrics and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests 1. Clinical informatics and electronic health records

Casey H. Halpern, MD
Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are currently investigating the effects of deep brain stimulation in obesity using mouse models of human behavior. Many obese individuals exhibit behavioral disinhibition, a clinical feature of many neurologic and psychiatric conditions. We are dissecting the mesocorticolimbic circuit with novel techniques including optogenetics.
Odette Harris, MD, MPH
Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Traumatic brain injury with a focus on epidemiology and outcomes.

Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Microsurgical treatment of tumors of the brain, spinal cord, pituitary gland and skull base;
Radiosurgery of tumors;
Molecular biology of brain tumors.
Melanie G Hayden Gephart
Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests As a neurosurgeon with an active practice treating patients with brain tumors, my lab uniquely understands the pressing clinical questions in neuro-oncology. My masters degree in clinical research provides understanding of the translational potential of newly identified treatments through the development of clinical trials. My basic science postdoctoral fellowship studied tumor genomics and identified potentially targetable genes crucial in tumorigenesis. My lab currently studies the capacity of cellular and cell-free DNA to inform treatment choices in patients with brain tumors, and single cell and cell subtype-specific transcriptomics of infiltrating glioblastoma.
Jaimie Henderson, MD
John and Jene Blume - Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests encompass several areas of stereotactic and functional neurosurgery, including frameless stereotactic approaches for therapy delivery to deep brain nuclei; deformable patient-specific atlases for targeting brain structures; cortical physiology and its relationship to normal and pathological movement; neural prostheses; and the development of novel neuromodulatory techniques for the treatment of movement disorders, pain, and other neurological diseases.
Karen G. Hirsch, MD
Assistant Professor of Neurology and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Karen G. Hirsch cares for critically ill patients with neurologic disorders in the intensive care unit and for patients with cerebrovascular disease in the inpatient stroke unit. Dr. Hirsch's research focuses on novel imaging techniques such as functional brain imaging in patients with cardiac arrest and traumatic brain injury. She also studies methods of non-invasive measurement of cerebral blood flow, oxygenation, and cerebrovascular autoregulation and how these parameters might be targeted to improve outcome in patients with neurologic injury. In the outpatient clinic, she sees patients with head injury, stroke and other neurovascular diseases in addition to patients who have been discharged from the neurological intensive care unit.
