  • Jacqueline Alderson

    Jacqueline Alderson

    Visiting Professor, Bioengineering

    BioProfessor Jacqueline Alderson is the Tech Director of the University of Western Australia Tech & Policy Lab and a Fulbright Senior Scholar and Visiting Professor at Stanford University. She has over 250 publications and reports in the fields of biomechanical modelling, wearable technologies, applied machine learning, injury prevention, and pro-public technology development. From 2012-23 she served on the Executive Councils of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, followed by the International Society of Biomechanics. Her current advisory board roles include the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) Female Performance Health Initiative as well as the UK EPSRC Centre, CAMERA 2.0. Her 26 PhD graduates can be found in leading heath, academic, and high-performance and professional sport institutions around the world. These include the MLB and NFL in the United States; national sports institutes (Singapore, UK, AUS); and, in her home country, Swimming Australia, Tennis Australia, and the Australian Football League. As one of the founding architects of Australia’s Digital Athlete program and the ISBS Geoffrey Dyson awardee for 2024, Jacqueline is visiting Stanford Bioengineering to extend her research stream on the development of digital human twins, with a specific focus on the urgent need for technology regulation and governance in this domain. Her project is supported by the American Chamber of Commerce in Australia (Inaugural Professional Alliance Award) and the Fulbright Commission.

  • Narges Baniasadi

    Narges Baniasadi

    Adjunct Professor

    BioDr. Narges Baniasadi is founder and executive director of Emergence program at Stanford. She is also Adjunct Professor with the BioEngineering department where she teaches purposeful entrepreneurship in the areas related to Health Equity and Sustainability. Narges has led multiple initiatives and businesses in the intersection of Technology and Life Sciences for more than a decade. She founded Bina, a pioneering Bioinformatics company, out of a decade of research at Stanford and UC Berkeley. Bina developed high performance computing platforms and AI solutions for cancer research and genomics analysis. Later, upon acquisition of Bina by Roche, she led the clinical software development and AI research as VP of Informatics at Roche Sequencing until 2018.

  • Annelise E. Barron

    Annelise E. Barron

    Associate Professor of Bioengineering
    On Leave from 04/01/2024 To 06/30/2024

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsBiophysical mechanisms of host defense peptides (a.k.a. antimicrobial peptides) and their peptoid mimics; also, molecular and cellular biophysics of human innate immune responses.

  • Lacramioara Bintu

    Lacramioara Bintu

    Assistant Professor of Bioengineering

    BioLacra Bintu is an Assistant Professor in the Bioengineering Department at Stanford. Her lab performs single-cell and high-throughput measurements of chromatin and gene regulation dynamics, and uses these data to develop predictive models and improve mammalian cell engineering.

    Lacra started working on the theory of gene regulation as an undergraduate with Jané Kondev from Brandeis University and Rob Phillips from Caltech. As a Physics PhD student in the lab of Carlos Bustamante at U.C. Berkeley, she used single-molecule methods to tease apart the molecular mechanisms of transcription through nucleosomes. She transitioned to studying the dynamics of epigenetic regulation in live cells during her postdoctoral fellowship with Michael Elowitz at Caltech.

  • Kwabena Boahen

    Kwabena Boahen

    Professor of Bioengineering and of Electrical Engineering

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsBoahen's group analyzes neural behavior computationally to elucidate principles of neural design at the cellular, circuit, and systems levels; and synthesizes neuromorphic electronic systems that scale energy-use with size as efficiently as the brain does. This interdisciplinary research program bridges neurobiology and medicine with electronics and computer science, bringing together these seemingly disparate fields.

  • Jenn Brophy

    Jenn Brophy

    Assistant Professor of Bioengineering

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe develop technologies that enable the genetic engineering of plants and their associated microbes with the goal of driving innovation in agriculture for a sustainable future. Our work is focused in synthetic biology and the reprogramming of plant development for enhanced environmental stress tolerance.

  • Zev Bryant

    Zev Bryant

    Associate Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Structural Biology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMolecular motors lie at the heart of biological processes from DNA replication to vesicle transport. My laboratory seeks to understand the physical mechanisms by which these nanoscale machines convert chemical energy into mechanical work.
