Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry
BioI'm an NIH T32 Sports Neuroscience Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research working with Dr. Allan Reiss. My research focuses on improving cognitive and physical health outcomes supplemented with fNIRS through programming exercise-based VR/XR experiences, specifically for individuals who struggle with attention regulation.
Professor (Research) of Pathology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAstrocytes make up a substantial proportion of the central nervous system (CNS) and participate in a variety of important physiologic and pathologic processes. They are characterized by vigorous response to diverse neurologic insults.
Barbara Elizabeth Engelhardt
Professor (Research) of Biomedical Data Science
BioBarbara E Engelhardt is a Senior Investigator at Gladstone Institutes and Professor at Stanford University in the Department of Biomedical Data Science. She received her B.S. (Symbolic Systems) and M.S. (Computer Science) from Stanford University and her PhD from UC Berkeley (EECS) advised my Prof. Michael I Jordan. She was a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Matthew Stephens at the University of Chicago. She was an Assistant Professor at Duke University from 2011-2014, and an Assistant, Associate, and then Full Professor at Princeton University in Computer Science from 2014-2022. She has worked at Jet Propulsion Labs, Google Research, 23andMe, and Genomics plc. In her career, she received an NSF GRFP, the Google Anita Borg Scholarship, the SMBE Walter M. Fitch Prize (2004), a Sloan Faculty Fellowship, an NSF CAREER, and the ISCB Overton Prize (2021). Her research is focused on developing and applying models for structured biomedical data that capture patterns in the data, predict results of interventions to the system, assist with decision-making support, and prioritize experiments for design and engineering of biological systems.
Michelle Yixiao Engle, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
BioDr. Michelle Engle grew up in Virginia, though she has also lived in China and Canada. She moved to California for medical training and quickly grew attached to the Bay Area. She is board-certified in family medicine and palliative medicine, providing holistic care to patients of all ages.
Her hobbies include barre, board games, escape rooms, cooking, and rock climbing.
Professor of Pathology and of Medicine (Immunology and Rheumatology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDendritic cells, macrophages, NK cells and T cells; functional proteins and genes; immunotherapeutic approaches to cancer, autoimmune disease, neurodegenerative disease and metabolic disease.
Assistant Professor of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsRegulatory elements in the human genome harbor thousands of genetic risk variants for common diseases and could reveal targets for therapeutics — if only we could map the complex regulatory wiring that connects 2 million regulatory elements with 21,000 genes in thousands of cell types in the human body.
We combine experimental and computational genomics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics to assemble regulatory maps of the human genome and uncover biological mechanisms of disease.
