Lei (Stanley) Qi
Associate Professor of BioengineeringOn Leave from 01/01/2023 To 06/30/2023
BioDr. Lei (Stanley) Qi is Associate Professor of Bioengineering, Sarafan ChEM-H, and a Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator. Dr. Qi is one major contributor to the development of CRISPR technology for genome engineering. His lab developed the first nuclease-deactivated Cas9 (dCas9) for gene targeting and regulation in cells. His lab invents a series of CRISPR tools, including CRISPRi and CRISPRa for targeted gene regulation, epigenome editing, LiveFISH for live cell imaging, CRISPR-GO for 3D genome manipulation, CasMINI as a miniature CRISPR for gene therapy, hyperCas12a for multigene engineering, and CRISPR antivirals for treating SARS-CoV-2. His lab is broadly interested in mammalian synthetic biology, epigenome engineering, immune cell engineering, directed evolution, and novel gene therapy. They also actively investigates the functional role of human noncoding genome. Dr. Qi obtained B.S. in Physics and Math from Tsinghua University, Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California, Berkeley, and was a UCSF Systems Biology Fellow. He joined the faculty at Stanford University in 2014.
Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering
BioJian Qin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Stanford University. His research focuses on development of microscopic understanding of structural and physical properties of soft matters by using a combination of analytical theory, scaling argument, numerical computation, and molecular simulation. He worked as a postdoctoral scholar with Juan de Pablo in the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago and with Scott Milner in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. He received his Ph.D. in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Minnesota under the supervision of David Morse and Frank Bates. His research covers self-assembly of multi-component polymeric systems, molecular origin of entanglement and polymer melt rheology, coacervation of polyelectrolytes, Coulomb interactions in dielectrically heterogeneous electrolytes, and surface charge polarizations in particulate aggregates in the absence or presence of flow.
