  • David Iberri

    David Iberri

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Hematology

    BioDr. Iberri is a hematologist who specializes in the treatment of multiple myeloma, Waldenström macroglobulinemia, and other blood and bone marrow disorders. He is actively involved in clinical research evaluating novel agents in hematologic malignancies. His research interests include the development and application of biomarkers to select patients most likely to benefit from therapy, and in the development of blood tests to reduce the need for bone marrow biopsies in myeloma disease monitoring.

  • Irogue I Igbinosa

    Irogue I Igbinosa

    Instructor, Obstetrics & Gynecology - Maternal Fetal Medicine

    BioIrogue Igbinosa, MD, is a Maternal-Fetal Medicine physician at Stanford University. She is currently an NIH Women's Reproductive Health Scholar (K12), and her research focus includes iron deficiency anemia in pregnancy, severe maternal morbidity and mortality, and health equity.

    She graduated from the University of Houston and earned her medical degree at Baylor College of Medicine. She subsequently completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at Louisiana State University School of Medicine Baton Rouge. After residency, she was an AAMC-CDC Public Health Policy Fellow able to serve in the CDC Emergency Operations Center and contribute to research for healthcare providers regarding the management of the Zika virus in pregnant persons. She completed her Maternal Fetal Medicine fellowship at Stanford in 2022.

    Dr. Igbinosa is passionate about community-engaged approaches to bridge gaps in evidence-based care for birthing communities and collaborates with local and national policy committees to raise awareness for reproductive justice in maternal health. Her motto is to listen first and serve with compassion.

  • Gentaro Ikeda

    Gentaro Ikeda

    Instructor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine

    BioDr. Ikeda is a physician-scientist who develops innovative diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for patients with cardiovascular disease. Based on his clinical experience as a cardiologist, he has become aware of major clinical shortcomings, specifically in the current pharmaceutical therapies for myocardial infarction (MI) and chronic heart failure (HF). Some evidence-based drug therapies, including β-blockers, ivabradine, and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone antagonists are difficult to apply to critical patients due to adverse side effects. Drugs that have shown efficacy in basic animal experiments have failed to show significant benefits in clinical trials. To address these problems, he moved to academia to conduct translational research. During his graduate training in the Egashira Lab, he focused on drug delivery systems (DDS) that target mitochondria in animal models of MI. He obtained advanced skills in molecular biology, mitochondrial bioenergetics, and animal surgery. He realized the importance of translational research and the great potential of DDS to overcome many clinical problems. He developed nanoparticle-mediated DDS containing cyclosporine for the treatment of patients with MI. He published a first-author paper and received academic awards for his novel science. Since becoming a postdoctoral fellow in the Yang Lab, he has continued to build upon his previous training in translational research. He is currently developing an innovative therapy, namely, extracellular vesicles-mediated mitochondrial transfer for mitochondria-related diseases such as heart failure and mitochondrial disease.

  • Jennifer Ikle

    Jennifer Ikle

    Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Endocrinology and Diabetes

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsJen is interested in the genetic factors that lead to abnormal beta-cell function and insulin secretion, causing disorders such as hyperinsulinism and neonatal diabetes. Jen’s current research focus is the use of zebrafish models, combined with genetics and genomics, to understand cellular and molecular mechanisms of glucose metabolism and elucidate previously unknown players involved in the regulation of insulin secretion.
