Lei (Stanley) Qi
Associate Professor of BioengineeringOn Leave from 01/01/2023 To 06/30/2023
BioDr. Lei (Stanley) Qi is Associate Professor of Bioengineering, Sarafan ChEM-H, and a Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator. Dr. Qi is a leading contributor to the development of CRISPR technology for genome engineering. His lab created the first nuclease-deactivated Cas9 (dCas9) for targeted gene regulation in cells. His lab has since invented a series of CRISPR technologies, including CRISPRi and CRISPRa for targeted gene regulation, epigenome editing, LiveFISH for real-time cell imaging, CRISPR-GO for 3D genome manipulation, CasMINI as a compact CRISPR system for gene therapy, hyperCas12a for multi-gene engineering, and CRISPR antivirals aimed at treating broad RNA viruses.
With a broad interest in mammalian synthetic biology, Dr. Qi's lab focuses on epigenome engineering, immune cell engineering, directed evolution, and novel gene therapy. Additionally, they actively investigate the functional role of the human noncoding genome in immunology and neurobiology. Dr. Qi earned his B.S. in Physics and Math from Tsinghua University and Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He was a UCSF Systems Biology Fellow. He joined the faculty at Stanford University in 2014.

Yushen Qian, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
BioDr. Qian is a board-certified radiation oncologist and a clinical assistant professor in the Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Radiation Oncology.
In his clinical practice, he specializes in urologic, head and neck, and thoracic cancers, but treats a broad spectrum of cancers including lymphoma, gastrointestinal, and brain tumors. For each patient, he develops a comprehensive, compassionate care plan customized to individual needs. His goal is to deliver the most effective cancer treatment to help patients enjoy the best possible health and quality of life.
In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Qian has conducted extensive research that is often focused on the impact of radiation therapy on patient outcomes and health care system costs.
He has presented the findings at annual meetings of the American Radium Society, American Society for Radiation Oncology, American Society of Clinical Oncology Cancer Survivorship Symposium, Palliative Care in Oncology Symposium, and elsewhere.
Dr. Qian has published articles in journals such as Clinical Cancer Research, the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Practical Radiation Oncology, the International Journal of Radiation Oncology • Biology • Physics (IJROBP), and more.
Dr. Qian co-authored the chapter on radiation therapy for liver tumors in the book Radiation Therapy for Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Clinical Data. He also co-authored the chapter on liver care for the book Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy.
He has earned numerous honors, including the Malcolm A. Bagshaw Award for leadership and outstanding scientific achievement.
