  • Marina Magalhães

    Marina Magalhães

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neonatal and Developmental Medicine

    BioMarina N. Carvalho Magalhães is a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Suzan Carmichael’s lab in the Division of Neonatal and Developmental Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, School of Medicine. Her overall research goals are to improve health outcomes and advance maternal and infant health equity. Dr. Magalhães is a nurse by training in newborn critical care with a background using clinical research methods, particularly to support nutrition and optimize health outcomes of preterm, very low birthweight (VLBW) infants. Her doctoral research found that personalizing lactation support via biomarker-based text messages during early postpartum is feasible and may prolong lactation among mothers of critically ill infants. This experience, along with the growing maternal health crisis and research silos separating maternal and newborn health, led her to pursue postdoctoral training in perinatal epidemiology. Her current research centers on the health of women and childbearing people by using population-level data to investigate the causes of adverse perinatal health outcomes (i.e. severe maternal morbidity).

  • Devin Malloy McCauley

    Devin Malloy McCauley

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Adolescent Medicine

    BioDevin McCauley earned his PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from The Pennsylvania State University in 2021, where his research applied intensive longitudinal methods and time-varying effect modeling to investigate family, school, and peer influences on adolescent mental health and well-being. A second focus of his research applies a developmental framework in study of adolescent e-cigarette use. He is particularly interested in identifying sociodemographic (e.g., race/ethnicity, sexual identity) disparities in risk factors for e-cigarette use. His long-term goal is to inform, develop, and evaluate family and school-based prevention programs which support healthy adolescent development and address health disparities related to e-cigarette use.

  • Karthik Menon

    Karthik Menon

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiology

    BioKarthik Menon is a postdoctoral scholar in the Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computation Laboratory at Stanford University, advised by Alison Marsden. His current research involves the development of computational methods for accurate patient-specific cardio­vascular blood flow simulations and uncertainty quantification. He graduated with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 2021, where his doctoral work focused on the flow physics of fluid-structure interactions. His broad research interests include fluid mechanics, computational modeling and data-driven methods.

  • Dhriti Nagar

    Dhriti Nagar

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neonatal and Developmental Medicine

    BioPremature birth is a leading cause of developmental and neuropsychiatric disorders in children. One of the factors causing these defects is lowered levels of available oxygen (hypoxia) in the newborn due to immature lungs. My research focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying hypoxia-induced developmental disorders of the nervous system due to preterm birth.

  • Aluya  Oseghale, PhD

    Aluya Oseghale, PhD

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Stem Cell Transplantation

    BioMy primary goal is to develop an independent research career in hematology. As an African from a family background afflicted by hereditary hematologic disorders, I have longed to be part of research efforts to develop better treatments for blood diseases. My doctoral research focused on sickle cell disease where I conducted a preclinical investigation of a novel derivative of butyrate as a drug candidate for ameliorating the complications of the illness (Oseghale AR et al. Blood Cells Mol Dis. 2019 Jul 9;79:102345). My current focus as a postdoctoral scholar, in the Porteus laboratory, is to use CRISPR/Cas9 for genomic modification of human primary cells for curative therapeutic applications. A major aim of my project is to develop an automated closed system for the manufacturing of CRISPR/Cas9-engineered chimeric antigen receptor-expressing (CAR) T cells.

  • Andrea Pedroza Tobias

    Andrea Pedroza Tobias

    Postdoctoral Scholar, General Pediatrics

    BioDr. Andrea Pedroza is a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford Impact Labs and the Department of Pediatrics in the Partnerships for Research in Child Health Lab. She earned a Ph.D. in Global Health from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and a Master of Science in Nutrition from the National Institute of Public Health in Mexico (INSP). Her research focuses on generating evidence for interventions and policy recommendations aimed at improving the dietary quality of children to impact their health and development. Currently, she is employing a community-engaged approach to design nutrition interventions and policy recommendations that aim to reduce the consumption of ultra-processed foods among low-income children to narrow the gap in health disparities.

  • Alireza Raissadati

    Alireza Raissadati

    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Cardiology
    Fellow in Pediatrics - Cardiology

    BioAlireza Raissadati, MD, PhD is a fellow in pediatric cardiology at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, Stanford. He obtained his medical degree, PhD in medicine, and PhD in biotechnology from University of Helsinki. His research focused on population-based long-term outcomes of patients following congenital heart surgery and the role of vascular growth factors and gene vectors as management strategies for heart transplant rejection.

    Dr. Raissadati completed his pediatric residency training at Boston Children's Hospital/Harvard Medical School and Boston Medical Center in Boston, MA. His clinical interest lies in treating pediatric patients with heart failure and following heart transplantation. His research is focused on understanding the intricacies of heart transplant rejection to find new therapeutic targets for acute rejection and coronary artery vasculopathy of the heart transplant.
