Oscar J. Abilez
Instructor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Abilez' interests are aimed at elucidating how various biophysical and biochemical perturbations regulate early cardiovascular development across time and length scales that span several orders of magnitude, using human pluripotent stem cells as a model system.
Kevin M. Alexander, MD, FACC
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Alexander is an advanced heart failure-trained cardiologist. He is also an Assistant Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine.
Dr. Alexander specializes in the management of advanced heart failure and transplant cases, seeing a wide range of patients. He also has an active research laboratory, studying various forms of heart failure.
Dr. Alexander has expertise in diagnosing and treating transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis, a critical yet underdiagnosed cause of heart failure among African Americans and the elderly.

Euan A. Ashley
Associate Dean, School of Medicine, Roger W. and Joelle G. Burnell Professor of Genomics, Professor of Genetics, of Biomedical Data Science and, by courtesy, of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Ashley lab is focused on precision medicine. We develop methods for the interpretation of whole genome sequencing data to improve the diagnosis of genetic disease and to personalize the practice of medicine. At the wet bench, we take advantage of cell systems, transgenic models and microsurgical models of disease to prove causality in biological pathways and find targets for therapeutic development.
