Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Bio Jagannath (Jagan) Padmanabhan, PhD is a postdoctoral research fellow in Dr. Geoffrey Gurtner’s laboratory in the Department of Surgery at Stanford University. He is a bioengineer by training (PhD, Yale University 2016) and his research interests lie at the interface of bioengineering, surgery and data science. In Dr. Gurtner's lab, Jagan is exploring the role of mechanical signaling in biomedical implant failure. He also contributes to the development of novel biomaterials for wound healing applications. He uses single cell sequencing, bioinformatics, bioengineering tools, small animal surgical models and clinical specimens to interrogate fibrotic events at the biomaterial-tissue interface and during wound healing.
Jagan is also passionate about science education and public engagement with science. He teaches STEM courses for high school students in collaboration with the Stanford pre-collegiate Institutes every summer. He also runs a blog for scientists, seekers and skeptics at www.sciencers.org.
