Senior Associate Dean, Graduate Education & Postdoctoral Affairs and Professor of Developmental Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe use genetic and cellular approaches to investigate the molecular basis of glial development and myelination in the zebrafish.
Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering
BioDr. Sindy KY Tang joined the faculty of Stanford University in September 2011 as an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. She received her Ph.D. from Harvard University in Engineering Sciences under the supervision of Prof. George Whitesides. Her lab at Stanford works on the fundamental understanding of fluid mechanics and mass transport in microfluidic systems, and the application of this knowledge towards problems in biology, rapid diagnostics for health and environmental sustainability. The current areas of focus include the hydrodynamics of concentrated emulsions in confinements, interfacial mass transport and self-assembly, and ultrahigh throughput opto-microfluidic systems for biochemical sensing and diagnostics, water and energy sustainability, and single-cell wound healing studies. Dr. Tang’s work has been recognized by multiple awards including the NSF CAREER Award, 3M Nontenured Faculty Award, and the ACS Petroleum Fund New Investigator Award.

Mary Frances Nunez Teruel
Assistant Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology and, by courtesy, of Bioengineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Teruel Lab uses a combination of engineering and biological approaches including high-throughput screening of RNAi and DNA construct libraries, targeted mass spectrometry, live-cell fluorescence microscopy, and bioinformatics to investigate the systems biology of cell differentiation and cell signaling with particular focus on uncovering the molecular mechanisms underlying insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity.
