Associate Professor (Research) of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Reproductive and Stem Cell Biology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe thread of Ariadne that connects germ cells, preimplatation development and pluripotent stem cells is the focus of my research, with a specific interest in human development. My long-term goals are: 1. Understanding the biology of germ cells and and their ability to sustain early preimplantation development; 2. Understanding the mechanisms that regulate very early cell fate decisions in human embryos; 3. Understanding the biology of derivation and maintenance of Pluripotent Stem Cells
Professor of Radiology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsScintigraphic evaluation of coronary blood flow and myocardial function using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET). Tumor imaging and characterization of pulmonary nodules with PET/CT.
Zachary M. Sellers, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Gastroenterology)
BioI am a pediatric physician-scientist striving to advance cystic fibrosis clinical care and translational research. Clinically, I am focused on gastrointestinal manifestations of cystic fibrosis, developing diagnostic and therapeutic modalities to improve the gastrointestinal and liver health of those with cystic fibrosis. I also specialize in the clinical management of pediatric pancreatitis and am involved with the international INSPPIRE consortium to study pediatric pancreatitis. My research spans the entire spectrum across basic science and translational research to clinical research and trials. In the laboratory, my projects are centered around understanding mechanisms of ion transport in cystic fibrosis tissues and determining how loss of CFTR ion transport leads to pathologic changes in human physiology. We are also very interested in the pathophysiological relationship between pancreatitis and intestinal diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease. Our laboratory has expertise in epithelial ion transport, with specialized skills in the measurement of bicarbonate transport. We are also part of a Multi-PI collaboration pursuing CFTR gene editing and stem cell engraftment for the treatment of cystic fibrosis. We utilize a combination of immortalized and primary cell culture, organoids, mouse and human tissue, and whole animal in vivo studies.
Instructor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
BioDr. Kinya Seo's primary research focus is on the determinants of myocardial function in the normal and diseased heart toward the goal for developing new therapies for heart failure. On a technical level, he possesses an unparalleled range of skills in molecular and cell biology, biomedical engineering, and model organisms research. He received his graduate training at the University of Tokyo, where he studied cardiac mechanics, electrophysiology, and computer simulation to investigate the mechanisms of arrhythmias induced by mechanical stimuli. After he received Ph.D., he moved to Baltimore to work in the laboratory of Dr. David Kass at Johns Hopkins University. He extended his skills and expertise toward the understanding of the pathogenesis of cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure with special focus on the influence of mechanical stimuli. After postdoctoral training, he went back to Japan working at Jichi Medical University as an assistant professor, where he developed intravital imaging technologies for cardiovascular events. These skills will allow him to extend his studies from cells to organs, and to human to perform translational study for heart diseases.
Nigam H. Shah, MBBS, PhD
Professor of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics) and of Biomedical Data Science
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe analyze multiple types of health data (EHR, Claims, Wearables, Weblogs, and Patient blogs), to answer clinical questions, generate insights, and build predictive models for the learning health system.
Rajan Lalit Shah
Affiliate, Medicine - Med/Cardiovascular Medicine
BioDr. Rajan Shah is a cardiac electrophysiologist concentrating on the treatment of arrhythmias, especially those of complex origins. He prides himself on delivering personalized attention, compassion, and high-quality care to optimize the needs of his patients with abnormal heart rhythms. His experiences in Detroit, where he was raised, exposed him to a wide range of beautiful cultures and backgrounds, and solidified his decision to pursue a career focused on the wellbeing of people.
He completed his sub-specialty fellowship at Stanford University where he received 2 years of highly specialized training dedicated to the treatment of genetic arrhythmia syndromes and management of complex heart rhythm disorders. Dr. Shah continues his profession at Stanford Health Care and is grateful for the opportunity to care for a diverse population, employing his expertise in state-of-the-art therapies including minimally-invasive catheter ablation (ex: ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation) and device implantation (ex: conduction system and leadless pacing) to better the health outcomes of his patients with various arrhythmias. In his clinical role, Dr. Shah additionally directs the East Bay Familial Inherited Arrhythmia Clinic concentrated on the tailored-treatment of genetic arrhythmia syndromes and the prevention of sudden cardiac death in individuals and families.
