    Ileana Pirozzi

    Ph.D. Student in Bioengineering, admitted Autumn 2018
    Masters Student in Bioengineering, admitted Summer 2019
    Engineering Leaning Consultant, Center for Teaching and Learning

    BioIleana Pirozzi, from Colleferro (Roma), Italy, is pursuing a PhD in Bioengineering at Stanford School of Engineering as a Knight-Hennessy Scholar. At Brown University, she earned a bachelor’s degree in bioengineering and biomedical engineering. Ileana was a research intern at the NASA Ames Research Center and at the Tripathi Biomedical Engineering Lab at Brown. She was elected President of the Rhode Island Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the National Engineering Honors Society. Additionally, she was named a Vincent and Ruby DiMase Research Fellow at Brown’s School of Engineering and was a recipient of the Domenico Ionata Award for excellence in research and creativity in engineering, the Outstanding Senior in Biomedical Engineering Award, the Distinguished Thesis Prize and the K.T. Romer Undergraduate Teaching and Research Award. With her Brown-RISD team, EmboNet, she was awarded first prize at the international Johns Hopkins Healthcare Design Competition in the Advanced Healthcare division for their design of an embolic protection device.

  • Manu Prakash

    Manu Prakash

    Associate Professor of Bioengineering

    BioWe are a curiosity driven research group working in the field of physical biology. Our approach brings together experimental and theoretical techniques from soft-condensed matter physics, fluid dynamics, theory of computation and unconventional micro and nano-fabrication to open problems in biology: from organismal to cellular and molecular scale. We design and build precision instrumentation including droplet microfluidic tools to probe and perturb biological machines and their synthetic analogues. Along the way, we invent novel technologies in global health context with clinical applications in extreme resource poor settings.

  • Lei Stanley Qi

    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.

  • Christine Kurihara

    Christine Kurihara

    Affiliate, Bioengineering

    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.
