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 & outcomes, with a special focus on surgery and anesthesia. He is well known for helping develop the field of operating room management, and is keenly interested in the cost-effectiveness analyses of drugs and devices. For the past decade Dr. Macario has added medical education as a research priority to better understand methods to best teach students and residents. Google Scholar calculates Dr. Macario’s H-Index as 45 and his I-10 as 99.

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.
Professor of Pediatrics (Stem Cell Transplantation) and of Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Recent clinical studies, by us and others, have demonstrated unequivocally that T cell based immunotherapy can eradicate cancers resistant to all other available therapies. Our program is focused on using genetically engineered T cells to treat cancer. We link the bench with the bedside, developing novel therapies for early phase testing in clinical trials, as well as conducting intensive studies on clinical samples obtained from patients treated on immunotherapy trials.
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.
