Alex Macario MD MBA
Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Macario studies health care economics and outcomes, with a special focus on surgery and anesthesia. Dr. Macario is well known for helping develop the field of operating room management. He is also passionate about cost-effectiveness analyses of drugs and devices. For the past decade Dr. Macario has added research in medical education as a key focus to better understand methods to best teach students and residents.
M Bruce MacIver
Professor (Research) of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We study drug effects on the nervous system. Cellular, synaptic and molecular drug actions are investigated using electrophysiological and pharmacological tools in cortical/hippocampal brain slice preparations. We are also interested in mechanisms of neuronal integration and synchronization, especially related to patterns of EEG activity seen in vivo and in brain slices.
Assistant Professor of Statistics and, by courtesy, of Computer Science
Bio My current research interests include statistical machine learning, high-dimensional statistics, algorithms and data structures, and concentration inequalities. Lately, I've been developing and analyzing algorithms for ranking, admixtures, matrix factorization, and collaborative filtering and crafting concentration inequalities for random matrices. I'm also organizing a working group on Statistics for Social Good. My interest lies, more generally, in problems that bridge applications and theory and that involve drawing inferences from large, structured datasets.
Quixotic though it may sound, I hope to use computer science and statistics to change the world for the better. If you have thoughts on how to do this, feel free to contact me.
Sean Mackey, M.D., Ph.D.
Redlich Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Functional neuroimaging of pain. Imaging of cognitive and affective dimensions of pain, neural plasticity contributing to chronic pain and effects of treatment.
Effects of membrane stabilizing medications on neuropathic pain.
Chronic pain outcomes tools development and measurement.
Daniel V. Madison
Associate Professor of Molecular and Cellular Physiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory is interested in the function and plasticity CNS synapses, including studies of the detailed structure and protein content of synapses in different plastic states. We also have a strong interest in the pathophysiology of Azheimer’s disease as related to endocannabinoids. We use primarily electrophysiogy and high-resolution array tomographic imaging to dissect the function of synapses undergoing changes due either to external stimuli, disease states or internal modulation.
