    Celina Yong, MD, MBA, MSc

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)

    BioCelina Yong, MD, MBA, MSc is Director of Interventional Cardiology at the Palo Alto VA Medical Center and an Assistant Professor in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford. Dr. Yong completed her medical training at Stanford School of Medicine and her internal medicine residency at the University of California, San Francisco. She completed her cardiology and interventional cardiology fellowships at Stanford, including serving as Chief Fellow. As a Marshall Scholar, she completed a Masters in Health Policy, Planning and Financing from the London School of Economics and an MBA from Oxford.

    Dr. Yong’s current research focuses on understanding and reducing inequities in cardiovascular care for patients, as well as resolving gender imbalances in the medical profession itself. She is actively involved in clinical trials of novel devices for percutaneous coronary and structural intervention, and performs structural and coronary interventions at the Palo Alto VA Hospital.

    audrey yoon

    Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Sleep Medicine

    BioDr. Audrey Yoon is a dual trained orthodontist and pediatric dentist who specializes in sleep medicine and esthetics. She practices the full scope of non-surgical and surgical orthodontics from pediatric to geriatric population for airway management including growth modification, pediatric palatal expansion, customized Miniscrew-Assisted Rapid Palatal Expansion (MARPE), Distraction Osteogenesis Maxillary Expansion (DOME), Orthodontic treatment for Maxillomandibular Advancement ( MMA ), clear aligner therapy and oral appliances for sleep apnea.
    She completed her orthodontic and pediatric dentistry residencies at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). She also earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery and Master of Science degree, completing extensive research in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) at UCLA. She is an adjunct assistant professor of Stanford Sleep Medicine Center at Stanford University, an honorary assistant professor of Orthodontics at the University of Hong Kong, an adjunct assistant professor in Orthodontics at University of Pacific and a clinical associate faculty at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. She is also a co-director of Pediatric Dental Sleep Mini-residency program at Tufts University.
    She has introduced on a pioneering technique, performing maxillary distraction osteogenesis for the treatment of OSA and has co-authored chapters on this subject in several leading textbooks. She has created an interdisciplinary rotation program between Stanford Sleep Surgery and the University of Pacific Orthodontic Residency Program and is a co-founder of pediatric dental sleep medicine residency at Tufts University.
    Currently her active areas of research include craniofacial growth modification, customized distractor designs, surgery-first approach of maxillomandibular advancement surgery technique, and the genomic study to identify genetic anatomical factors relating to OSA.

    Senior Research Scientist-Physical, Rad/Radiological Sciences Laboratory

    BioApproximately $635B is annually spent in managing nearly 40 million chronic pain patients in the U.S., but treatments are only effective 30% of the time. This unsuccessful pain-relief outcome is in part due to our inability to pinpoint peripheral pain generators. For example, structural abnormalities detected by conventional MRI or CT are often unrelated to pain, leading to unnecessary treatments and poor outcomes at a high medical expense. My current research aims to develop accurate imaging markers of musculoskeletal pain generators to provide reliable evidence for perioperative pain management. My current research projects include 1) the adoption of PET to track molecular processes directly associated with pain generation such as hypermetabolic inflammation or upregulated pain-signaling, 2) the development of high-resolution 3D quantitative MRI to visualize and characterize the myelin and axonal damage of peripheral nerves, and 3) the implementation of advanced MRI techniques to correct artifacts near metallic joint implants for facilitating the early detection of painful post-surgical complications.
