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.

Edward Anhoa Pham
Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Gastroenterology
Bio My interest in medicine and research was triggered by my mother?s battle with chronic hepatitis C, which made me realize the transformational power of biomedical research in treating patients. Therefore, my career goal is to become a physician scientist in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology dedicated to translating discoveries in the laboratory into novel medical treatment modalities. My research focus is alterations in phosphoinositides signaling and its pathogenesis in cancers of the hepatobiliary and luminal GI tract with the goal to identify novel targets for therapeutic intervention. I also have a particular interest in understanding the interface between chronic viral infection and cancer through studying how the innate and adaptive immune system are perturbed in chronic viral infections
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Infectious Diseases
Bio I received my BS in Biological Sciences in Zhejiang University in China, where I conducted research in polyphasic taxonomy in anaerobic bacteria. I received my PhD in Yale University, where I studied the early events of retrovirus infection in animal models. Now in the Blish lab, I am investigating NK cell responses during HIV-1 infection and trying to manipulate the NK cells to target latently infected cells.
