Lei Stanley Qi
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and of Chemical and Systems Biology
Bio Dr. Lei Stanley Qi is Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering, Department of Chemical and Systems Biology, and a faculty fellow in Stanford ChEM-H. He is one of major contributors to the CRISPR technology development for genome engineering. He demonstrated the first use of the nuclease-deactivated Cas9 (dCas9) for genome targeting in cells. Using dCas9, His lab developed the CRISPR interference (CRISPRi) and CRISPR activation (CRISPRa) technologies for gene expression regulation, which is broadly used for high-throughput study of genomics in different organisms. He co-developed the CRISPR application for chromatin imaging in living cells. His lab greatly expanded the CRISPR toolbox for engineering the genome and epigenome, including multiplexed epigenome editing, programmable 3D genome manipulation (CRISPR-GO), live-cell imaging (LiveFISH), and CRISPR antivirals for targeting RNA viruses (PAC-MAN). He obtained B.S. in Physics from Tsinghua University, and Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California Berkeley in 2012. He joined UCSF as Systems Biology Faculty Fellow between 2012 to 2014, and joined the faculty at Stanford University since 2014. His lab combines genome engineering with synthetic biology to understand the function of mammalian genomes and develop gene therapy.

Yushen Qian, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Therapy
Bio Dr. Qian is a board-certified radiation oncologist and a clinical assistant professor in the Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Radiation Oncology.
He is committed to providing personalized and compassionate care that optimizes patient safety, treatment effectiveness, and long-term outcomes.
In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Qian has conducted extensive research that is often focused on the impact of radiation therapy on patient outcomes and health care system costs.
He has presented the findings at annual meetings of the American Radium Society, American Society for Radiation Oncology, American Society of Clinical Oncology Cancer Survivorship Symposium, Palliative Care in Oncology Symposium, and elsewhere.
Dr. Qian has published articles in journals such as Clinical Cancer Research, the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Practical Radiation Oncology, the International Journal of Radiation Oncology • Biology • Physics (IJROBP), and more.
Dr. Qian co-authored the chapter on radiation therapy for liver tumors in the book Radiation Therapy for Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Clinical Data. He also co-authored the chapter on liver care for the book Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy.
He has earned numerous honors, including the Malcolm A. Bagshaw Award for leadership and outstanding scientific achievement. This award is named for a pioneer in radiation therapy and former chair of the Departments of Radiology and Radiation Oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
Michael Quach, MD
Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Bio I am a board certified psychiatrist in San Jose, CA with over 14 years of clinical experience. I specialize in Men's Mental Health. My practice focuses on assisting adult male professionals who are struggling with mental health issues.
I completed my medical training at Stanford University School of Medicine and my Psychiatric Residency at Stanford Hospital and Clinics. I was Chief Resident in the Stanford Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and recipient of the prestigious Stanford George Gulevich Humanistic Medicine Award in 2006.
I currently serve as Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford University in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. I feel privileged and honored to be part of the Stanford Adjunct Clinical Faculty and to teach the brightest and most dedicated Stanford Medical Students over the past 12 years.
I am board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN), and I am a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association (FAPA). I am also an active member of the Northern California Psychiatric Society (NCPS), the California Psychiatric Association (CPA), the American Psychiatric Association (APA), and Lifetime Member of the Stanford Alumni Association (SAA).
