Albert Tsai, M.D., Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
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. As an instructor, he performed clinical diagnostic duties on the hematopathology service while doing postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Sean Bendall, 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.
His clinical diagnostic duties are on the hematopathology service, primarily in the diagnosis of lymphomas, leukemias, and other hematopoietic diseases from blood, bone marrow, and tissue samples.

Bio Mindy Tsai is Sr. Research Scientist in the Department of Pathology. She received her D.M.Sc. (Doctor of Medical Sciences) in Oral Biology from Harvard School of Dental Medicine and completed her postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Tsai’s research focuses on studies that are designed to understand the regulation of mast cell and basophil development and to elucidate the roles of these cells in health and disease. Dr. Tsai’s research approaches include in vitro analyses of mast cells and basophils in human and mice, as well as using mouse models of disease to investigate the effector and immunoregulatory functions of these cells in vivo.
