Rajesh Dash, MD, PhD, Medical & Scientific Director, SSATHI
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on imaging cell signaling in the heart. I am developing molecular imaging probes that track to injured heart tissue, such that non-invasive imaging techniques, like cardiac MRI, can visualize these probe signals in real-time. The translational goal of my research is to develop new ways to detect early cardiac injury before permanent damage occurs, so that preventive medical therapy can be started.
Tami Daugherty, MD
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Daugherty is a transplant Hepatologist with full-time clinical responsibilities. She is particularly interested in the natural course and management of recurrent Hepatitis C after liver transplant, and the effect of immunosuppression on HCV recurrence.
Sean P. David, M.D., D.Phil.
Associate Professor of Medicine (General Medical Disciplines) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research examines genetic influences on smoking with an emphasis on pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics. Current work is translating pharmacogenetic results from clinical trials for bupropion and nicotine replacement therapy into a new clinical trial of genetically-tailored smoking cessation therapy in primary care and medical education. Genome-wide association data and functional neuroimaging complement this work by identifying new molecular targets to advance the state of the scienc
Eric J. Daza
Postdoctoral Research fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Practical causal inference for personalized health interventions, self-experimentation, n-of-1 trials, precision medicine, Asian-American and Filipino-American health, and gut-microbiome research. Longitudinal missing-data methods. Reproducible or replicable study designs.
Nicole De Jesus
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Cardiovascular Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Multidisciplinary and multimodal approach to understanding the role of myocardial inflammation in cardiac electrophysiology, structural and electrical remodeling, and the molecular mechanisms underlying lethal ventricular arrhythmias.
Additionally, targeting inflammation as a novel anti-arrhythmic strategy.
Vinicio de Jesus Perez MD
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My work is aimed at understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the development and progression of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). I am interested in understanding the role that the BMP and Wnt pathways play in regulating functions of pulmonary endothelial and smooth muscle cells both in health and disease.
