Clinical Associate Professor, Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interest is in the use of molecular, flow cytometric, and cytogenetic methods to understand and characterize hematopoietic neoplasms. In addition, I have medical oversight of clinical laboratory informatics.
Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Breast pathology, renal pathology with tumors, transplant; immunohistochemistry
Bio Dr. Tsai received his undergraduate training at the University of California, Los Angeles (B.S., Biochemistry, summa cum laude), followed by combined medical and graduate training at the University of Southern California (M.D., Ph.D., Biochemistry). He completed anatomic and clinical pathology (AP/CP) residency and hematopathology fellowship at Stanford University, receiving board certification in AP/CP and hematopathology. He has since stayed on as an instructor while doing postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Sean Bendall, Ph.D., with funding from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
His current research focus is in diagnostic uses and implementation of mass immunophenotyping (mass cytometry and multiplexed ion beam imaging), particularly for blood tumors such as lymphomas and leukemias. This includes biomarker development, protocol optimization, quality control, and reducing costs using computational analysis with potential automation through artificial intelligence/machine learning. Combining his diagnostic practice with knowledge of clinical laboratory testing, access to primary patient samples, and postdoctoral work in mass immunophenotyping, he seeks to advance the routine diagnosis of hematopoietic diseases using these emerging technologies.
