John G. Costouros, MD, FACS
Clinical Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Costouros specializes in the arthroscopic and open treatment of shoulder and elbow disorders derived from sports injuries, arthritis, fractures, compressive neuropathies, and failed prior surgeries. He has made significant award-winning research discoveries in the molecular etiology and treatment of arthritis and cartilage injuries.
He has special expertise in the reverse total shoulder replacement, management of massive and irreparable rotator cuff tears, revision surgery, tendon transfers, fractures of the shoulder girdle, and the treatment of sports-related disorders and instability of the shoulder in overhead athletes using arthroscopic techniques.
His research focuses on improving our understanding of cartilage injury and arthritis at the cellular level, specifically the development of methods to modulate programmed cell death or apoptosis. He also is involved in the development of cell-based strategies in improving outcomes following rotator cuff repair and better understanding the causes of rotator cuff disease.
Dr. Costouros continues to be interested in the development of instruments to analyze surgical outcomes and the creation of registries which allow surgeons to better understand patient-specific outcomes, implant longevity, wear mechanisms, and how surgeons can consistently deliver the best results following shoulder and elbow surgery.
Professor of Medicine (Hematology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research integrates clinical care of patients with novel treatments for a variety of hematologic disorders. I see patients with a wide range of problems with a particular focus on chronic lymphocytic leukemia and multiple myeloma. I provide comprehensive consultative services as well as treatment for both the acute and chronic leukemias as well as non-malignant conditions such as clotting disorders and thrombocytopenia.
Associate Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Chemical and Systems Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our focus is on building computational models of complex biological processes, and using them to guide an experimental program. Such an approach leads to a relatively rapid identification and validation of previously unknown components and interactions. Biological systems of interest include metabolic, regulatory and signaling networks as well as cell-cell interactions. Current research involves the dynamic behavior of NF-kappaB, an important family of transcription factors.
Robert Cowan, MD, FAAN
Clinical Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Current interest focus on patient education technology and patient/physician communication with a particular emphasis on tools which increase encounter efficiency and improve outcomes. Basic research focuses on mechanisms of action in Chronic Daily Headache, with a particular emphasis on New Daily Persistent Headache. Techniques include fMRI, biomarker investigation and evoked potentials. Clinical research includes clinical trials of novel treatments for episodic and chronic headache forms.
Associate Professor of Pathology and, by courtesy, of Pediatrics (Genetics) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests screening and diagnosis of patients with inborn errors of metabolism, including newborn screening, development of new testing methods and genotype/phenotype correlations.
Kenneth L. Cox
Professor of Pediatrics (Gastroenterology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Gastroenterology, biliary motility, hormonal regulation, embryology, gastrointestinal tract, clinical management of pediatric liver transplant recipients.
Department of Pathology Professor in Experimental Pathology and Professor of Developmental Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Chromatin regulation and its roles in human cancer and the development of the nervous system. Engineering new methods for studying and controlling chromatin in living cells.
Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology, Gerontology and Metabolism) at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Investigation of the epidemiology of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) at a public hospital. All cases of DKA at SCVMC occurring over the past 5 years have been identified. Of the 480 cases of DKA, about 1/3 are in Type II diabetics, and 2/3 in Type I diabetics. We are exploring the causes of DKA in the two groups.
