Precision Health and Anesthesia for the San Francisco Bay Area and Beyond
We are an anesthesiology research lab using basic science and translational techniques to study the impact of genetic variants on anesthesia and surgery. Our specific interest is studying perioperative organ injury. We also are investigating how genetic variants, such as ALDH2*2, impact exposures to alcohol and e-cigarettes.
Stanford University is in Santa Clara County where 34% of our population is Asian. Our studies ultimately will provide precision medical care for this population while also providing insight into basic biological mechanisms to unlock novel strategies to impact care for people of all ethnicities.
