Russell Wade Chan
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Neurology and Neurological Sciences
Bio Russell Wade Chan is a postdoctoral research fellow of Neurology at Stanford University. Dr. Chan received his Bachelor?s degree in Biomedical Engineering and Doctoral degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The University of Hong Kong. He is a Junior Fellow of International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). His research interest is dissecting brain functional networks using neuromodulation (optogenetics) and neuroimaging (functional MRI) methods.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research Focus:
Developing and evaluating imaging techniques to enhance understanding and diagnosis of neurological disorders. My current research focuses on imaging neuroinflammation in neurodegenerative disorders such as stroke, Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis using positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance (MR) techniques.
My previous research topics include investigating the effects of childhood maltreatment and major depressive disorder on brain morphology.
Neurobiology, neuroimaging, PET imaging, MRS/MRI, neuroinflammation, pre-clinical cognitive assessments, cell culture, science communication.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Psychiatry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research aims to understand neural representations and brain networks that support learning and academic achievement across development to bridge the gaps between cognitive and developmental science, neuroscience, and education. I am interested in the interplay between multiple cognitive and affective systems, and neuroplasticity of these systems that give rise to individual differences in how children acquire knowledge and skills in domains important for academic and professional success.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Ophthalmology
Bio Kun-Che (Gary) Chang was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. He obtained his B.S. in Life Science from National Dong Hwa University (Taiwan) in 2006 and his M.S. in Biotechnology from National Tsing Hua University (Taiwan) in 2008. After worked at National Taiwan University for 1 year, he transited to University of Minnesota, Dept. of Pharmacology as a research assistant from 2010 to 2011. He joined the Toxicology PhD program at University of Colorado and was mentored by Dr. J. Mark Petrash at Dept. of Ophthalmology. He obtained his PhD degree in 2015. His PhD thesis focuses on prevention of ocular inflammation. He joined Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg's lab's for his post-doctoral training at Dept. of Ophthalmology, Stanford University in 2016.
Clinical Scholar, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
Bio Prior to a career in medicine, Dr. Chang was an English major and subsequent novelist at night. During the days, he taught literature part-time at Rutgers University, and for extra money, worked in a laboratory in NYC washing test tubes. Inspired by his laboratory mentor, he began volunteering at the hospital next door, and developed a love for interacting with patients. Through this experience, he saw how caring for others could form deep bonds between people - even strangers - and connect us in a way that brings grandeur to ordinary life.
In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Chang is a physician-scientist devoted to advancing the field of cardiovascular medicine. His research has been focused on identifying a new genetic organism that better models human heart disease than the mouse. For this purpose, he has been studying the mouse lemur, the smallest non-human primate, performing cardiovascular phenotyping (vital signs, ECG, echocardiogram) on lemurs both in-bred (in France) and in the wild (in Madagascar) to try to identify mutant cardiac traits that may be heritable - and in the process, characterize the first high-throughput primate model of human cardiac disease.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Orthopedic Surgery
Bio Postdoctoral Scholar in Orthopaedic Surgery at Stanford University. Interested in improving the imaging of the tissues that wear out in and change around the knees in order to develop new outcome measures to test and quantify new therapeutic interventions. Experienced MRI imaging scientist with a demonstrated history working in both research and clinical practice. Strong healthcare services professional with a PhD from the Department of Medicine at Imperial College London. My PhD focussed on developing a methodology for imaging knees on a novel MRI extremity scanner with magic angle directional imaging (MADI). Skilled in Healthcare Information Technology (HIT), Digital Imaging, Image Post Processing, Healthcare, Research Methodology, Musculoskeletal MRI and Healthcare Management. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Technology from Anglia Ruskin University. My first degree was from King's College London where I was first introduced to most imaging modalities, however the first MR image of a mid-sagittal T1 brain never lost its appeal so MRI was what I chose to specialise in. After over 25 years in the field of MRI research I still find plenty of challenges and technological advances for a lifetime of research questions.
