  • Ansuman Satpathy

    Ansuman Satpathy

    Assistant Professor of Pathology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab works at the interface of immunology, cancer biology, and genomics to study cellular and molecular mechanisms of the immune response to cancer. In particular, we are leveraging high-throughput genomic technologies to understand the dynamics of the tumor-specific T cell response to cancer antigens and immunotherapies (checkpoint blockade, CAR-T cells, and others). We are also interested in understanding the impact of immuno-editing on the heterogeneity and clonal evolution of cancer.

    We previously developed genome sequencing technologies that enable epigenetic studies in primary human immune cells from patients: 1) 3D enhancer-promoter interaction profiling (Nat Genet, 2017), 2) paired epigenome and T cell receptor (TCR) profiling in single cells (Nat Med, 2018), 3) paired epigenome and CRISPR profiling in single cells (Cell, 2019), and high-throughput single-cell ATAC-seq in droplets (Nature Biotech, 2019). We used these tools to study fundamental principles of the T cell response to cancer immunotherapy (PD-1 blockade) directly in cancer patient samples (Nature Biotech, 2019; Nat Med, 2019).

  • Albert Tsai, M.D., Ph.D.

    Albert Tsai, M.D., Ph.D.

    Assistant Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Bio Dr. Tsai received his undergraduate training at the University of California, Los Angeles (B.S., Biochemistry, summa cum laude), followed by combined medical and graduate training at the University of Southern California (M.D., Ph.D., Biochemistry). He completed anatomic and clinical pathology (AP/CP) residency and hematopathology fellowship at Stanford University, receiving board certification in AP/CP and hematopathology. As an instructor, he performed clinical diagnostic duties on the hematopathology service while doing postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Sean Bendall, with funding from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.

    His current research focus is in diagnostic uses and implementation of mass immunophenotyping (mass cytometry and multiplexed ion beam imaging), particularly for blood tumors such as lymphomas and leukemias. This includes biomarker development, protocol optimization, quality control, and reducing costs using computational analysis with potential automation through artificial intelligence/machine learning. Combining his diagnostic practice with knowledge of clinical laboratory testing, access to primary patient samples, and postdoctoral work in mass immunophenotyping, he seeks to advance the routine diagnosis of hematopoietic diseases using these emerging technologies.

    His clinical diagnostic duties are on the hematopathology service, primarily in the diagnosis of lymphomas, leukemias, and other hematopoietic diseases from blood, bone marrow, and tissue samples.

  • Kitch Wilson

    Kitch Wilson

    Instructor, Pathology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I'm interested in both basic and translational cardiovascular biology, regenerative medicine and genomics. Much of my work merges next generation sequencing (NGS) with iPS cell models to find and characterize primate-specific elements within the noncoding genome (lncRNAs, transposable elements, enhancers). Some of these primate elements appear to regulate heart development, disease and even evolution, and with the enormous growth in pluripotent cell technologies their functions can now be experimentally studied. In translational work, I'm developing custom targeted NGS assays for identifying the DNA mutations that underlie cardiomyopathies and other heart diseases.
