  • Cesar Raudel Padilla

    Cesar Raudel Padilla

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine

    BioDr. Cesar Padilla is a first-generation Mexican American from Northern California. His parents emigrated from the Mexican state of Jalisco, settling in the East Bay Area (Union City) in the 1970s, where they worked in local factories. Cesar would spend every summer of his childhood in Mexico, where his passion and inspiration for becoming a doctor was ignited. After high school, he attended Ohlone Community College in Fremont where he heard about and attended Stanford University's Minority Medical Alliance conference at age 19, inspiring him to pursue medicine. Dr. Padilla is now double fellowship trained from Harvard Medical School in critical care medicine and obstetric anesthesiology, with additional training in critical care echocardiography. His research interests include critical care in obstetrics and addressing inequities in maternal/obstetric care. Dr. Padilla also serves as the Chief Medical Education Advisor for Alliance in Mentorship/MiMentor, a non-profit organization with a mission of mentoring underrepresented students interested in medicine and is the Co-Chair of the inaugural Council of Anesthesiology for the National Hispanic Medical Association. Dr. Padilla is currently a clinical assistant professor at Stanford and hopes to connect, teach, and inspire the next generation of students pursuing medicine.

  • Natalie Pageler

    Natalie Pageler

    Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Critical Care
    Clinical Professor, Medicine - Biomedical Informatics Research

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsIn my administrative role, I oversee the development and maintenance of clinical decision support tools within the electronic medical record. These clinical decision support tools are designed to enhance patient safety, efficiency, and quality of care. My research focuses on rigorously evaluating--1) how these tools affect clinician knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors; and 2) how these tools affect clinical outcomes and efficiency of health care delivery.

  • David T. Paik

    David T. Paik

    Instructor, Cardiovascular Institute

    BioDr. David Paik is an instructor at the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute. At Stanford, his focus is to utilize single-cell omics to elucidate patient-specific mechanisms of various cardiovascular diseases, characterize embryonic heart development, and optimize differentiation of iPSCs to subtypes of cardiovascular cells. Dr. Paik received his BA in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Boston University (2010) and PhD in Cell and Developmental Biology at Vanderbilt University (2015). During his PhD training, Dr. Paik investigated the endogenous cardiac repair mechanisms in the adult heart following ischemic injury such as myocardial infarction, with focus on the role of Wnt signaling pathway on coronary vessel formation and plasticity of endothelial cells during cardiac tissue repair. At this time Dr. Paik completed HHMI/VUMC Certificate Program in Molecular Medicine, where he was supervised by his clinical mentor Dr. Douglas Sawyer to interact with congestive heart failure patients and to bridge clinical sciences with basic and translational cardiovascular research. Since 2016 he has been mentored by Dr. Joseph Wu at the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute. Dr. Paik is currently supported by the NIH NHLBI K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award.
