Clinical Instructor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The overall goal of my research is to improve recovery from surgery by the single-cell analysis of signaling networks that govern the human immune response to surgical trauma. Using multi-parameter mass cytometry (CyTOF), we monitor with single-cell resolution the immune profile of patients undergoing surgery, and explore the relationships between patients’ immune profiles and post-operative outcomes.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Astrocytes, microglia and neurons interact, and have unique vulnerabilities to injury based on their patterns of gene expression and their functional roles. We focus on the cellular and molecular basis for brain cell injury in stroke. We study gene therapy with heat shock and other protective proteins, the effects of specific microRNAs, changes in mitochondrial function, oxidative stress and inflammation during ischemia. We also model cell death pathways and the effects of Hsp70.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interest is in improving systems practice, often harnessing techniques of medical simulation for training, development, testing, or implementation. Most recently, I have collaborated with Stanford and national colleagues on implementation of emergency manuals (context relevant sets of cognitive aids or checklists), for crisis management of critical events. See http://emergencymanual.stanford.edu and www.emergencymanuals.org with more details below.
