    Chris C.S. Hsiung

    Instructor, Pathology

    BioI am a molecular biologist and laboratory medicine physician. I am interested in understanding how cells turn genes on or off, and engineering ways we can turn genes on or off for biological discovery and therapeutic benefit.

    In my postdoctoral work advised by Dr. Luke Gilbert (Arc Institute), I developed multiAsCas12a (multiplexed transcriptional interference Acidaminococcus Cas12a), a new functional genomics platform capable of higher-order combinatorial chromatin targeting of multiple coding and non-coding genetic elements per cell, including in pooled 6-plex CRISPRi screens. I proposed a group testing experimental framework to efficiently survey higher-order combinatorial spaces of genetic perturbations. I applied this approach to discover new enhancer elements and dissect the combinatorial logic of cis-regulatory elements. This work is available as a preprint: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2023.09.18.558350v2

    In my prior work as an MD-PhD student co-advised by Dr. Arjun Raj and Dr. Gerd Blobel at the Univ. of Pennsylvania, I led several studies focused on how gene regulatory information is maintained or altered through mitosis in mammalian cells, using epigenomics methods, single-molecule RNA imaging, and computational analysis.

  • Serena Hu, MD

    Serena Hu, MD

    Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery

    BioDr. Hu is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeon. She is professor and vice chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and (by courtesy) Neurosurgery, and chief of the Division of Spine Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Hu completed her orthopedic surgery residency at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York and her fellowship training in spine and scoliosis surgery at Rancho Los Amigos Rehabilitation Center in Downey, California.

    Dr. Hu has extensive experience helping patients with a range of spinal conditions and injuries. She specializes in treating scoliosis (when the spine curves sideways), kyphosis (when the spine is more bent forward than normal) lumbar spine fractures, spondylolisthesis (when a vertebra moves out of place), disc degeneration, and spinal stenosis (spinal canal narrowing). Dr. Hu draws on her expertise to create a customized care plan for each of her patients.

    Dr. Hu has been the principal investigator in more than a dozen clinical trials and studies. She has been awarded multiple research grants from the North American Spine Society, Scoliosis Research Society, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Her research interests include the effects of preoperative pain medication on surgical outcomes as well as decreasing the risk of complications after spine surgery. She has also studied and tested new technologies that make spine surgery safer and more effective.

    She has published more than 145 articles in dozens of peer-reviewed journals, including Global Spine Journal, Journal of Spine Surgery, Spine, and Spine Deformity. She has written about a range of topics, including quality measures in spine surgery, spinal fusion techniques, spine tumor effects on spine stability and lumbar decompression for spinal stenosis. Additionally, Dr. Hu has written more than a dozen book chapters on spinal cord injuries, spine fractures, pediatric kyphosis, spondylolysis (vertebra fracture), and scoliosis.

    KC Huang

    Professor of Bioengineering and of Microbiology and Immunology
    On Leave from 04/01/2024 To 06/30/2024

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHow do cells determine their shape and grow?
    How do molecules inside cells get to the right place at the right time?

    Our group tries to answer these questions using a systems biology approach, in which we integrate interacting networks of protein and lipids with the physical forces determined by the spatial geometry of the cell. We use theoretical and computational techniques to make predictions that we can verify experimentally using synthetic, chemical, or genetic perturbations.
