Ravi Prasad, Ph.D.
Clinical Associate Professor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Bio Dr. Prasad first started working with patients with pain during his training in the 1990s and joined the Stanford faculty in 2004. In addition to performing patient evaluations and treatment, he develops and teaches curriculum about the psychological aspects of managing chronic pain to patients, residents, and postdoctoral pain fellows.
Dr. Prasad also holds a number of administrative roles. As Associate Chief of Pain Psychology, he oversees all aspects of clinical pain psychology services in the Division of Pain Medicine. He developed a Postdoctoral Pain Fellowship for psychologists and serves as its Training Director. He is also the director of one of the only academic inpatient pain programs in the western United States: the Stanford Comprehensive Interdisciplinary Pain Program. This intensive 5-10 day hospital based program provides medication optimization, physical reconditioning, behavioral modification training, and mood stabilization for patients with complex, debilitating chronic pain conditions.
Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Physics)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests center around three areas of medical physics: radionuclide imaging, X-ray molecular imaging and high-performance medical computing. My research efforts aim to advance cancer care by integrating new imaging techniques into the clinical workflow, and further our basic understanding of cancer biology by designing new assays that can probe subtle biochemical processes in single cells.
Edward F. and Irene Thiele Pimley Professor in Neurology and the Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Experiments examine
1)intrinsic properties of neuronal membranes; actions of neurotransmitters that regulate neocortical and thalamic excitability
2) chronic epileptogenesis following cortical injury; changes in intracortical connectivity and receptors;
3) effects of early injury and activity on cortical development/maldevelopment Electrophysiological, anatomical and pharmacological techniques employed.
4. prophylaxis of postraumatic epilepsy
5. Neocortical interneuronal function/modulation
John R. Pringle
Professor of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Much of our research exploits the power of yeast as an experimentally tractable model eukaryote to investigate fundamental problems in cell and developmental biology such as the mechanisms of cell polarization and cytokinesis. In another project, we are developing the small sea anemone Aiptasia as a model system for study of the molecular and cellular biology of dinoflagellate-cnidarian symbiosis, which is critical for the survival of most corals but still very poorly understood.
Professor of Genetics and of Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in a broad range of problems at the interface of genomics and evolutionary biology. One current focus of the lab is in understanding how genetic variation impacts gene regulation and complex traits. We also have long-term interests in using genetic data to learn about population structure, history and adaptation, especially in humans.
