    Kenneth Tran, MD

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - Vascular Surgery

    BioDr. Tran is a fellowship-trained vascular surgeon in the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Division at Stanford Health Care. He is also a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Surgery, Division of Vascular Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine.

    Dr. Tran’s clinical expertise includes the entire spectrum of vascular surgery, including minimally invasive strategies for aortic aneurysm repair and multiple methods of managing peripheral vascular disease. He also specializes in treating cerebrovascular disease (problems with blood flow in the brain) using carotid angioplasty and stenting, transcarotid artery revascularization, and conventional carotid surgery. In addition, Dr. Tran offers comprehensive dialysis access management and treats venous reflux (when leg veins fail to return blood to the heart).

    Dr. Tran has a special interest in minimally invasive techniques for repairing complex aortic conditions using custom stents placed inside blood vessels (endografts). He has expertise in designing, fabricating, and implanting physician-modified endografts tailor-made to each patient’s unique aortic anatomy. This technique expands the ability to offer minimally invasive repair to more patients.

    Dr. Tran’s research efforts focus on utilizing novel computational approaches to better understand and optimize blood flow patterns after complex aortic repair. This work has helped improve the understanding of how different types of aneurysm repair perform long term. Dr. Tran hopes to use these research findings to improve clinical outcomes for patients with aortic aneurysmal disease.

    Dr. Tran has published his work in numerous prestigious peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Vascular Surgery, JAMA Surgery, and the European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery. He has presented at the podium at numerous national and international conferences.

    Dr. Tran has received multiple research awards, including the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Society’s Medtronic Resident Research Award and Best Resident Presentation at the Swiss Society for Vascular Diseases. In addition, he received the Young Researcher Prize at the European Symposium on Vascular Biomaterials for his research related to complex aortic repair hemodynamics (blood flow). Dr. Tran also coauthored a chapter in the book Complications in Endovascular Surgery.

  • Jennifer Tremmel

    Jennifer Tremmel

    Susan P. and Riley P. Bechtel Medical Director and Associate Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Tremmel studies sex differences in cardiovascular disease. Current research projects include evaluating sex differences in coronary pathophysiology, young patients presenting with myocardial infarction, the impact of stress on anginal symptoms, chronic total coronary occlusions, and vascular access site complications.

  • Stephen Tsai

    Stephen Tsai

    Professor (Research) of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Emeritus

    BioProfessor Tsai's research interest is in the development of design methodology of composite materials and structures. As an emerging technology, composite materials offer unique performances for structures that combine light weight with durability. Keys to the successful utilization of composite materials are predictability in performance and cost effective design of anisotropic, laminated structures. Current emphasis is placed on the understanding of failure modes, and computer simulation for design and cost estimation.

  • Philip S. Tsao, PhD

    Philip S. Tsao, PhD

    Professor (Research) of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur primary interests are in the molecular underpinnings of vascular disease as well as assessing disease risk. In addition to targeted investigation of specific signaling molecules, we utilize global genomic analysis to identify gene expression networks and regulatory units. We are particularly interested in the role of microRNAs in gene expression pathways associated with disease.

  • Jason V. Tso, MD

    Jason V. Tso, MD

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine

    BioDr. Tso is a board-certified cardiologist with the Sports Cardiology Program and the Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease. He serves as medical director of the Sports Cardiology Program and is a clinical assistant professor in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine.

    As a noninvasive cardiologist with clinical expertise in sports cardiology, Dr. Tso specializes in treating physically active patients. He cares for recreational weekend warriors, elite and professional athletes, and all those in between.

    He has experience caring for athletes from professional sports teams and multiple National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I universities. Dr. Tso currently performs cardiac screening and consultations for Bay Area professional sports teams and the NCAA Division I athletes of Stanford University Athletics.

    Dr. Tso’s research interests include cardiovascular health and adaptation in athletes. He has spent years studying American-style football players and Masters endurance athletes. He has presented his research at multiple national meetings, including the American College of Cardiology Scientific Sessions, American Heart Association Scientific Sessions, and the national meeting of the Heart Failure Society of America.

    Dr. Tso’s research has been published in multiple peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of the American Heart Association, the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, and the British Journal of Sports Medicine. He also regularly serves as a reviewer for several cardiology and sports medicine journals.

  • Minang (Mintu) Turakhia

    Minang (Mintu) Turakhia

    Clinical Professor, Medicine

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Turakhia has an active clinical research program, with funding from AHA, VA, NIH, the medical device industry, and foundations. His research program aims to improve the treatment of heart rhythm disorders, with an emphasis on atrial fibrillation, by evaluating quality and variation of care, comparative and cost-effectiveness of therapies, and risk prediction. Dr. Turakhia has extensive expertise in using large administrative and claims databases for this work. His TREAT-AF retrospective study of over 500,000 patients with newly-diagnosed AF is the largest known research cohort of AF patients. He has served as study PI or chairman of several prominent single- and multicenter trials in atrial fibrillation, investigational devices for electrophysiology procedures, digital health interventions, and sensor technologies.

    His other research interests include technology assessment of new device-based therapies and the impact of changing health policy and reform on the delivery of arrhythmia care. Dr. Turakhia is a Fellow of the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and Heart Rhythm Society.
