    Lei Stanley Qi

    Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and of Chemical and Systems Biology

    BioDr. Lei Stanley Qi is Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering, Department of Chemical and Systems Biology, and a faculty fellow in Stanford ChEM-H. He is one of major contributors to the CRISPR technology development for genome engineering. He demonstrated the first use of the nuclease-deactivated Cas9 (dCas9) for genome targeting in cells. Using dCas9, His lab developed the CRISPR interference (CRISPRi) and CRISPR activation (CRISPRa) technologies for gene expression regulation, which is broadly used for high-throughput study of genomics in different organisms. He co-developed the CRISPR application for chromatin imaging in living cells. His lab greatly expanded the CRISPR toolbox for engineering the genome and epigenome, including multiplexed epigenome editing, programmable 3D genome manipulation (CRISPR-GO), live-cell imaging (LiveFISH), and CRISPR antivirals for targeting RNA viruses (PAC-MAN). He obtained B.S. in Physics from Tsinghua University, and Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California Berkeley in 2012. He joined UCSF as Systems Biology Faculty Fellow between 2012 to 2014, and joined the faculty at Stanford University since 2014. His lab combines genome engineering with synthetic biology to understand the function of mammalian genomes and develop gene therapy.

    Michael Quach, MD

    Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    BioI am a board certified psychiatrist in San Jose, CA with over 14 years of clinical experience. I specialize in Men's Mental Health. My practice focuses on assisting adult male professionals who are struggling with mental health issues.

    I completed my medical training at Stanford University School of Medicine and my Psychiatric Residency at Stanford Hospital and Clinics. I was Chief Resident in the Stanford Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and recipient of the prestigious Stanford George Gulevich Humanistic Medicine Award in 2006.

    I currently serve as Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford University in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. I feel privileged and honored to be part of the Stanford Adjunct Clinical Faculty and to teach the brightest and most dedicated Stanford Medical Students over the past 12 years.

    I am board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN), and I am a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association (FAPA). I am also an active member of the Northern California Psychiatric Society (NCPS), the California Psychiatric Association (CPA), the American Psychiatric Association (APA), and Lifetime Member of the Stanford Alumni Association (SAA).
