    J Kenneth Salisbury, Jr.

    Professor (Research) of Computer Science and of Surgery (Anatomy), Emeritus

    Bio Salisbury worked on the development of the Stanford-JPL Robot Hand, the JPL Force Reflecting Hand Controller, the MIT-WAM arm, and the Black Falcon Surgical Robot. His work with haptic interface technology led to the founding of SensAble Technology, producers of the PHANToM haptic interface and software. He also worked on the development of telerobotic systems for dexterity enhancement in the operating room. His current research focuses on human-machine interaction, cooperative haptics, medical robotics, and surgical simulation.

  • Nazish Sayed MD, PhD

    Nazish Sayed MD, PhD

    Assistant Professor (Research) of Surgery (Vascular Surgery) and at the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute

    Bio Nazish Sayed, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery, Division of Vascular Surgery and The Stanford Cardiovascular Institute. Dr. Sayed earned his MD degree from the University of Mumbai, India and his PhD degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (Rutgers New Jersey Medical School). He has a Master’s degree in Molecular Biology from Montclair State University. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship in cardiovascular and regenerative medicine in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford University followed by an Instructor position at the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute.

    Dr. Sayed’s research has focused on the development of novel technologies that drive innovation in regenerative medicine, disease modeling, and drug testing in vascular biology. He performs translational research in vascular biology and aims to understand the role of the vasculature in the development of cardiac diseases, including those due to inherited genetic variants or environmental insults such as type 2 diabetes or hypertension. His lab employs the human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology to generate patient-specific vascular cells (endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cells) as an alternative to animal models providing a human tissue surrogate for research that is scalable and sustainable. By employing this unique platform, his lab also investigates the role of chemotherapeutic agents (anti-cancer drugs) on the vasculature. Dr. Sayed’s lab has also established an endothelial regeneration program, where they leverage the innate immune system to regenerate endothelial cells from human fibroblasts (skin cells). His work has led to seminal discoveries in the areas of 1) Nitric oxide (NO) biology, (2) vascular biology, (3) stem cell biology, (4) cardiovascular disease modeling (5) cardio-oncology.

    Dr. Sayed has received numerous awards including the ATVB Young Investigator Award by the American Heart Association and Jay D. Coffman Young Investigator Award by the Society of Vascular Medicine. He has been a recipient of the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship and the AHA Scientist Development Grant. His lab is funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH), National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute K-award.
