  • Kinya Seo

    Kinya Seo

    Instructor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine

    Bio Dr. Kinya Seo's primary research focus is on the determinants of myocardial function in the normal and diseased heart toward the goal for developing new therapies for heart failure. On a technical level, he possesses an unparalleled range of skills in molecular and cell biology, biomedical engineering, and model organisms research. He received his graduate training at the University of Tokyo, where he studied cardiac mechanics, electrophysiology, and computer simulation to investigate the mechanisms of arrhythmias induced by mechanical stimuli. After he received Ph.D., he moved to Baltimore to work in the laboratory of Dr. David Kass at Johns Hopkins University. He extended his skills and expertise toward the understanding of the pathogenesis of cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure with special focus on the influence of mechanical stimuli. After postdoctoral training, he went back to Japan working at Jichi Medical University as an assistant professor, where he developed intravital imaging technologies for cardiovascular events. These skills will allow him to extend his studies from cells to organs, and to human to perform translational study for heart diseases.

  • Disha Sharma

    Disha Sharma

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Cardiovascular Medicine

    Bio I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow with Dr. Thomas Quertermous at Stanford University. I have joined the lab with more than 7 years of research experience in the field of computational biology wherein I have worked with multi-omics data for multiple diseases to get a deeper understanding of the disease identification and progression.
    My background in engineering and bioinformatics provide an excellent background for the studies proposed in this application, which proposes to investigate the genetics and genomics of smooth muscle cell biology in the context of vascular disease. I first pursued a Bachelor's in Biotechnology program at one of the premier institutes in India, Banasthali Vidyapeeth and received my degree in 2007. After qualifying with the IIT-JAM exam in 2010, I joined the Master?s in Science (Biotechnology) program at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee in a program of engineering and technology. After my Master's, I joined Dr. Vinod Scaria?s lab at CSIR-IGIB as a Project Fellow. During the tenure as Project fellow from 2012-2014, I had the opportunity to work with different transcriptomics data from model organisms including zebrafish, rat and human cell lines to understand the role of long non-coding RNAs and miRNAs. I also worked on clinical datasets of autoimmune disorders. With one and half years of research experience and a UGC fellowship awarded through the NET-JRF examination, I continued working with Dr. Vinod Scaria to pursue my PhD. My research interest for the degree focused on the identification and characterization of circular RNAs, and this work has now been published in multiple manuscripts listed below. Over the years at CSIR-IGIB, I have had the chance to work on interesting ideas with multiple collaborating groups. One of them was Dr. Sridhar Sivasubbu, with whom I worked to understand the transcript-level interactions between mitochondria and the nucleus, using zebrafish as a model organism.
    In view of my interest in the translational aspects of biology, I obtained the opportunity to work as part of the GUaRDIAN Consortium with Dr. Vinod Scaria and Dr. Sridhar Sivasubbu at CSIR-IGIB. This pioneering project is the largest network of researchers and clinicians in India pursuing sequencing patient DNAs to identify rare SNVs and structural variants responsible for muscular dystrophy in these patients. In the interest of advancing genomics in clinical and healthcare settings, I was selected as Intel Fellow 2019 to work for the Intel-IGIB collaboration focussing on ?Accelerating Clinical Analysis and Interpretation of Genomic Data through advanced tools/libraries?. Our project was selected among top 3 from 50 premier research institutes and I was awarded the Intel-India Fellowship for a year to pursue this project. I was also part of the core team of IndiGen (Genomes for Public Health in India). With the spread of COVID-19 around the world, our group contributed by sequencing and analysing COVID19 genomes to get a better understanding of the disease and I had the opportunity to be part of the core team to analyse the viral sequencing datasets and viral assembly.
    I am extremely pleased to have joined the Quertermous lab at Stanford to the study of the molecular mechanisms of cardiovascular disease. Work that I am pursuing in this laboratory, and proposed in this application, are directly in line with my personal aspiration to start an independent career in the field of scientific research to work on projects with high translational value and of interest to the public health.

  • Joshua M. Spin

    Joshua M. Spin

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Spin began his research career studying the structural biology of low density lipoprotein, and has been augmenting his skills with intensive training in molecular biology techniques, particularly those involving high-throughput genetic expression profiling. He is especially interested in vascular smooth muscle cells, and the role of smooth muscle differentiation and phenotypic switching in development and vascular disease. His latest work has focused on the biology of aortic aneurysms.
