Clinical Associate Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Zack is involved with ongoing research related to the treatment of adolescent and adult trauma (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - TF-CBT; Prolonged Exposure - PE), and the effective provision of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to adolescent girls and women with disorder of emotion regulation. She additionally studies Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for adolescent girls with anxiety. More broadly she is interested in the impact of Evidenced Based Treatments on improving quality of life, and helping individuals find the right match for clinical care. Research is conducted through the Early Life Stress and Pediatric Anxiety Disorders Program at Stanford Children's Hospital and the Stanford Dialectical Behavior Therapy Program.

Sandra Zaky, MD, MS, DABR
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Dr. Zaky is a board certified Radiation Oncologist. She received a Bachelor’s of Science in Biomedical/Electrical Engineering at Marquette University. She worked in research and development as an Engineer, and eventually received a Masters of Science in Immunology from Albany Medical College. Her research thesis focused on a novel therapy to treat hormone-receptor positive breast cancer. She continued to study breast cancer with her research during her Radiation Oncology residency; she integrated her research in the laboratory with her clinical research in triple-negative breast cancer. Since completing residency, she has worked as a general radiation oncologist, and her special interests include breast cancer, skin cancer, CNS tumors and stereotactic radiotherapy.
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Cardiovascular Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The commonest heart rhythm disorder is atrial fibrillation (AF). AF is a problem as it can lead to strokes and heart attacks. It is difficult to cure, with many tablets required that are only partially effective. A new way of selecting areas for ablation (burning) focusses on rotors - areas where electrical waves spin like a hurricane. At Stanford, I am working with the developer of this technique to improve understanding of why these occur at certain sites and how better to identify these.
Raiyan T. Zaman
Instructor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My academic and scientific training has been focused on design and development of novel fiber-optic based biomedical instrumentation to improve the detection and, intervention, and treatment of various diseases. Currently, I am on a Western State Affiliate Winter 2013 Postdoctoral Fellowship from the American Heart Association (AHA) at the Stanford University School of Medicine in the laboratory of Professors Lei Xing and Michael V. McConnell, where I developed a novel fiber-optic catheter based optical imaging system to detect vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque in carotid arteries. In this work, I developed a novel scintillating balloon which can detect the vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque from stable plaque with high sensitivity after 18F-FDG uptake by the macrophages within the thin cap fibro atheroma (TCFA). The TCFA causes 60-70% of acute coronary syndrome that leads to sudden cardiac death and myocardial infarction.

Marta Gaia Zanchi
Bio I am the creator and Lead Director of the Byers Center for Biodesign's course and project immersion program "Biodesign for Mobile Health" (BMH) examining the emerging mobile health industry (2012-present). This diverse, interactive, interdisciplinary, team and project-oriented course has been named by Stanford's Bioengineering "one of the flagship courses of our Department" and has trained nearly 200 students in a process of health technology innovation grounded on the understanding of contemporary Mobile Health needs.
Currently Faculty member (Lecturer) at Stanford University in the School of Medicine, I am working with the Byers Center for Biodesign community under the direct supervision of Paul Yock, MD, Director of the Center and Founding Co-Chair of Stanford's Department of Bioengineering.
In addition to my role as Faculty member and course Lead Director, I am a member of the Biodesign Leadership Group and a mentor to both Biodesign Fellows and students from the School of Medicine, all major Engineering schools and the Graduate School of Business. Together with a mHealth Advisory Group of thought leaders at Stanford, I help inform Stanford School of Medicine's thinking and strategy around Mobile Health to accelerate projects and foster quality research.

At Stanford, I also have the pleasure to advise on the board of SHIFT, a student initiative aiming to promote and cultivate health innovation on campus by creating a forum for developers, entrepreneurs, and pre-health students to collaborate. A motivated leadership team envisions the group as a platform that connects and empowers students with resources and opportunities to innovate in healthcare. SHIFT fulfills its mission through open roundtable discussions, the TreeHacks Health hackathon and a fellowship program that pairs students as health++ fellows with early-stage companies or faculty-sponsored projects.
