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.

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.
