Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am currently studying filamentous phage in Pseudomonas infection in cystic fibrosis.
Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics - Pulmonary Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Her scholarly work has been focused on pediatric health in vulnerable communities. Her current research is pulmonary outcomes of patients with neuromuscular disease. She is involved in clinical trials in patients with neuromuscular disease.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Pulmonary Medicine
Bio Dr. Chen is a Clinical Assistant Professor with the Division of Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine. She grew up in the Bay Area and attended undergraduate school at UC Berkeley (Go Bears!). She ventured across the country received her graduate and medical degrees at Boston University School of Medicine. After experiencing cold and snowy winters of the east coast, she returned to the Bay Area where she completed her pediatric residency and pulmonology fellowship at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland. She joined Bay Area Pediatric Pulmonary Medical Group and subsequently the Division of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine at Stanford University in 2015. She then followed her husband and moved to Los Angeles in 2016 where she joined the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology at UCLA as Associate Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Center. A few years later, she decided to return to her roots in the Bay Area. She made her way back to Stanford University and rejoined the pediatric pulmonology group in November 2019. She enjoys caring for children, from infancy and beyond, with pulmonary diseases and developing relationships with their families. Her particular interests include bronchopulmonary dysplasia, asthma, neuromuscular disease, cystic fibrosis, and evaluation of complex airways with bronchoscopy. She also has interest in quality improvement and policy and procedure development.
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Pulmonary Medicine)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in studying the effects of inflammation in the lung, in particular, how N-acetylcysteine may affect and decrease that in CF patients. I am the PI of a multi-center study researching this question. Additionally, in a separate study involving children who have received lung transplants, I am a participating site in an NIH-sponsored observational and mechanistic multi-center study that will examine the role of viral infections in causing chronic graft rejection.
David N. Cornfield
Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine and Professor, by courtesy, of Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Over the past 20 years, the Cornfield Laboratory has focused upon basic, translational and clinical research, with a primary focus on lung biology. As an active clinician-scientist, delivering care to acutely and chronically ill infants and children, our lab focuses on significant clinical challenges and tried to use science to craft novel solutions to difficult clinical problems.
Research Scientist, Pediatrics - Pulmonary Medicine
Bio Mohsen Fathzadeh is a Medical Geneticist and has 20+ years of experience in genomic science applications to advance health in diverse human populations. He conducted his Ph.D. thesis at Yale University, at Lab Prof Arya Mani, where he co-characterized a genetic form of familial Metabolic Syndrome. Since 2015, he has been a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford CV Med, Psychiatry, and PHS and eagerly conducting functional genomic analysis with mentorship from Professors Thomas Quertermous, Ruth O'Hara Drs. Joshua Knowles and David Rehkopf. Throughout collaboration with Merck & Co., Inc, he co-led identifying a gene regulator of body fat distribution and has been involved in characterizing several other insulin resistance and obesity-related genes. In his recent investigations, he analyzed the (epi)genetic link between newborn body fat distribution and high maternal gestational glucose levels in mother-child cohorts from multi-ethnic and deprived communities. He aims to leverage discoveries of genes and evolutionary pathways involved in regulating healthspan and age-related diseases and improve patients' lives. In his free time, Mohsen likes to go to the gym, swim and run, spend time with colleagues and learn about different cultures.
