  • Hong Zheng

    Hong Zheng

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Biomedical Informatics

    BioMy research focuses on big data in genomics and precision medicine.

    I integrate and interpret multiple omics datasets (whole-genome, whole-exome, RNA-Seq, single cell RNA-Seq, methylome, etc.) to understand the genetic and genomic basics of diseases.

    I am proficient in several programming languages (R, Python, Linux/Bash, and Perl), statistical analysis, machine learning methods, data visualization, Docker, and cloud computing.

  • Han Zhu

    Han Zhu

    Instructor, Medicine

    BioDr. Zhu is a general cardiologist with specialized clinical and research training in cardio-oncology and cardio-immunology. She focuses on the cardiovascular care of patients undergoing therapies for cancer, with a particular focus on the effects of immunotherapies on the heart. She completed clinical cardiology fellowship and internal medicine residency training at Stanford University School of Medicine. During her post-doctoral training, Dr. Zhu’s research focuses on myocarditis, cardiac inflammation, and the effects of cancer therapeutics on the cardiovascular system. Her current research employs clinical data, bio-banked samples, and animal models to study T-cell toxicities in the heart. Dr. Zhu's clinic sees cardio-oncology and cardio-immunology patients and focuses on devising new methods for minimizing cardiovascular complications in the cancer patient population.

  • Thomas Zikos

    Thomas Zikos

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology

    BioI am initially a Pittsburgh, PA native, but have been at Stanford University since 2012 for residency, fellowship, and now as faculty. It is exciting to be affiliated with one of the most dynamic and innovative medical institutions worldwide.

    My clinical and research interests focus on functional, motility, and esophageal disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. Outside of this sub-sub specialization, a significant portion of my practice is also devoted to the care of a broad range of “general gastroenterology” concerns.

    Functional, motility, esophageal, and general gastroenterology disorders are very common, and can cause significant disability. Some examples include irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia, gastroparesis, chronic nausea, chronic constipation, achalasia, and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

    Despite the common nature of these disorders, many are not well understood, leading to frustration among both patients and clinicians alike. Furthermore, there is an incorrect stigma associated with some of these disorders that “it is all in your head.” On the opposite side of the spectrum, there is sometimes an incorrect assumption that we will be able to pinpoint an exact underlying cause in all cases, but this is not possible with current technology. We aim to bridge this gap using the latest diagnostic testing and treatment paradigms, as well as a healing hand. Additionally, our group is actively engaged in multiple research projects and studies to drive the future of the field.

    Though I am early in my career, I am hoping that by the end the field will look nothing like it does today. I am hopeful, and I believe that we can revolutionize the field to better characterize gastrointestinal disorders, and come up with highly effective targeted treatments.
