Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe launched a national precision medicine PAD trial called, VascTrac (http://vasctrac.stanford.edu/). This trial is mobile phone based and leverages Apple's ResearchKit Platform to monitor a patient's activity both pre- and post-intervention. We are validating mobile phone surveillance for PAD patients and are currently enrolling.

Jordi Abante Llenas
Postdoctoral Scholar, Biomedical Data Sciences
BioIn 2014 I received my BS in Industrial Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona, where I majored in power electronics and signals. During my undergraduate, I served as the Team Captain of the ETSEIB Formula Student team, where I helped develop the first electric vehicle for the school. After graduating, I went on to obtain an MS from the Electrical & Computer Engineering department at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. There, I joined the Center for Bioinformatics and Genomic Systems Engineering, where I was involved in several computational genomics research projects under Dr. Aniruddha Datta. In 2015, I was awarded the “la Caixa” fellowship to pursue research in computational biology during my Ph.D. as a member of the Goutsias lab, developing computational methods to study epigenetic signatures in close collaboration with the Feinberg lab of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In addition to my research and Ph.D. coursework, I earned an MS focused on statistical learning from the Applied Mathematics & Statistics department at Johns Hopkins University in 2018. After successfully defending my dissertation entitled “Statistical Signal Processing Methods for Epigenetic Landscape Analysis” on May 10 of 2021, I joined Salzman’s lab at Stanford University as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow being awarded the postdoctoral fellowship from the Center for Computational, Evolutionary and Human Genomics.

BioMy research is focused on understanding how place affects health.
To understand why this is both interesting and important you need to know:
(1) Place affects health. Where individuals live, work, go to school shapes their individual health.
(2) Social determinants of health (e.g. income, employment) affect chronic disease behaviors. These include the ability to exercise, access nutritious food, receive mental health care.
(3) Social determinants of health affect chronic disease outcomes (e.g. cardiovascular disease, cancer, or obesity).
(4) Socially marginalized populations including individuals of low socioeconomic status and racially marginalized communities have the highest risk for many chronic disease behaviors and outcomes. This disproportionate risk is largely due to the contextual health influences of the physical and social environment.
Methodologically, I am currently working to develop a specific epidemiologic framework for utilizing electronic health records, survey, and geographic data with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial methods to reduce health disparities among socially marginalized populations. Merging clinical data with data on social determinants of health in a spatial epidemiology framework effectively allows us to ask and answer questions about how place affects health.
Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences
BioOriginally from Caracas, Venezuela, Dr. Carla Abdelnour received her medical degree at the Central University of Venezuela, and then completed her neurology residency training at the University Hospital Príncipe de Asturias in Madrid, Spain. She conducted her doctorate in Medicine at the Autonomous University of Barcelona working with Drs. Dag Aarsland, Javier Pagonabarraga and Jaime Kulisevsky. Her thesis focused on the influence of Alzheimer´s disease copathology in atrophy patterns, longitudinal cognitive decline, and heterogeneity of patients with dementia with Lewy bodies.
Carla´s main interest is the study of neurodegenerative diseases, especially Lewy body disease. As a Sue Berghoff LBD Research Fellow, her plan is to investigate the impact of different comorbidities in the clinical presentation, cognitive profile, and disease progression of Lewy body disease. Additionally, she wants to study the biological underpinnings of prodromal Lewy body disease to identify potential biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis.
Postdoctoral Scholar, Emergency Medicine
BioDr. Ryuichiro Abe was a clinical doctor majoring in Intensive Care Medicine and Anesthesiology. Based on the clinical experiences, he is devoted to basic research for host-bacteria interaction. His research interests focus on improving the diagnosis of bacterial infection with sepsis to treat patients more appropriately and preventing the dissemination of antimicrobial drug resistance.
