    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.

    BioMy research interests thus far have focused on immunology, GI cancers, and improving quality of care for patients. I am passionate about understanding the different genetic and lifestyle factors that are involved in GI cancers and other colonic pathology, as well as improving systems of care to better manage the health and improve the outcomes of patients with these diseases. Towards that end, I have been involved in research in Lynch syndrome in order to bridge the gap between our current understanding of cancer risk in this high-risk population and the creation and implementation of guidelines worldwide. I also had the opportunity to work with collaborators in the International Mismatch Repair Consortium at the Department of Colorectal Medicine and Genetics with the Royal Melbourne Hospital in Australia where I saw firsthand the global efforts in the fight against colorectal cancer. In my current role as a staff gastroenterologist at the VA Palo Alto, I oversee the colorectal cancer prevention program. My goal is to continue to be part of and contribute to collaborative clinical and research efforts in order to provide the best care for our patients.

    Edward Anhoa Pham

    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Gastroenterology
    Fellow in Medicine

    BioMy interest in medicine and research was triggered by my mother’s battle with chronic hepatitis C, which made me realize the transformational power of biomedical research in treating patients. Therefore, my career goal is to become a physician scientist in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology dedicated to translating discoveries in the laboratory into novel medical treatment modalities. My research focus is alterations in phosphoinositides signaling and its pathogenesis in cancers of the hepatobiliary and luminal GI tract with the goal to identify novel targets for therapeutic intervention. I also have a particular interest in understanding the interface between chronic viral infection and cancer through studying how the innate and adaptive immune system are perturbed in chronic viral infections

  • Peter Poullos

    Peter Poullos

    Clinical Associate Professor, Radiology
    Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology

    BioDr. Poullos is a native of Stockton California. He attended Santa Clara University where he earned his BS in Biology. He received his M.D. degree at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, after which he did Internal Medicine residency at the University of California-San Francisco, finishing in 2002. He stayed at UCSF as a Gastroenterology fellow until 2004. However, after a spinal cord injury, he decided to retrain in Radiology. He did his Radiology residency at Stanford University, where he also completed a fellowship In Body Imaging in 2009. Dr. Poullos is now faculty in both the departments of Radiology and Gastroenterology and Hepatology. His clinical practice is at the Stanford University Medical Center, where he interprets CT, MRI, and ultrasound primarily of the abdomen and pelvis. His interests include radiology of the acute abdomen, hepatobiliary imaging, and colorectal cancer screening.

    Dr. Poullos is Founder and Executive Director of the Stanford Medicine Abilities Coalition (SMAC), a group composed of people with disabilities and their allies at Stanford Medicine. He is also a member of the Radiology Department Diversity Committee, the School of Medicine Faculty Senate Subcommittee on Diversity, and the School of Medicine Diversity Cabinet.
