Euan A. Ashley
Associate Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular), of Genetics and, by courtesy, of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Ashley lab is focused on the application of genomics to medicine. We develop methods for the interpretation of whole genome sequencing data to improve diagnosis of genetic disease and to personalize the practice of medicine. We also use network approaches to characterize biology. The wet bench is where we take advantage of cell systems, transgenic models and microsurgical models of disease to prove causality of our favorite targets.

Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My current research interests include:
1. Improving outcomes in patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVAD)
2. implementing protocols to improve heart failure outcomes (PI on Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation grant for implementation of a transitional care program at Stanford for heart failure patients)
3. Investigating the relationship between insulin resistance and heart failure
4. Exploring racial/ethnic disparities in cardiovascular disease
William Clusin, MD

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Cardiac action potentials; tissue culture, voltage, clamp technique; role of calcium in ischemia arrhythmias; coronary, artery disease; myocardial infarction.
John P. Cooke, MD, PhD
Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine), Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our translational research program in vascular regeneration is focused on generating and characterizing vascular cells from human induced pluripotential stem cells. We are also studying the therapeutic application of these cells in murine models of peripheral arterial disease. In these studies we leverage our longstanding interest in endothelial signaling, eg by nitric oxide synthase (NOS) as well as by nicotinic cholinergic receptors (nAChR).
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.
