    Masanori Tsubosaka

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Orthopedic Surgery

    BioOver the past 10 years, I have worked in clinical orthopaedic surgery from an emergency to rehabilitation as a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon at Kobe University Hospital. In the Ph.D., I focused on regenerative medicine for cartilage and knee arthroplasty at Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine. Those experiences formulated my clinical and scientific approach to orthopaedic diseases.

    As a research scholar of Orthopaedic Surgery at Stanford Medicine, I research therapy for corticosteroid-associated osteonecrosis using mesenchymal stromal cells.

    In the future, I want to produce new diagnostic and therapeutic methods in orthopaedics, joint reconstruction, regenerative medicine, and rehabilitation. For this purpose, I would like to collaborate with medical device companies and pharmaceutical companies.

  • Chi-Ho Ban Tsui

    Chi-Ho Ban Tsui

    Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine (Adult-MSD)

    BioDr. Tsui completed his medical training at Dalhousie University, Halifax, in 1995 after obtaining his Masters of Science in Pharmacy in 1991. These degrees followed a Diploma in Engineering and Bachelors of Science in both Mathematics and Pharmacy. Dr. Tsui completed his anesthesia residency training at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton in 2000, and he received further experience in pediatric anesthesia at British Columbia Children's Hospital in Vancouver. After 16 years of practice at the University of Alberta Hospital and Stollery Children’s Hospital, Dr. Tsui was recruited to Stanford University.

    Currently, Dr. Tsui is a University Medical Line Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative, and Pain Medicine at Stanford University. In his position as an adult and pediatric anesthesiologist at the Stanford University Medical Center and the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, he specializes in regional anesthesia techniques.

    Dr. Tsui is an avid and internationally recognized researcher in many areas of regional anesthesia. During his residency, Dr. Tsui developed an interest in improving the accuracy of epidural catheter placement and was issued a U.S. patent in relation to his research. Dr. Tsui has expanded his research into the use of ultrasound in regional anesthesia, with particular relevance to peripheral nerve block performance. Dr. Tsui is also responsible for development of the E-Catheter catheter-over-needle kit for use during peripheral nerve blocks. The primary objective of his research is to transform regional anesthesia from an “art” into a reliable and reproducible “science” by further exploring the basic scientific and clinical aspects of electrophysiological signal monitoring and integrating this with the latest advances in ultrasound.

    Dr. Tsui has received the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) Clinical Scholar award and has previously received research awards and grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society, AHFMR, and University of Alberta. In 2015, a prestigious award, the CAS Research Recognition Award, was presented by the Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society to Dr. Tsui "in recognition of significant research contributions to regional anesthesia, acute pain management and pediatric anesthesia in Canada and around the world".

  • Jason Tucciarone, MD, PhD

    Jason Tucciarone, MD, PhD

    Clinical Scholar, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Psychiatry

    BioJason received his bachelors degree in biology and philosophy from Union College. He spent three years as a Post-Baccalaureate IRTA fellow at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke investigating and developing MRI reportable contrast agents to map neuronal connectivity. Following this he entered the Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD) at SUNY Stony Brook University. There he completed a doctoral dissertation in neuroscience under the mentorship Dr. Josh Huang at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. His thesis work employed mouse genetic dissections of excitatory and inhibitory cortical circuits with a focus on the circuitry of chandelier inhibitory interneurons in prefrontal cortex. He trained in psychiatry as a resident physician in Stanford Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences’ research residency track. His research interests include uncovering circuit mechanisms of psychiatric illness such as drug addiction and mood disorders with hopeful applications to novel therapeutics.
