Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur lab is focused on exploring the role of matrix in disease progression in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), hepatocellular carcinoma and primary sclerosing cholangitis. Our goal is to uncover how biomechanical characteristics of the ECM affect mechano-sensation, and how these pathways could ultimately be targeted. We are also interested in aging and its effects on metabolic pathways and mitochondrial function leading to disease progression in NASH and HCC.
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.
Adjunct Clinical Instructor, Pediatrics - Hematology & Oncology
BioJennifer is a researcher in clinical development of novel therapeutics for hematologic diseases. She has a special interest in bone marrow failure and rare pediatric disorders.
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.
Chi-Ho Ban Tsui
Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine (Pediatric)On Leave from 11/01/2023 To 12/22/2023
BioDr. Tsui completed his medical training at Dalhousie University, Halifax, in 1995 after obtaining his Masters of Science in Pharmacy in 1991. These degrees followed a Diploma in Engineering and Bachelors of Science in both Mathematics and Pharmacy. Dr. Tsui completed his anesthesia residency training at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton in 2000, and he received further experience in pediatric anesthesia at British Columbia Children's Hospital in Vancouver. After 16 years of practice at the University of Alberta Hospital and Stollery Children’s Hospital, Dr. Tsui was recruited to Stanford University in 2016.
Currently, Dr. Tsui is a University Medical Line Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative, and Pain Medicine at Stanford University. In his position as an adult and pediatric anesthesiologist at the Stanford University Medical Center and the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, he specializes in regional anesthesia techniques.
Dr. Tsui is an avid and internationally recognized researcher in many areas of regional anesthesia. During his residency, Dr. Tsui developed an interest in improving the accuracy of epidural catheter placement and was issued a U.S. patent in relation to his research. Dr. Tsui has expanded his research into the use of ultrasound in regional anesthesia, with particular relevance to peripheral nerve block performance. Dr. Tsui is also responsible for development of the E-Catheter catheter-over-needle kit for use during peripheral nerve blocks. The primary objective of his research is to transform regional anesthesia from an “art” into a reliable and reproducible “science” by further exploring the basic scientific and clinical aspects of electrophysiological signal monitoring and integrating this with the latest advances in ultrasound.
Academically, Dr. Tsui received the 2005 John Bradley Young Educator Award from the Canadian Anesthesiologists' Society. This award recognizes his work as a clinical educator, researcher, and anesthesia trainee role model. While in Canada, Dr. Tsui was the only Canadian invited to write a chapter for a prestigious American anesthesia textbook - Clinical Anesthesia (Barash). Dr. Tsui wrote the first textbook on Ultrasound- and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia. It's become the main reference for anesthesiologists who are interested to use ultrasound in regional anesthesia. This work was translated to Korean. Dr. Tsui also co-authored the first pediatric textbook on the subject, the Pediatric Atlas of Ultrasound- and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia. This work has also been translated (Chinese) and received positive reviews. In addition, Dr. Tsui co-authored and edited "Principles of Airway Management" and "Complications in Regional Anesthesia." From 2006 to 2018, Dr. Tsui served on the editorial board of the Canadian Journal of Anesthesia. Dr. Tsui is currently the editor of the journal of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine.
Dr. Tsui has received the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) Clinical Scholar award and has previously received research awards and grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society, AHFMR, and University of Alberta. In 2015, a prestigious award, the CAS Research Recognition Award, was presented by the Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society to Dr. Tsui "in recognition of significant research contributions to regional anesthesia, acute pain management and pediatric anesthesia in Canada and around the world". In 2022, the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) awarded Dr. Tsui, the Distinguish Service Award. This prestigious annual award has been presented to honor persons who have made remarkable contributions to the field of regional anesthesia and pain medicine.
