Nick joined the Clinical Investigator Pathway at Stanford University in 2005, served as the Division's Chief Cardiovascular Fellow in 2007, prior to joining the faculty. His academic interests focus on pathological vascular processes such as atherosclerosis, vessel inflammation, endothelial cell dysfunction, smooth muscle cell physiology and aneurysm formation. In particular, he is interested in investigating the genetic mechanisms of heritable cardiovascular diseases as well as translational Vascular Medicine. Nick is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases and Vascular Medicine. Nick's biosketch.
Fouzia is the clinical trial coordinator for all Stanford Vascular Medicine research studies. She received her MD from Dow University of Health Sciences in Karachi, Pakistan where she previously performed clinical research with OB/GYN patients. Fouzia joined the translational and clinical research team in 2012, and is involved in studies of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), critical limb ischemia (CLI), vascular physiology and vascular regeneration. She works closely with the clinical team to screen and enroll study patients, conducts follow-up by questionnaires and performs study related tests/exams. She also is involved in the regulatory and budgeting process for the different clinical studies. In her free time, Fouzia likes to spend time with her family, including her son and twin daughters.
Elsie is an Assistant Professor Surgery (Vascular) and Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research) at Stanford University. She previously undertook advanced postdoctoral research training in the Stanford Vascular Biology T32 program. She completed her B.A. in Human Biology at Stanford University and received her M.D. from Stanford University School of Medicine. During her medical school career she received a Masters of Health Policy, Planning and Financing from the London School of Economics with the support of a United Kingdom Fulbright Grant. She is now a K-award recipient and is using advanced data mining techniques and big data approaches to predict outcomes in patients with peripheral vascular disease.
Eri is a Vascular Medicine specialist and Clinical Associate Professor in the Vascular Surgery Division. She obtained her MD and PhD from Tokyo Women’s Medical University and completed a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery training in Japan. She did her post-doctoral research at UCSF prior to completing an Internal Medicine residency at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York and Lankenau Medical Center in Pennsylvania. Eri joined Stanford University in 2015 following a Vascular Medicine fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. She is board certified in Vascular Medicine, Internal Medicine (US) and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (Japan).
Eri is involved in translational research and her most current interests includes using m-health to diagnose, treat and prevent disease. After work, you will find her experimenting with vegetarian recipes, playing the violin and training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Prior to joining Stanford, Tom was an NIH KL2 Clinical Scholar at the Scripps Research Translational Institute/TSRI in San Diego where his work focused on translational genomics and vascular disease. He completed his Internal Medicine residency at Scripps Clinic and is now pursuing fellowship in Vascular Medicine. Outside of work Tom loves spending time with his wife Whitney and dog Nashville, watching live music, traveling and sports.
