    Zhe Cui

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Cardiothoracic Surgery

    Bio Before joining Stanford, I was a research associate at Child & Family Research Institute in British Columbia Children's Hospital, Vancouver, Canada. I have obtained my honors B.MedSc. from the University of Western Ontario with high distinction, and earned a master’s degree in pharmacogenomics from the University of Toronto, and a Ph.D. degree in cardiovascular pharmacology from the University of British Columbia.

    My on-going research at Stanford has a focus on understanding the underlying molecular mechanisms contributing to the progression of thoracic aneurysm and aortic dissection in connective tissue disorders, including Marfan and Loeys-Dietz syndromes, using both transgenic mouse models and a vascular model derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs). I previously developed a novel quantitative analysis of elastin using multiphoton microscopy that could lead to an early diagnostic method of Marfan syndrome. Further, my ultrasound study strongly supports the potential use of doxycycline for the prevention of Marfan-linked aneurysm.

    Seraina Dual

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Cardiothoracic Surgery

    Bio Seraina A. Dual is a postodoctoral fellow at the departments of the Cardiothoracic Surgery at Stanford Medicine and Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, mentored by Prof. Doff McElHinney and Prof. Alison Marsden respectively. She graduated with a bachelor's degree from the Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) in Mechanical Engineering in 20, a master's degree at ETH Zurich in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in robotics and biomedical application with Prof. Roger Gassert, and her Dr. of science at ETH Zurich in Mechanical Engineering with Prof. Mirko Meboldt. During this time, she spent some time with Prof. Ellen Kuhl at Stanford University (Bsc.), with Prof. Theo Chee Leong at National University of Singapore (Msc.), and with Prof. Christopher Hayward at the St. Vincent's Hospital in Sydney (Dsc.). Her work focuses on developing dynamic systems, algorithms, and sensors inspired by her background in engineering and control methodology to either improve our pathophysiological understanding of disease or enable physiological interaction of patients with intelligent medical devices.

  • Rohan Shad Arora

    Rohan Shad Arora

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Cardiothoracic Surgery

    Bio Rohan completed his medical training from the University College of Medical Sciences (Univ. of Delhi), New Delhi. He worked with the departments of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Mount Sinai, NY and Stanford University for his advanced elective rotations. During his medical school years, he worked on designing and developing novel mechanical heart valves making use of computational fluid dynamics methods and additive manufacturing techniques. His work was funded by the Indian government dept. of biotechnology.
