    Amrapali Zaveri

    Postdoctoral Research fellow, Biomedical Informatics

    Bio Dr. Amrapali Zaveri is a postdoctoral researcher at the Biomedical Informatics Department at Stanford University. Her research interests include data quality, knowledge interlinking and fusion, biomedical and health care research. As part of her research, she investigated the various aspects concerning data quality with special emphasis on linked data. In the process, she conducted a comprehensive survey of the existing data quality assessment methodologies currently available to evaluate the quality of linked datasets. She has also performed experiments on using crowdsourcing mechanisms to assess the quality of Linked Data sources. She has also been actively involved in the Semantic Web community by acting as a guest co-editor of the special issue on Linked Data Quality in the International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems, co-organizing a workshop on Linked Data Quality at ESWC 2015. She is currently a guest co-editor of a special issue in the Semantic Web Journal on Quality Management of Semantic Web Assets (Data, Services and Systems), co-organizer of the 3rd edition of the Linked Data Quality Workshop to be held at ESWC 2016 and co-chair of the Research & Innovation track of the SEMANTiCS 2016 conference. She has also won the Outstanding Reviewer Award of 2015 from the Semantic Web Journal.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I hope you have a happy day with your research!

    Nephrology (postdoc 2013-current)

    Diabetes causes kidney disease in 40% of the patients, and people don`t know which gene(s) causes the differential susceptibility to kidney disease. By using modern biotechnology such as microarray, I aim to identify the genes that cause diabetic kidney disease. These genes may become biomarkers for early diagnosis or new therapeutic targets for treatments. My expertise includes primary cell isolation and flow cytometry, IHC/IF (paraffin and frozen), WB/qPCR, establishing ELISA methods, chromatography, cell culture, animals/i.v. injection/hydrodynamic injection. I have a 3-year postdoctoral fellowship from Larry L. Hillblom Foundation.

    Cancer (Ph.D 2009-2013)

    Late diagnosis of cancer often causes death due to metastasis. By establishing ELISA method to detect a new cancer marker, I aim to detect cancer early so that the doctors can eliminate death. This new cancer marker and ELISA method are patented or under patent application. I further studied the biological function of this cancer marker to discover a new therapeutic target.

    Communication facilitator (2014-current)

    A scientist needs communications to promote their research. I learned scientific communication in Stanford Leadership in Communication (workshop), and later become a facilitator in the workshop to coach beginners.
