Instructor, Medicine - Infectious Diseases
BioDr. Arjun Rustagi is an Instructor in Medicine. He is a graduate of the University of Washington Medical Scientist Training Program and Stanford's Internal Medicine Residency and Infectious Diseases Fellowship.
He is dedicated to understanding the early immune responses to infections, and the methods pathogens use to persist despite these responses, in order to inform new prevention and treatment strategies. He studies viral pathogenesis and immunity with Dr. Catherine Blish, under whose mentorship he set up the respiratory viral biosafety level 3 (BSL3) program at Stanford in early 2020 in order to study SARS-CoV-2, contributing to several projects in SARS-CoV-2 virology including a study of intact in vitro lung tissue infection. He also protocoled the first peripheral immune profiling study of severe COVID-19. His ongoing interest is in the full spectrum of in vitro respiratory viral models, particularly those that recapitulate lung epithelium and mucosal immunity.
