    Irene Pachon Angona

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Gastroenterology

    Bio I studied Pharmacy in the University of Seville, in the south of Spain. After that, I realized one first MSc in Molecular Biology, at CEA in Grenoble (France), and finally I decided to specialzed in Medicinal Chemistry with another MSc at the University Grenoble Alpes (France).
    In 2019, I received my Ph.D. in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Franche-Comté in France. My work in the laboratory of Prof. Lhassane Ismaili focused on the synthesis of multi-targeting ligands, using the Ugi and Hantzsch multicomponent reaction, to target different factors involved in Alzheimer’s disease as potential therapeutics. I joined Prof. Glenn lab at Stanford University where I am interested in the synthesis of broad-spectrum antivirals that target the host PI-kinases.

    Michele Lanpher Patel

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    Bio Michele ("Shelley") L. Patel, PhD is a postdoctoral fellow in cardiovascular disease prevention at the Stanford Prevention Research Center. She completed her undergraduate studies at Duke University in 2010, receiving a BA in Psychology and a certificate in Markets & Management. Dr. Patel received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from Duke in 2018 and completed her clinical psychology internship at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, specializing in behavioral medicine.

    Primary Research Interests:
    -- Conducting and evaluating digital health interventions for obesity
    -- Improving engagement in self-monitoring and other behavioral intervention strategies
    -- Examining the impact of psychosocial factors (e.g., health literacy, stress) on treatment success

    New research: Patel, M. L., Wakayama, L. N., & Bennett, G. G. (2021). Self-monitoring via digital health in weight loss interventions: A systematic review among adults with overweight or obesity. Obesity. https://doi.org/10.1002/oby.23088

  • Bibek Paudel

    Bibek Paudel

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Sean N Parker Center for Allergy & Asthma Research

    Bio I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Biomedical Data Science. My research focuses on developing machine learning and statistical models to solve problems that are inter-disciplinary in nature, including those from the biomedical, ecological, and socio-political sciences. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Zurich, Switzerland in 2019, where I developed new algorithms to improve recommendation diversity and algorithmic fairness. I used graph theory, deep learning, and latent-factor models to build documents representations, explainable knowledge base embeddings, and personalization systems. At Stanford, I am building new machine learning models for personalized medicine by combining biological domain knowledge and large heterogeneous datasets. My research spans both ends of the biomedical data spectrum: from single-cell observations to population health data. I am particularly interested in examining the disparate health impacts of environmental factors on vulnerable and minority populations and in understanding how these findings can guide policy interventions.

  • Edward Anhoa Pham

    Edward Anhoa Pham

    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Gastroenterology

    Bio My interest in medicine and research was triggered by my mother’s battle with chronic hepatitis C, which made me realize the transformational power of biomedical research in treating patients. Therefore, my career goal is to become a physician scientist in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology dedicated to translating discoveries in the laboratory into novel medical treatment modalities. My research focus is alterations in phosphoinositides signaling and its pathogenesis in cancers of the hepatobiliary and luminal GI tract with the goal to identify novel targets for therapeutic intervention. I also have a particular interest in understanding the interface between chronic viral infection and cancer through studying how the innate and adaptive immune system are perturbed in chronic viral infections
