  • Siva Kasinathan

    Siva Kasinathan

    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Rheumatology
    Fellow in Pediatrics - Rheumatology

    BioSiva Kasinathan, MD, PhD is a Clinical Fellow in Pediatric Rheumatology at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford. His graduate research in the MD-PhD program at the University of Washington included the innovation of genome-scale methods for chromatin profiling and generated new insights in centromere biology and gene regulation. During his clinical training in pediatrics at Stanford, Siva continued develop genomic technologies, this time with a focus on single-molecule sequencing. Siva’s research interests span genetics, epigenomics, and immune dysregulation. His ongoing work with Dr. Ansu Satpathy involves developing and applying sensitive new methods for analyzing immunogenetic variation in lupus. As a physician-scientist, Siva is committed combining clinical medicine and basic and translational research to better understand the molecular mechanisms of autoimmunity and autoinflammation to improve outcomes for patients with rheumatic diseases.

  • Manoj Kumar

    Manoj Kumar

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI work on imaging-guided therapy using PET and MR imaging approaches. My academic training and background is in molecular imaging. During my doctoral training, I developed and validated a PET imaging approach for evaluating endocrine therapy responses in advanced breast cancer. My current research focuses on imaging tumor immune markers and responses to cancer immunotherapy. The goal is to develop new imaging toolboxes to monitor and guide treatment. Specifically, I employ antibodies, nanoparticles, and reporter genes for imaging and combinations of therapies to modulate and restore the body's suppressed immune functions against cancer cells. This is being done in collaboration with teams of researchers in early clinical development and teams in clinical practice.

  • Linda (Yu-Ling) Lan

    Linda (Yu-Ling) Lan

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Genetics

    BioLinda Lan, DVM, PhD is a postdoctoral fellow in the Snyder Lab. Her research focuses on understanding long-term illness post-acute infections by using a combination of different types of data (multi-omics) and wearable technologies. Currently, Linda is working on three projects.

    The first project involves studying the shared mechanisms of long COVID, ME/CFS, and PTLDS using smartwatches and micro-sampling. The second project involves examining the role of autoantibodies in long COVID patients and COVID vaccine side effects. The third project involves exploring the changes in the molecular and physiological responses of astronauts during short space flights using multi-omics and wearable devices.

    Linda previously conducted her PhD research at the University of Chicago, where she studied memory B cell responses to a chimeric-based universal influenza virus vaccine candidate. In her leisure time, she enjoys running, hiking, and listening to audiobooks.

  • Matthew Landry

    Matthew Landry

    Member, Maternal & Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI)

    BioCurrent research focuses on identifying the optimal diet (or diets) for chronic disease prevention and addressing the challenges of designing, implementing and reporting clinical trials that test dietary patterns. Particularly interested behavioral interventions that promote plant-forward and plant-based diets. Passionate advocator for policies that address nutrition-related health inequalities particularly in low resource settings and/or with communities experiencing health inequalities related to food insecurity and structural disparities.

    Assistant Professor of Population Health and Disease Prevention at University of California, Irvine (effective July 1, 2023)

  • Jeehee Lee

    Jeehee Lee

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Orthopedic Surgery

    BioDr. Lee is a dedicated researcher in the field of biomedical engineering, driven by a strong desire to help individuals suffering from illnesses. With a particular interest in disease treatment and regeneration, she embarked on her journey in this field. During her doctoral studies, Dr. Lee focused on developing functional biomaterials by leveraging chemical bonding at interfaces. Her expertise in this area led her to successfully create functional medical devices. Currently, as a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University, Dr. Lee is actively involved in drug screening using a bone-mimicking 3D in vitro cancer model that utilizes biomaterials. Her research is centered around the utilization of biomaterials to develop innovative approaches for tuning the communication between cells and biomaterials. By advancing in the field of biomaterials, Dr. Lee aims to facilitate a better understanding of cell-biomaterial interactions, with the ultimate goal of improving healthcare outcomes. With her passion for cutting-edge research and her commitment to the development of biomaterials, Dr. Lee is dedicated to making significant contributions to the field and shaping the future of healthcare.

  • Brittany Elizabeth Matheson, PhD

    Brittany Elizabeth Matheson, PhD

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    BioBrittany Matheson, PhD, is a clinical assistant professor and licensed clinical psychologist in the Eating Disorders Clinic. She completed her undergraduate degree at Duke University, doctorate from the Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology at San Diego State University and the University of California, San Diego, and APA clinical internship at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford/Children’s Health Council. Dr. Matheson's research interests include examining the psychosocial, neurocognitive, and familial factors related to disordered eating and excess weight gain in youth. In particular, Dr. Matheson has research and clinical expertise in the interplay among obesity, disordered eating, and autism spectrum disorder. She is interested in the development and implementation of evidence-based treatments for youth with disordered eating as well as better understanding factors that influence pediatric bariatric surgery outcomes. Her research also focuses on the use of technology to enhance treatment and reduce access to care barriers.
