  • Alison Schroer Vander Roest

    Alison Schroer Vander Roest

    Instructor, Pediatrics - Cardiology

    BioMy research interests are in the field of cardiac mechanobiology, seeking to understand how the mechanical environment in the heart influences cell behavior and cardiac function throughout pediatric development and disease. I completed my PhD at Vanderbilt working with Dave Merryman focusing on fibroblast activation and inflammatory cell recruitment after myocardial infarction. I was excited for the opportunity to pursue postdoctoral training at Stanford, initially under the mentorship of Dr. Beth Pruitt in mechanical and bioengineering and Dr. Jim Spudich in biochemistry. My postdoctoral project has focused on the effect of myosin mutations which cause hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) using human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) derived cardiomyocytes. I have learned techniques for hydrogel micropatterning and quantification of cellular scale forces through traction force and FRET microscopy. I have also participated in many exciting collaborations across Stanford (with Dr. Alex Dunn and Dr. Sean Wu), as well as collaborators at different institutions. My background in biomedical engineering has informed my quantitative and systems-based approach to biological questions, and my current appointment in the medical school working with Dr. Dan Bernstein has provided me with the opportunity to learn more about the realities of clinical care in pediatric cardiology.

  • Anubodh Sunny Varshney

    Anubodh Sunny Varshney

    Affiliate, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other
    Fellow in Medicine

    BioDr. Anubodh Sunny Varshney is an Advanced Heart Failure, Transplant Cardiology, and Mechanical Circulatory Support Fellow at Stanford University. Sunny engages in outcomes and epidemiology research related to cardiogenic shock, mechanical circulatory support, advanced heart failure, and the interactions between drug and device therapies in patients with heart failure. He earned a BS in biomedical engineering (cum laude) at Washington University in St. Louis and MD from The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, where he graduated 1st in his class. He completed residency in Internal Medicine and fellowship in Cardiovascular Medicine at Brigham & Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School, including an NIH T32 research fellowship and a year as the Daniel Pierce Family Fellow in Advanced Heart Disease.

    Sunny also has experience advising multiple medical device, drug, and digital health start-ups and currently serves as an Advisor to Broadview Ventures, a philanthropically-funded venture fund that invests in early-stage companies developing drug and device therapies that have the potential to change standard of care for patients with cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular risk factors, or stroke.

    After fellowship, Sunny plans to pursue a career as a clinical advanced heart failure cardiologist, outcomes researcher, and venture advisor. He intends to combine insights from clinical care and outcomes research to identify persistent unmet medical needs, define benchmark outcomes that next generation technologies should improve upon, and identify target populations for early-stage studies of novel drug and device therapies for patients with heart failure.
