  • Eric Appel

    Eric Appel

    Assistant Professor of Material Science and Engineering, by courtesy, of Pediatrics (Endocrinology), of Bioengineering and Center Fellow, by courtesy, at the Woods Institute for the Environment

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe underlying theme of the Appel Lab at Stanford University integrates concepts and approaches from supramolecular chemistry, natural/synthetic materials, and biology. We aim to develop supramolecular biomaterials that exploit a diverse design toolbox and take advantage of the beautiful synergism between physical properties, aesthetics, and low energy consumption typical of natural systems. Our vision is to use these materials to solve fundamental biological questions and to engineer advanced healthcare solutions.

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Cardiology

    BioDr. Alisa Arunamata is a pediatric cardiologist and Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Stanford University School of Medicine. She specializes in cardiac imaging of the fetus through adulthood and provides comprehensive care to families and patients from the time of fetal diagnosis to post-operative management after cardiac surgery. She holds a number of leadership positions in education and hospital administration. She is currently the Associate Medical Director of Acute Cardiac Care at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, leads the pediatric cardiology fellowship training program as the Program Director, and was previously the Program Director of the Advanced Non-Invasive Imaging Fellowship.

    Dr. Arunamata has a deep interest in improving clinical outcomes for children with congenital and acquired heart disease, with a primary focus on refining the assessment and contribution of the right ventricle in disease and health.

    She graduated early with a degree in Molecular and Cell Biology (Biochemistry) from the University of California, Berkeley, obtained her medical degree at New York University School of Medicine and completed pediatric residency and cardiology fellowship training at Stanford. She was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society in 2019 and is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology.
