  • Zachary Wagner

    Zachary Wagner

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, General Internal Medicine

    Bio Zachary Wagner's research applies economic theory and econometrics to questions relating to global health policy, with an emphasis on improving health related behaviors in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. He has 16 peer reviewed publications in leading health policy and medical journals such as The BMJ, Health Affairs, Clinical Infectious Disease, and the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. His work has been featured in an array of news outlets including the Los Angeles Times, Vox, and MSNBC. His areas of expertise include community health workers, HIV/AIDS, child diarrhea, maternal and child nutrition, private sector health care, and health insurance for the poor. Zach has led multiple randomized controlled trials in East Africa and quasi-experimental impact evaluations in India. He earned a PhD in Health Economics from UC Berkeley and a master’s degree in international development from UC San Diego.

  • Soichi Wakatsuki

    Soichi Wakatsuki

    Professor of Photon Science and of Structural Biology

    Bio Soichi Wakatsuki is a Professor of Photon Science at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory where he recently initiated the Biociences Division, and Professor of Structural Biology, Stanford School of Medicine. He received his B.S and M.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering from University of Tokyo, and his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from Stanford University in 1991. After postdoctoral studies on time-resolved x-ray crystallography of enzyme reactions in Oxford (1990 to 1994), he moved to Grenoble, France in 1994 to work at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) where he led Joint Structural Biology Group to develop high-brilliance x-ray crystallography beamlines and instruments, as well as several structural biology projects on protein transport. In 2000, Soichi moved back to Japan to start a new Structural Biology Research Center at KEK (High Energy Accelerator Research Organization), Tsukuba, Japan, and later served as Director of Photon Factory (national synchrotron radiation facility) from 2006 to 2012. There he further developed x-ray beamlines and a large scale protein crystallization system, led initiatives to start three national projects on structural proteomics. Fascinated by new research opportunities in integrative bioimaging at Stanford and the world’s first hard x-ray free electron laser (XFEL) at SLAC, Soichi returned to Stanford in 2013. Soichi’s research interests include structural biology of post-translational modification and vesicle transport, structural biology of polyubiquitin recognition, synchrotron radiation and XFEL instrumentation, protein crystallography and small angle X-ray scattering, integrative multi-scale bioimaging.
