Eric Andrew Appel
Assistant Professor of Material Science and Engineering and, by courtesy, of Bioengineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The underlying theme of the Appel Lab at Stanford University integrates concepts and approaches from supramolecular chemistry, natural/synthetic materials, and biology. We aim to develop supramolecular biomaterials that exploit a diverse design toolbox and take advantage of the beautiful synergism between physical properties, aesthetics, and low energy consumption typical of natural systems. Our vision is to use these materials to solve fundamental biological questions and to engineer advanced healthcare solutions.
Annelise E. Barron
Associate Professor of Bioengineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Biophysical mechanisms of host defense peptides (a.k.a. antimicrobial peptides) and their peptoid mimics; also, molecular and cellular biophysics of human innate immune responses.
Audrey (Ellerbee) Bowden
Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and of Bioengineering
Bio Our lab seeks to develop and deploy novel tools for optical imaging and sensing at the microscale and nanoscale. Our work finds applications both in the clinic and for basic science research; we also have particular interest in the development of low-cost, portable technologies suited for use in poorly resourced environments.
Associate Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Structural Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Molecular motors lie at the heart of biological processes from DNA replication to vesicle transport. My laboratory seeks to understand the physical mechanisms by which these nanoscale machines convert chemical energy into mechanical work.
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Camarillo Lab is currently instrumenting Stanford athletes with inertial sensors to investigate the mechanism of concussion. Additionally, the lab is researching cell mechanics for regenerative medicine. We are developing a quantitative, noninvasive and early measure of viability in order to allow clinicians to transfer the single most viable embryo. Other research area is in medical instrumentation as it pertains to robotic catheterization for curing cardiac arrhythmia.
Professor of Photon Science, Bioengineering and of Microbiology and Immunology
Bio Wah Chiu received his BA in Physics (1969) and PhD in Biophysics (1975) from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a professor in the Department of Bioengineering, Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford University. He is a pioneer in methodology development for electron cryo-microscopy. His work has made multiple transformational contributions in developing single particle electron cryo-microscopy as a tool for the structural determination of molecular machines towards atomic resolution.
For three decades, Dr. Chiu directs a NIH funded 3DEM Resource Center. He has solved many cryo-EM structures including viruses, chaperonins, membrane proteins, ion channels, cytoskeleton protein complexes, protein-DNA complexes, DNA and RNA in collaboration with many scientists around the world. His 3DEM Resource Center continues to establish high standard testing and characterization protocols for cryoEM instrumentation and to develop new image processing and modeling algorithms for cryo-EM structure determination.
Dr. Chiu’s research, collaboration and training efforts have been recognized by his elected membership to the Academia Sinica, Taiwan (2008) and the United States National Academy of Sciences (2012) in addition to several honors including the Distinguished Science Award from the Microscopy Society of America (2014) and the Honorary Doctorate of Philosophy from the University of Helsinki, Finland (2014).
