Fellows, Current and Past

Talia Lester | Class of 2022

MD: David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in Los Angeles, CA 

Residency Program: Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA

Mentor: Lynne Huffman, MD

Research: I am curious about how to improve clinical care for children with mental health and behavioral challenges. I am especially interested in understanding how developmental-behavioral pediatricians can support primary care providers in caring for children with common mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. My fellowship research project will investigate the patterns of how primary care providers prescribe medication for children with anxiety and depression.

Machiko Hosoki | Class of 2022

MD: Kanazawa University School of Medicine

Residency Program: Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso

Mentor: Heidi Feldman, MD, PhD

Research: I am interested in reading abilities and reading disorders including its comorbidities. I am especially interested in understanding them in neurophysiological and clinical level and correlating them.  In my fellowship research project, I plan to investigate behavioral problems, their association with later reading abilities, and their association with measures of white matter pathways in school-age children born preterm and at term.
