  • Philip S. Tsao, PhD

    Philip S. Tsao, PhD

    Professor (Research) of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our primary interests are in the molecular underpinnings of vascular disease as well as assessing disease risk. In addition to targeted investigation of specific signaling molecules, we utilize global genomic analysis to identify gene expression networks and regulatory units. We are particularly interested in the role of microRNAs in gene expression pathways associated with disease.

  • Michael David Tseng

    Michael David Tseng

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery

    Bio Michael D. Tseng, MD is an orthopedic spine surgeon who has served the East Bay, Tri-Valley and San Francisco Bay Area for over a decade. After years in private practice, he was recruited to join the Stanford University School of Medicine faculty. He is currently the Spine Section Chief at Stanford Health Care-ValleyCare.

    Dr. Tseng completed his undergraduate training at the University of Michigan, where he earned a degree in Biochemistry with Honors. He then went on to receive his MD at Cornell University in New York, NY. He completed his internship and orthopedic surgery residency at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. He then completed a spinal surgery fellowship at UCSF, where he worked with both orthopedic spine and neurosurgery faculty.

    Dr. Tseng has been an investigator in basic science, biomechanical and clinical research projects. He has presented at national and international spine conferences and published work in peer reviewed spine journals. He is a reviewer for the Spine Journal.

    As a fellowship-trained spine surgeon, Dr. Tseng treats a comprehensive range of injuries and conditions of the spine, including injuries to the neck and back.

    He believes in a conservative approach to treatment and always considers using nonoperative methods before recommending surgery. When surgery is necessary, he uses a caring bedside manner to form a joint treatment plan with his patients. He believes that well-informed patients have the best outcomes. His mission is to empower you with tools for functionality and wellness.

    He approaches surgery with a “minimalist” approach, doing the least surgery possible to achieve his patient’s objectives. When appropriate, he is skilled using the latest motion sparing surgical techniques such as microsurgical decompression, dynamic stabilization and artificial disc replacement. He has completed advanced training in cervical disc replacements.

    Dr. Tseng is fortunate to work with Christopher Hydock, PA-C, an exceptional and experienced Physician Assistant.

    When Dr. Tseng is not seeing patients, he stays active through personal fitness, running, and golf. He also enjoys cooking and music.

  • Richard Tsien

    Richard Tsien

    George D. Smith Professor, Emeritus

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests We study synaptic communication between brain cells with the goal of understanding neuronal computations and memory mechanisms. Main areas of focus include: presynaptic calcium channels, mechanisms of vesicular fusion and recycling. Modulation of synaptic strength through changes in postsynaptic receptors and dendritic morphology. Signaling that links synaptic activity to nuclear transcription and local protein translation. Techniques include imaging, electrophysiology, molecular biology.

  • Angela Tsiperfal

    Angela Tsiperfal

    Affiliate, Medicine - Med/Cardiovascular Medicine

    Bio Angela Tsiperfal is a Nurse practitioner and one of the Lead APPs at Stanford Healthcare and currently manages the team of electrophysiology nurse practitioners. She has been practicing in Cardiac Electrophysiology for over 18 years and is a pioneer of the Electrophysiology APP program at Stanford. She has led the change in practice of having the electrical cardioversion procedures be done by nurse practitioners independently. She communicated this change in practice to the HRS community through a podium abstract presentation at HRS and at the AHA scientific sessions, with a manuscript currently in progress. Angela previously published an ECG case presentation regularly in the Progress in Cardiovascular Nursing Journal and was a co-editor of the book, Cardiac Arrhythmia Management: A Practical Guide for Nurses and Allied Professionals. Angela has a mastery of the clinical knowledge of electrophysiology and CIED management with recent renewal of her IBHRE CCDS certification.

  • Chi-Ho Ban Tsui

    Chi-Ho Ban Tsui

    Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine (Adult-MSD) at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Bio Dr. Tsui completed his medical training at Dalhousie University, Halifax, in 1995 after obtaining his Masters of Science in Pharmacy in 1991. These degrees followed a Diploma in Engineering and Bachelors of Science in both Mathematics and Pharmacy. Dr. Tsui completed his anesthesia residency training at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton in 2000, and he received further experience in pediatric anesthesia at British Columbia Children's Hospital in Vancouver. After 16 years of practice at the University of Alberta Hospital and Stollery Children’s Hospital, Dr. Tsui was recruited to Stanford University.

    Currently, Dr. Tsui is a Medical Center Line (MCL) Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Stanford University. In his position as an adult and pediatric anesthesiologist at the Stanford University Medical Center and the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, he specializes in regional anesthesia techniques.

    Dr. Tsui is an avid and internationally recognized researcher in many areas of regional anesthesia. During his residency, Dr. Tsui developed an interest in improving the accuracy of epidural catheter placement and was issued a U.S. patent in relation to his research. Dr. Tsui has expanded his research into the use of ultrasound in regional anesthesia, with particular relevance to peripheral nerve block performance. Dr. Tsui is also responsible for development of the E-Catheter catheter-over-needle kit for use during peripheral nerve blocks. The primary objective of his research is to transform regional anesthesia from an “art” into a reliable and reproducible “science” by further exploring the basic scientific and clinical aspects of electrophysiological signal monitoring and integrating this with the latest advances in ultrasound.

    Dr. Tsui has received the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) Clinical Scholar award and has previously received research awards and grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society, AHFMR, and University of Alberta. In 2015, a prestigious award, the CAS Research Recognition Award, was presented by the Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society to Dr. Tsui "in recognition of significant research contributions to regional anesthesia, acute pain management and pediatric anesthesia in Canada and around the world".

  • Jason M Tucciarone

    Jason M Tucciarone

    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Psychiatry

    Bio Jason received his bachelors degree in biology and philosophy from Union College. He spent three years as a Post-Baccalaureate IRTA fellow at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke investigating and developing MRI reportable contrast agents to map neuronal connectivity. Following this he entered the Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD) at SUNY Stony Brook University. There he completed a doctoral dissertation in neuroscience under the mentorship Dr. Josh Huang at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. His thesis work employed mouse genetic dissections of excitatory and inhibitory cortical circuits with a focus on the circuitry of chandelier inhibitory interneurons in prefrontal cortex. He is currently a resident physician in Stanford Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences’ research residency track. His research interests include uncovering circuit mechanisms of psychiatric disorders with hopeful applications to novel therapeutics.
