    BioI am a postdoctoral researcher from Tehran, Iran. I joined Dr. Shirit Einav's lab in September 2021. The focus of my research is on screening, characterization, and enhancement of inhibitors of Numb-Associated Kinases (NAK) and lipid kinases which are involved in the viral life-cycle of pathogens such as Dengue virus (DENV), Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis Virus (VEEV) and SARS-CoV-2 with the hope of finding broad spectrum antiviral chemicals. I am also interested in discovering the targets/substrates for these kinases and their mechanism of action during viral infections.

    My PhD dissertation under Dr. Stephanie Seveau's supervision at The Ohio State University was focused on the role of fetal placental macrophages in mother-to-fetus transmission of listeriosis. My master’s thesis at Qazvin University of Medical Sciences in Qazvin, Iran, was on a modified derivative of rotavirus toxin NSP4 as a candidate for vaccine production. I enjoy doing translational research that can be used as a stepping stone toward development of therapeutics to battle human diseases.
    My hobbies are: Learning foreign languages, cooking, traveling, exploring food from different cultures, and inventing new cocktails with tequila!

    Fun fact: To do research at Stanford, I moved by driving 2,500 miles across the country from Columbus, Ohio to San Jose, California, and had the greatest road trip of my life!

    BioI’m a medical doctor and clinical epidemiologist, currently working as a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University focusing on digital health, computer science and artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine. My research goals are integration and practical application of computer science and artificial intelligence (AI) methods in medicine to produce new knowledge and deepen understanding of health-related issues, which ultimately aims to improve patient-care and decrease disease burden.

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiovascular Medicine

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAdrian M. Bacong, PhD, MPH is a social epidemiologist by training. His research seeks to identify social and structural factors that underlie health inequities by race, ethnicity, and immigration status. Specifically, his work has explored the role of socioeconomic factors in explaining health disparities by immigrant legal status and visa type. Furthermore, Adrian is interested in the effects of immigration on health. He received a NIH F31 award (1F31MD015931-01A1) to examine factors affecting the health of Filipino migrants to the U.S. compared to Filipinos remaining in the Philippines.

    Adrian has also examined the intersections of race, ethnicity, and immigration status among older adults. Finally, Adrian written upon the role of data disaggregation as a method of public health critical race praxis. Currently, Adrian is researching the role of social and policy level factors underlying health disparities among immigrants.

    BioMy research is focused on using preclinical models to develop novel therapies which improve outcomes for patients receiving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Currently, my work aims to establish strategies to reduce the risk of relapse after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation without exacerbating graft-versus-host disease or interfering with donor stem cell engraftment.

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Oncology

    BioMy research is focused on computational and systems biology. My primary research interest lies in developing new computational algorithms and statistical methods for the analysis of complex data in biological systems, especially related to the large-scale single-cell RNA sequencing data. The specific topics I have examined include:
    1. Integration of single-cell multi-omics datasets for tumor
    2. Statistical test of cell developmental trajectories
    3. Visualization and reconstruction of single-cell RNA sequencing data
    4. Computational analysis of the bifurcating event revealed by dynamical network biomarker methods
