Irene Pachon Angona
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Gastroenterology
Bio I studied Pharmacy in the University of Seville, in the south of Spain. After that, I didi one first MSc in Molecular Biology, at CEA in Grenoble (France). However, I realized that I was more interested in chemistry. For this reason, I decided to specialzed in Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Innovation with another MSc at the University Grenoble Alpes (France).
In 2019, I received my Ph.D. in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Franche-Comté in France. My work in the laboratory of Prof. Lhassane Ismaili focused on the synthesis of multi-targeting ligands, using the Ugi and Hantzsch multicomponent reaction, to target different factors involved in Alzheimer’s disease as potential therapeutics. I joined Prof. Glenn lab at Stanford University where I am interested in the synthesis of broad-spectrum antivirals that target the host PI-kinases.
Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Critical Care
Current Research and Scholarly Interests In my administrative role, I oversee the development and maintenance of clinical decision support tools within the electronic medical record. These clinical decision support tools are designed to enhance patient safety, efficiency, and quality of care. My research focuses on rigorously evaluating--1) how these tools affect clinician knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors; and 2) how these tools affect clinical outcomes and efficiency of health care delivery.

In addition, prior to coming to Stanford, she helped initiate and served as medical director for the Palliative Care inpatient consult service at El Camino Hospital. During that time, she served as chair of the El Camino Hospital Ethics Committee and as an advisory member for the Genomics Medicine Institute at El Camino Hospital. Drawing from her experiences working in both executive health programs and retainer based practices, she joined Stanford in 2012 to help launch Stanford Concierge Medicine. She subsequently served as the Medical Director of Stanford Concierge Medicine and Stanford Executive Health for five years where she helped pilot aspects of Stanford Precision Health platform.

Jennifer Yi-Jiun Pan
Clinical Assistant Professor (Affiliated), Medicine - Med/Gastroenterology and Hepatology
Bio My research interests thus far have focused on immunology, GI cancers, and improving quality of care for patients. I am passionate about understanding the different genetic and lifestyle factors that are involved in GI cancers and other colonic pathology, as well as improving systems of care to better manage the health and improve the outcomes of patients with these diseases. Towards that end, I have been involved in research in Lynch syndrome in order to bridge the gap between our current understanding of cancer risk in this high-risk population and the creation and implementation of guidelines worldwide. I also had the opportunity to work with collaborators in the International Mismatch Repair Consortium at the Department of Colorectal Medicine and Genetics with the Royal Melbourne Hospital in Australia where I saw firsthand the global efforts in the fight against colorectal cancer. In my current role as a staff gastroenterologist at the VA Palo Alto, I oversee the colorectal cancer prevention program. My goal is to continue to be part of and contribute to collaborative clinical and research efforts in order to provide the best care for our patients.
