  • Eric Sun

    Eric Sun

    Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine (Adult-MSD) and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Primary Care and Population Health)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research examines questions of health economics and health policy, with a focus on economics and policy in the perioperative setting. Current research topics include the economics of treatments for chronic pain, as well as how physician practice organization affects outcomes and costs.

  • Han Sun

    Han Sun

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Genetics
    Biostatistician 2, Pediatrics - Endocrinology

    BioHan had been a postdoc with Dr. Steinmetz at the genetics department for five years, working on both cancers and heart diseases, trying to understand the mechanisms linking from variants to disease phenotypes. This led to a few very interesting findings of aberrant splicing regulation, such as splicing-mediated readthrough stabilization (SRS), one more mechanism for oncogene activation in multiple types of cancers, and tissue-specific splicing of a mitochondrial inner membrane protein, suggesting a molecular connection between deficiency in energy-supplying and dilated cardiomyopathy.

    After being a senior computational biologist with Dr. Gloyn, who has been dedicated to the research of type 2 diabetes for decades, Han switched to the field of this multifactorial metabolic disease. It did take some courage to make such a switch at his post-postdoc stage, however, Han has a consistent interest in studying PG&E, which is not pacific gas and electric nearby, but the interaction between phenotype, genotype, and environment. With years of hands-on experience in statistical modeling and the analysis of next-generation sequencing and mass spectrometry data, in addition to a good understanding of disease genetics, cancer biology, and systems biology, Han is highly confident that he will enjoy the adventure and contribute to our understanding of diabetes.

  • Louise Y Sun

    Louise Y Sun

    Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine

    BioDr. Louise Sun recently joined the Stanford University School of Medicine as the Chief of Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology and Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine. She is an Adjunct Scientist at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES) in Toronto. Prior to this, she was an Associate Professor of Anesthesiology and Epidemiology, Director of Big Data and Health Bioinformatics Research at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, and a Clinical Research Chair in Big Data and Cardiovascular Outcomes at the University of Ottawa.

    Dr. Sun received her medical degree from McMaster University. She completed her anesthesiology residency at the University of Ottawa and her Masters of Science in Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, followed by a clinical and research fellowship in cardiac anesthesia at the University of Toronto. She then joined the Division of Cardiac Anesthesiology at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute and was cross appointed as an ICES faculty member.

    Dr. Sun’s areas of clinical focus are hemodynamic monitoring and heart failure. Her methodologic areas of focus are the conduct of population-based cohort studies using large healthcare databases; predictive analytics; sex and gender epidemiology; patient engagement; innovative methods for data processing and warehousing; and software and applications development. Her research leverages big data and digital technology to bridge key gaps in the delivery of care and outcomes for patients with heart failure and/or undergoing cardiovascular interventions, zooming in on sex/gender and personalized care. She holds several patents and collaborates with health authorities and policy makers to evaluate and report on models of cardiac healthcare delivery.

    Dr. Sun is active in the scientific community. She sits on a number of US, Canadian and international editorial boards and scientific and grant review committees, and collaborates nationally and internationally on a variety of population health and data science initiatives. Her patient-centered research program aims to improve access to care and outcomes, focusing on personalized risk stratification and long-term, patient-defined outcomes. She has authored over 100 peer-reviewed papers and published in leading clinical journals including JAMA, JAMA Cardiology, JAMA Internal Medicine, Circulation, JACC, Diabetes Care, and Anesthesiology. Her research program has been well funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, and the Ontario Ministry of Health.

  • Ruopeng (Robin) Sun

    Ruopeng (Robin) Sun

    Physical Sci Res Scientist, Orthopaedic Surgery

    BioDr. Sun is the research scientist at the Wearable Health Lab. He received his Ph.D. in Human Performance from Indiana University, MS in mechanical engineering from Stony Brook University. His research focused on using novel technology to study human movement as a function of aging, promote functional independence and enhance quality of life. He is particularly interested in investigating balance/locomotion control and risk of falling among ambulatory populations and translating novel research findings and technology into clinic/community-based settings to enhance healthy independent aging. His recent work utilized machine learning and augmented reality tools to enhance precise and efficient functional mobility assessment.

  • Ryan R. Sun

    Ryan R. Sun

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Urology

    BioDr. Sun is a board-eligible, fellowship-trained urologist specializing in general urology and endourology. He is a clinical assistant professor of urology at Stanford University School of Medicine. He graduated with Cum Laud from the University of Washington and obtained his medical degree from the University of Toronto. After completing his urology residency at the University of Manitoba, Dr. Sun completed further fellowship training in Endourology at Stanford University School of Medicine.

    Dr. Sun speaks fluent Mandarin and sees patients with a wide spectrum of general urologic diseases of the kidneys, bladder, prostate, and genitalia, with a special focus in complex kidney stone disease and minimally invasive surgery.
