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). She also is the co-director of the Stanford Wound Care Center (opening May 2014) and the Vascular Surgery Medical Student Clerkship Director.
Dr. Chandra's research interests include women’s vascular health, radiation safety, technology development and treatment optimization for complex open and endovascular treatment of peripheral vascular and aneurysmal disease.
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.

Walter Clifford Chidester and Elsa Rooney Chidester Professor of Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Vascular biology, arterial remodeling, aneurysm development; innovative treatment strategies for AAA, animal models of arterial disease, arterial remodeling and flow changes in spinal cord injury, genetic regulation of arterial aneurysm formation
E. John Harris Jr.
Professor of Surgery (Vascular) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in thrombosis and the role of thrombin and its receptor in venous wall remodeling following venous thrombosis. I am also interested in vascular hemodynamics and the use of ultrasound, MRI and computational modeling in evaluating arterial flow in exercise conditions.
Jason T. Lee
Associate Professor of Surgery (Vascular Surgery) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Lee is the Principal Investigator on several clinical trials examining new therapeutic strategies for management of cerebrovascular disease, claudication and limb salvage, renovascular hypertension and aortic aneurysm disease.
Dr. Lees clinical interests include:
Endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms
Endovascular lower extremity procedures
Thoracic outlet syndrome
Vascular disorders in high-performance athletes
Surgical Education and Simulation
Assistant Professor of Surgery (Vascular Surgery) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Mell's research interest focus on comparative effectiveness of health care delivery for complex surgical diseases, including optimizing outcomes and cost effectiveness.
Dr. Mell's clinical interests include all aspects of vascular surgery, with a special emphasis on surgery for complex aortic disease, including endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Christopher K. Zarins
Walter Clifford Chidester and Elsa Rooney Chidester Professor of Surgery, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hemodynamic factors in atherosclerosis, pathogenesis of, aortic aneurysms, carotid plaque localization and complication, anastomotic intimal hyperplasia, vascular biology of artery wall, computational fluid dynamics as applied to blood flow and vascular disease.
Professor of Surgery (Vascular Surgery) at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Zhous vascular research laboratory focuses on molecular mechanisms of and treatment strategies for intimal hyperplasia. Her specific clinical research interests are re-stenosis following endovascular interventions and outcome measures following carotid interventions. Through collaboration with Stanford investigators and investigators at Baylor College of Medicine, plaque morphology and radiographic imaging are correlated. Furthermore, innovational treatment approaches for cardiovascular diseases are investigated using a well-developed wire-injury rodent model. She is also the principle invetigator for several clinical trials that are funded by AHA and industries examining outcomes following cerebrovascular, aortic, and lower extremity interventions.
