Lei Stanley Qi
Associate Professor of Bioengineering
BioDr. Lei Stanley Qi is associate professor in the Department of Bioengineering, a faculty fellow in Stanford ChEM-H, and a Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator. Dr. Qi is one major contributor to the development of CRISPR technologies for genome engineering. He developed the first use of nuclease-deactivated Cas9 (dCas9) for sequence-targeted gene regulation in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. His lab invents a broad CRISPR toolbox for manipulating the human genome, including technologies for gene regulation (CRISPRi and CRISPRa), epigenome engineering, live cell DNA/RNA imaging (LiveFISH), 3D genome manipulation (CRISPR-GO), CRISPR antivirals for SARS-CoV-2 (PAC-MAN), and miniature CRISPR (CasMINI) for gene therapy. His lab combines synthetic biology with genome engineering to study the function of the genome and develop novel gene therapy. He obtained B.S. in Physics from Tsinghua University, Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California Berkeley, and was a UCSF Systems Biology Faculty Fellow. He joined the faculty at Stanford University in 2014.
Susan Ruyu Qi, MD
Masters Student in Clinical Informatics Management, admitted Summer 2021
BioSusan Ruyu Qi, MD, is an Ophthalmology Resident (PGY4) from Canada currently at Stanford for a Master of Science program in Clinical Informatics Management. She is passionate about innovation in medicine, particularly the role of Artificial Intelligence in the field of ophthalmology. She was Editor in Chief of one of the first Medium publications dedicated to AI in Healthcare back in 2017.
In her spare time, she has completed the Machine Learning Certificate from Stanford on Coursera and is pursuing an online MBA program at Quantic School of Business. In residency, her research interest focused on Immediately Sequential Bilateral Cataract Surgery (ISBCS), Topography-guided LASIK outcomes, and the clinical trial of a novel retinal oximetry device, Zilia Ocular.
Having grown up in Montreal, Canada and China, she is fully fluent in English, French and Mandarin Chinese, and works occasionally as a medical translator. She holds a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree from Université de Montréal.
