    Nathaniel Breg

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Health Policy

    BioNate Breg is a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University's Department of Health Policy and at the Palo Alto Veterans Health Administration. He earned his PhD at Carnegie Mellon University and his BA at Tufts University.

    His interest in health care providers intersects with questions from labor economics and industrial organization. Nate's current research investigates how providers respond to incentives, how they decide to adopt new technology, and how health care services affect local economies and local health. He is a 2020-2021 recipient of the Fellowship in Digital Health from CMU's Center for Machine Learning and Health.

    He previously worked at RTI International on evaluations of government health care initiatives, prospective payment systems, and health care delivery quality measures, employing econometrics and other quantitative methods. His clients included the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the U.S. Health and Human Services Department’s Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE).

    Research interests: health economics, labor economics, industrial organization, public economics, productivity, reimbursement and regulation, imperfect competition, organizational economics

  • Cellas Ari'ka Hayes

    Cellas Ari'ka Hayes

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Epidemiology

    BioCellas is currently a postdoctoral fellow/Propel scholar at Stanford University in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences in a laboratory utilizing longitudinal data analysis and neuroimaging modalities to understand the aging brain, neuropathology, cognition, and Alzheimer’s Disease. Postdoctoral experience includes using R, Linux, and Python to perform data preprocessing, multivariate statistical analysis, and applying novel models for longitudinal continuous outcomes. Cellas received his Bachelor’s in Biology (2015-2019) and Doctor of Philosophy in Pharmaceutical Sciences with an emphasis in Pharmacology (2019-2022) from the University of Mississippi. As a doctoral candidate, his research focused on using both in vitro and in vivo approaches to further elucidate how neuroendocrine modulation specifically insulin-like growth factor-1 alters learning and memory performance along with ischemic stroke outcomes. Skills gained during doctoral training included in vitro cell culture, pharmacological experimental design of both in vitro and in vivo studies, development of transgenic mouse models, a wide array of rodent behavioral paradigms, stereotaxic surgery, photothrombosis, and numerous ex vivo cellular, molecular, and microscopy techniques.
    My primary interests lie at the intersection of aging, neurodegenerative disease, and using longitudinal epidemiological data sets to investigate hypotheses. All around neuroscientist seeking sci-comm, industry, and academic opportunities to strengthen skills to become an independent investigator.
