Lei Stanley Qi
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and of Chemical and Systems Biology
Bio Dr. Lei (Stanley) Qi is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and Chemical and Systems Biology at Stanford University, and a faculty fellow in Stanford ChEM-H. He is one of the major pioneers in the CRISPR technology for targeted genome engineering in mammalian cells. Different from most developers of the CRISPR tools, he has developed a series of gene regulation and imaging technologies, including CRISPR interference (CRISPRi), CRISPR imaging, and high-throughput CRISPR screening. He also worked in the fields of Synthetic Biology, and developed methods to generate synthetic noncoding RNA regulators of transcription, translation, and as molecular sensor for chemicals and intracellular proteins. He obtained his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 2012, and performed independent research as a Systems Biology Fellow in the University of California, San Francisco in 2012 to 2014. His lab is currently applying genome engineering and CRISPR technologies for the interrogation of genetic interaction networks related to cell differentiation, proliferation, epigenetic regulation and diseases.

Postdoctoral Research fellow, Psychiatry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in typical and atypical neurodevelopment of human learning and memory, and interaction with stress and emotion. Using a multi-disciplinary approach (integrating cognitive neuroimaging, psychophysiology and genetics), I investigate into how the brain, particularly the medial temporal and prefrontal networks, support learning and memory? How are these memory-related brain systems modulated by emotion and stress? How do these systems operate in individuals with mental disorders?
