Garrett Chan, PhD, RN
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - General Medical Disciplines
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on palliative care in emergency settings as well as the role development of advanced practice nurses (i.e., nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, certified nurse midwives, and certified registered nurse anesthetists) in the United States and internationally.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - Vascular Surgery
Bio Dr. Chandra earned her B.S. degree, Summa Cum Laude, in Genetics and Cell Biology from the University of Minnesota in 1999. In 2004, she received her medical degree from the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Dr. Chandra completed her General Surgery residency at Stanford in 2011 and is a graduate of the Stanford Biodesign program. She continued on to complete the Stanford Vascular Surgery Fellowship.
Dr. Chandra is a member of SSATHI (Stanford South Asian Translational Heart Institute), as well as WHH (Stanford Women's Hearth Health). She is the co-director of the Stanford Advanced Wound Care Center (AWCC). As the co-director of the Stanford AWCC she is heavily involved in the Stanford Limb Salvage Initiative and has substantial expertise in new and cutting edge peripheral vascular and limb salvage techniques. She is also the associate program director of the Vascular Surgery Fellowship and the Vascular Surgery Medical Student Clerkship Director.
Dr. Chandra's research and clinical interests include women’s vascular health, limb salvage, technology development and treatment optimization for complex open and endovascular approaches to peripheral vascular and aneurysmal disease.
James Chang, MD
Professor of Surgery (Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery) and, by courtesy, of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My role in research is to apply novel advances in tissue engineering and microsurgery to the clinical problems of hand trauma, peripheral nerve injuries, and congenital hand problems. I am interested in developing new tissues and techniques that will allow optimal reconstruction of form and function to those patients requiring reconstructive surgery.

Consulting Associate Professor, Surgery - Vascular Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research laboratory focuses on understanding the mechanics of the cardiovascular system, especially with respect to interactions between medical devices and the dynamic cardiovascular environment. We use medical imaging, 3D geometric modeling, and custom deformation quantification techniques to investigate disease processes and medical device performance. We are interested in the dynamics of the heart, aorta, and peripheral vasculature, and are always seeking ways to apply our research to current and emerging therapies. While our research pursuits seek to add to the fundamental understanding of cardiovascular biomechanics, all of our projects are directly related to improving medical device design, evaluation, regulation, and their use in clinical practice.
