    Carolyn Bertozzi

    Baker Family Director of Sarafan ChEM-H, Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences and Professor, by courtesy, of Chemical and Systems Biology and of Radiology

    BioProfessor Carolyn Bertozzi's research interests span the disciplines of chemistry and biology with an emphasis on studies of cell surface sugars important to human health and disease. Her research group profiles changes in cell surface glycosylation associated with cancer, inflammation and bacterial infection, and uses this information to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, most recently in the area of immuno-oncology.

    Dr. Bertozzi completed her undergraduate degree in Chemistry at Harvard University and her Ph.D. at UC Berkeley, focusing on the chemical synthesis of oligosaccharide analogs. During postdoctoral work at UC San Francisco, she studied the activity of endothelial oligosaccharides in promoting cell adhesion at sites of inflammation. She joined the UC Berkeley faculty in 1996. A Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator since 2000, she came to Stanford University in June 2015, among the first faculty to join the interdisciplinary institute ChEM-H (Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health). She is now the Baker Family Director of Stanford ChEM-H.

    Named a MacArthur Fellow in 1999, Dr. Bertozzi has received many awards for her dedication to chemistry, and to training a new generation of scientists fluent in both chemistry and biology. She has been elected to the Institute of Medicine, National Academy of Sciences, and American Academy of Arts and Sciences; and received the Lemelson-MIT Prize, the Heinrich Wieland Prize, the ACS Award in Pure Chemistry, and the Chemistry of the Future Solvay Prize, among others.

    The Bertozzi Group develops chemical tools to study the glycobiology underlying diseases such as cancer, inflammation, tuberculosis and most recently COVID-19. She is the inventor of "bioorthogonal chemistry", a class of chemical reactions compatible with living systems that enable molecular imaging and drug targeting. Her group also developed new therapeutic modalities for targeted degradation of extracellular biomolecules, such as antibody-enzyme conjugates and Lysosome Targeting Chimeras (LYTACs). As well, her group studies NGly1 deficiency, a rare genetic disease characterized by loss of the human N-glycanase.

    Several of the technologies developed in the Bertozzi lab have been adapted for commercial use. Actively engaged with several biotechnology start-ups, Dr. Bertozzi cofounded Redwood Bioscience, Enable Biosciences, Palleon Pharmaceuticals, InterVenn Bio, OliLux Bio, Grace Science LLC and Lycia Therapeutics. She is also a member of the Board of Directors of Lilly.

  • Sandip Biswal, MD

    Sandip Biswal, MD

    Adjunct Clinical Professor, Radiology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe management of individuals suffering from chronic pain is unfortunately limited by poor diagnostic tests and therapies. Our research group is interested in 'imaging pain' by using novel imaging techniques to study peripheral nociception and inflammation with the goal of accurately identifying the location of pain generators. We are developing new approaches with positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (PET/MRI) and are currently in clinical trials.

  • Brian Boitnott

    Brian Boitnott

    Ph.D. Student in Biomedical Physics, admitted Autumn 2023

    BioI am currently a PhD student in Biomedical Physics within the Department of Radiology at the School of Medicine. In the two years prior to Stanford, I was at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, where I worked on airborne laser radar systems and was on the core team developing a laser-ultrasound system for medical imaging.

    My interests are at the intersection between medical technology innovation, clinical translation, and business.

  • Robert Downey Boutin

    Robert Downey Boutin

    Clinical Professor, Radiology

    BioDr. Boutin works clinically as a musculoskeletal radiologist interpreting a broad array of diagnostic imaging examinations, most frequently MRI, CT, sonography, and radiography.

    The clinical focus for Dr. Boutin is MRI of joints, bones, and muscles, as well as adding value to routine radiology exams by translating advancements from fields of artificial intelligence and imaging informatics.

    These advancements include enhancing routine imaging exams to help promote physical function, quality of life, and health span in our patients. Because the worldwide population of people > 60 years of age is projected to double by 2050, there is a crucial need for improvements in the accurate and efficient management of derangements associated with biological aging, including osteoporosis, sarcopenia, and visceral adiposity.

    Dr. Boutin is a leader in the field of musculoskeletal imaging. He has served as Chair of the Musculoskeletal Imaging Program Committee for the largest medical meeting in the world (RSNA) and is President-elect of the Society of Academic Bone Radiologists. Core professional values include an emphasis on outstanding quality, compassion, safety, and integrity.

    Dr. Boutin was introduced to Orthopaedics at an early age by his father and older brother -- both orthopaedists. After earning undergraduate and graduate degrees at Stanford University, Dr. Boutin completed advanced fellowship training in Musculoskeletal Imaging at the University of California, San Diego, and worked on the faculty at Harvard Medical School.

    Dr. Boutin is dedicated to excellence in musculoskeletal imaging. Dr. Boutin has written over 100 peer-reviewed articles and textbook chapters. He has also served as Guest Editor for 2 volumes of the 'Orthopaedic Clinics of North America', and volumes of ‘Seminars in Musculoskeletal Radiology’. Dr. Boutin also has served for many years as a Peer Reviewer for premier radiology journals.

    Dr. Boutin is a popular invited lecturer for Continuing Medical Education Courses, such as those at the annual meetings of the 'Radiological Society of North America', the 'International Skeletal Society', the 'Arthroscopy Association of North America', the 'American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons', and the 'International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine'. He is also a repeat lecturer at the prestigious Orthopaedic Imaging course in Davos, Switzerland.
