Connor Galen O'Brien
Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Cardiovascular Medicine
Bio Dr. O'Brien is a native of Menlo Park, CA. He attended medical school at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. At Columbia he was elected to both Alpha Omega Alpha and Gold Humanism Honors Societies. He completed an Internal Medicine residency as well as fellowship in Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford University. In his third year of fellowship, he was selected Chief Cardiology Fellow.
He is currently a post-doctoral fellow performing regenerative medicine research, specifically studying the role of exosomes in treating cardiomyopathy. In addition to his basic science research, he is also involved in human clinical trials investigating the role of stem cells in treating various forms of cardiomyopathy.
Ivie Oghogho Okundaye
Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Nephrology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests women's health, pregnancy, fertility in CKD
John Paul Oliveria
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Currently working on unraveling the mechanisms of Alzheimer's disease progression and resilience utilizing mass cytometry (CyTOF) and high-dimensional imaging (multiplexed ion beam imaging - MIBI).
Previously worked on evaluating the role of immune cells in allergic pathogenesis (IgE+ B cells, regulatory B cells or Bregs, basophils, type 2 innate lymphoid cells, eosinophils).
Collaborated on research projects with a few research groups, which include:
- The Hospital for Sick Children, Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Pediatric Research Academic Initiative in SickKids Emergency (PRAISE) Program
- McMaster Children's Hospital, Division of Urology and the Clinical Urology Research Enterprise (CURE) Program
- St. Joseph's Healthcare Center Hamilton, Division of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery
Research interests include:
- The immunobiology and pathophysiology of allergic diseases (allergic asthma, allergic rhinitis)
- The role and function of regulatory B cells in disease (autoimmunity, inflammation, cancer)
- The role of immune cells (B cells, T cells, eosinophils, basophils) in the pathogenesis of disease
- Single cell analyses and 'omics' technologies including: RNAseq, CyTOF, flow and imaging cytometry
- Translational immunology, clinical drug development and clinical trials, "big data", and machine learning
- Effectiveness of active learning in undergraduate and graduate level education

Marcela C. Otero
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Psychiatry
Bio Dr. Otero is an Advanced Postdoctoral Fellow at the Sierra Pacific Mental Illness Research Education and Clinical Center (MIRECC) at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, jointly affiliated with the Stanford University School of Medicine. Upon earning a B.A. in Psychology from Cornell University, she was awarded the NIH Post-Baccalaureate Intramural Research Training Award and completed a research fellowship in the Unit on Affective Neuroscience at the National Institute of Mental Health, where she conducted research on cognitive and affective processing in generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder. She earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Science at the University of California, Berkeley. Her graduate research, partly supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, investigated emotional reactivity and regulation in neurodegenerative disease using physiological and behavioral methodologies, and subjective self-report. Her secondary line of research examined the adverse effects of patient socioemotional deficits on caregiver mental health, and the association between positive interpersonal processes and long-term marital satisfaction. Dr. Otero’s current research interests include identifying the cognitive and affective mechanisms underlying emotion dysregulation in late-life psychopathology, particularly anxiety and depression, and the development of behavioral interventions aimed at promoting wellbeing in Veterans and their loved ones.
