Lei Stanley Qi
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and of Chemical and Systems Biology
BioDr. Lei Qi (Stanley) is Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering (School of Engineering), Department of Chemical and Systems Biology (School of Medicine), and a core faculty member in Stanford ChEM-H Institute. He is one pioneer in the CRISPR technology development for genome engineering. He has developed the CRISPRi/a technologies for purposes beyond gene editing: gene regulation using CRISPR interference (CRISPRi, gene repression) and CRISPR activation (CRISPRa, gene activation), CRISPR dynamic imaging of chromatin in living cells, and CRISPRi/a high-throughput single or combinatorial genetic screens. He is also active in the field of Synthetic Biology and has developed synthetic noncoding RNAs for controlling transcription and translation. He obtained his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California Berkeley/UCSF in 2012. He joined UCSF as faculty fellow between 2012 to 2014, and joined the faculty at Stanford University since 2014. His lab currently is applying genetic engineering to rational cell design for understanding genomics and cell therapy.

BioMs. Kurihara, a retiree, was formerly with the Bioengineering Prakash Lab focused on frugal science, physics of biology, and unique approaches to helping get science into the hands of many.
Previously with Biodesign, as Senior Associate Director of Global and Communication, Christine was responsible for Biodesign's global fellowship programs. Ms. Kurihara also oversaw IT and web projects and was responsible for communication and marketing for Biodesign. Ms. Kurihara joined Biodesign after an eleven-year career with Stanford in the area of media services. She also spearheaded media development efforts for an on-campus service unit, where her teams produced websites, online courseware, video and broadcast products. Prior to Media Solutions, she was the first coordinator of the Stanford University website. In 1997, Ms. Kurihara was co-chair of the Sixth International World Wide Web Conference. Prior to Stanford, she worked for The Aerospace Corporation for twelve years managing Computer-Aided Engineering development.
