Anaïs Rameau is assistant professor of otolaryngology – head and neck surgery at the Sean Parker Institute for the Voice, at Weill Cornell Medicine. Prior to joining Cornell, Dr. Rameau trained at Stanford University where she established the groundwork of her current clinical practice and research. As a clinician, she provides medical and surgical care to patients with voice, swallowing and airway problems. As a researcher, she focuses on the development of novel technologies to benefit older persons at risk of pneumonia and to restore voice in individuals who have lost their larynx to cancer. Her work is currently supported by federal, institutional and foundational grants.
Since her early education at the Lycée Lakanal, Dr. Rameau has valued arts and science education. She founded Logos, the first undergraduate journal of philosophy at Cornell University, now in its 15th year of publication, and after medical school, she pursued an MPhil History and Philosophy of Science at Cambridge University to study the epistemological basis of medical knowledge. She lectures on the nature of surgical knowledge and bioethical issues specific to surgery. She is a mentor to undergraduate, graduate, medical and postdoctoral students in both the sciences and the humanities.
