    Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and of Chemical and Systems Biology

    BioDr. Lei (Stanley) Qi is an assistant professor in the Department of Bioengineering and Department of Chemical and Systems Biology at Stanford University. He is a faculty fellow in ChEM-H. He is one of the developers and pioneers in the CRISPR technology for sequence-specfic genome engineering. He has developed a series of CRISPR-based gene regulation and imaging technologies, including CRISPR interference (CRISPRi), CRISPR activation (CRISPRa), CRISPR imaging, and high-throughput CRISPRi/a screening. He works in the field of Synthetic Biology, and developed synthetic noncoding RNA approaches for control of the Central Dogma including ranscription and translation. He obtained his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California Berkeley in 2012, and performed independent research as a Systems Biology Fellow at UCSF from 2012 to 2014. His lab is currently applying genome engineering approaches for the interrogation of genomics related to cell differentiation, proliferation, epigenetic regulation and diseases.
