Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Neurology and Neurological Sciences
Bio Christian received his Bachelor’s Degree at the University of California, Berkeley, where he developed his initial interest in functional brain imaging at the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute with the D’Esposito Lab. He later attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for his graduate studies and obtained his Doctorate Degree in the Neurosciences focusing on frequency analysis of the intrinsic low-frequency oscillation of the resting-state in populations of aging and ischemic stroke using rs-fMRI.
Currently, Christian is interested in the characterization of cortical system disruption in Parkinson’s disease population, in terms of functional network interactions and dynamics of the network connectivity.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Arthropod-borne viruses are emerging and re-emerging infections that are spreading throughout the world. Our laboratory investigates the epidemiology of arboviral infections, focusing on the burden of disease and the long-term complications on human health. In particular, Dr. LaBeaud investigates dengue, chikungunya, and Rift Valley fever viruses in Kenya, where outbreaks cause fever, arthritis, retinitis, encephalitis, and hemorrhagic fever. Our main research questions focus on the risk factors for arboviral infections, the development of diagnostic tests that can be administered in the field to quickly determine what kind of arboviral infection a person has, and the genetic and immunologic investigation of why different people respond differently to the same infection. Our long-term goals are to contribute to a deeper understanding of arboviral infections and their long-term health consequences and to optimize control strategies to prevent these emerging infections. Our laboratory also investigates the effects of antenatal and postnatal parasitic infections on vaccine responses, growth, and development of Kenyan children.
My lab at Stanford supports the field work that is ongoing in Kenya, but we also have several projects that are based locally. We strive to improve diagnostics of arboviral infections and are using Luminex technology to build a new screening assay. We also have created a Luminex based platform to assess vaccine responses against multiple pathogens.
