    Cholawat Pacharinsak, DVM, PhD

    Assistant Professor of Comparative Medicine

    BioCholawat Pacharinsak, DVM, PhD Assistant Professor and Director of Anesthesia, Pain Management, and Surgery, at Stanford University’s Department of Comparative Medicine; he is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia (DACVAA). He received his DVM from Chulalongkorn University, Thailand and trained in an Anesthesiology/Pain Management residency program and received his Master's degree at Washington State University. He completed his PhD in Comparative and Molecular Biosciences from the University of Minnesota. Prior to arriving at Stanford, Dr. Pacharinsak was a faculty member in Anesthesiology and Pain Management at Michigan State University and Purdue University; and served as a Clinical Specialist at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. His research focuses on understanding the neurobiology of cancer pain, chemotherapeutic-induced peripheral neuropathy, acute surgical pain models, and methods to improve clinical pain management e.g. sustained release analgesics supporting refinement. Research methodology includes electrophysiologic and behavioral techniques.

  • Irene Pachon Angona

    Irene Pachon Angona

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Gastroenterology

    BioI studied Pharmacy in the University of Seville, in the south of Spain. After that, I didi one first MSc in Molecular Biology, at CEA in Grenoble (France). However, I realized that I was more interested in chemistry. For this reason, I decided to specialzed in Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Innovation with another MSc at the University Grenoble Alpes (France).
    In 2019, I received my Ph.D. in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Franche-Comté in France. My work in the laboratory of Prof. Lhassane Ismaili focused on the synthesis of multi-targeting ligands, using the Ugi and Hantzsch multicomponent reaction, to target different factors involved in Alzheimer’s disease as potential therapeutics. I joined Prof. Glenn lab at Stanford University where I am interested in the synthesis of broad-spectrum antivirals that target the host PI-kinases.

  • Jagannath Padmanabhan

    Jagannath Padmanabhan

    Instructor, Surgery - Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

    BioJagan Padmanabhan, Ph.D. is an Instructor in the Department of Surgery at Stanford University. His research interests lie at the interface of bioengineering and surgery. Jagan works closely with Dr. Geoffrey C. Gurtner, the Inaugural Vice Chairman of Surgery for Innovation at Stanford, to explore the role of mechanoresponsive immune cells in fibrosis, foreign body response, and cancer.

    Jagan is a bioengineer by training (M.Eng., Cornell University, 2011; Ph.D., Yale University 2016), He joined Stanford University as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow (2016-2021) and performed award-winning research developing a novel small animal surgical model that recapitulates human-like foreign body response to biomedical implants. As part of this research, he led a multidisciplinary research effort involving the departments of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Cardiovascular Medicine, Pediatric Surgery, and Neurosurgery at Stanford to create a library of explanted biomedical devices and patient-derived capsule tissue, which he continues to work on as an Instructor. This library will provide an unparalleled resource for the biomedical research community to investigate biomedical implant failure in the future.

    Jagan is also passionate about science education and public engagement with science. Apart from mentoring students in the lab, he teaches STEM courses for high school students in collaboration with Stanford Surgery and the Stanford Pre-Collegiate Institutes every summer. He also runs a blog for scientists, seekers, and skeptics at www.sciencers.org.
