Bio I'm a research associate in the lab of Prof. David Relman, working on the interplay between the evolution of microbial communities on ecological time scales and horizontal gene transfer.
Masters Student in Computer Science, admitted Autumn 2017
Current Role at Stanford I'm currently working part time for Dr. Kari Nadeau in the Pulmonary and Critical Care department as a bioinformatician - I get lots of awesome immunological data to work with R. My most recent project involves a study on twins, with the goal of correlating environmental factors with variations in cell frequency, serum proteins, and cytokine activation. I am mentored by Dr. Sandra Andorf.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Oncology
Bio I am a bioinformatics scientist working in cancer immunotherapy. Originally trained as a pharmacist, I then did a PhD in machine learning applied to cancer drug screenings. My main areas of interest are: cancer immunotherapy and drug discovery. I am currently developing a reverse translational framework for drug discovery in DLBCL and building an interaction network to capture tumor microenvironment signaling and cell cell interactions. My overarching goal is to develop new immunotherapies for cancer and make the drug development process more efficient, rational and data driven.
Phillip C. Yang, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Yang is a physician-scientist whose research interest focuses on clinical translation of the fundamental molecular and cellular processes of myocardial restoration. His research employs novel in vivo multi-modality molecular and cellular imaging technology to translate the basic innovation in cardiovascular pluripotent stem cell biologics. Dr. Yang is currently a PI on the NIH/NHLBI funded CCTRN UM1 grant, which is designed to conduct multi-center clinical trial on novel biological therapy.

Bio Seema Yasmin is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, poet, medical doctor and author. Yasmin served as an officer in the Epidemic Intelligence Service at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention where she investigated disease outbreaks and was principal investigator on a number of CDC studies. Yasmin trained in journalism at the University of Toronto and in medicine at the University of Cambridge.
Yasmin was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in breaking news in 2017 with a team from The Dallas Morning News and recipient of an Emmy for her reporting on neglected diseases. She received two grants from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. In 2017, Yasmin was a John S. Knight Fellow in Journalism at Stanford University investigating the spread of health misinformation and disinformation during epidemics. Previously she was a science correspondent at The Dallas Morning News, medical analyst for CNN, and professor of public health at the University of Texas at Dallas.
Her writing has earned awards and residencies from the Mid Atlantic Arts Council, Hedgebrook, the Millay Colony for the Arts and others. Her first book, The Impatient Dr. Lange (Johns Hopkins University Press, July 2018) is the biography of an AIDS doctor killed on Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. Her second book, Debunked! Pseudoscience, Medical Myths and Why They Persist, is forthcoming in November 2019. A major title about women is forthcoming from HarperCollins in 2020.
Yasmin’s unique expertise in medicine, epidemics and journalism has been called upon by The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, the Aspen Institute, Skoll Foundation and others.
