Stephen Tapscott , MD, PhD

Email: stapscot@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-4499

Dr. Tapscott's research focuses on the regulation of gene expression during the development of muscle and the nervous system and how this relates to cancers and degenerative diseases of brain and muscle. He has translational research programs in cell and gene therapy for muscular dystrophies and clinical studies to identify the mechanisms of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy.

Yolanda Tseng , MD, M.Phil

Email: ydt2@uw.edu

Phone: (206) 598-4100

Dr. Tseng is a board-certified radiation oncologist with training and experience in proton radiotherapy, focusing on lymphoma, CNS, Merkel cell skin cancer, and palliative radiation. Her diverse research includes how physicians estimate patient prognosis and its effects on treatment decisions, and how tumor biological subtypes affect patient outcomes and the response to local therapy. She's interested in systematically evaluating how proton radiotherapy can be used to optimize patient care.

Valeri Vasioukhin , PhD

Email: vvasiouk@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-1710

Dr. Vasioukhin studies cell polarity and cell adhesion in mammalian development and cancer. His laboratory studies the mechanisms and significance of cell polarity and cell adhesion in normal mammalian development and cancer. In addition, they have a significant interest in the mechanisms responsible for initiation and progression of human prostate cancer. His lab's major model system is mouse, and their primary approach is generation and characterization of genetically modified mice.

Wei Wei , PhD

Email: wwei@systemsbiology.org

Phone: (206) 732-1221

The Wei group works in the highly cross-disciplinary field of BioMEMS, molecular and cellular analysis, and systems biomedicine. These joint efforts allow us to integrate single cell technologies with other biotechnological tools and computational approaches to investigate cutting-edge cancer biology questions with a balance between discovery and clinical translation. Specifically, we are interested in the following three areas: 1) Single-cell multi-omics tools and associated multivariate computational approaches for interrogating the heterogeneous tumor cells and immune cells at multiple bimolecular levels; 2) Epigenetic remodeling and signaling network dynamics associated with cell state transition and resistance development in epigenetically plastic tumors; 3) Liquid biopsy-based rare cell analysis for cancer metastasis and immunotherapy.

Avery Weiss , MD

Email: aweiss@u.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 987-1461

Dr. Weiss research focuses on the visual function in a wide range of clinical disorders using visual evoked potentials (VEPs). Presently, we are concentrating on visual impairments associated with cortical malformations and visual pathway tumors. We are also interested in how the visual system extracts information from a moving a moving stimulus in patients with infantile nystagmus. Dr. Weiss also works in clinic and Dr. Weiss clinical interests include electroretinogram, oculomotor testing (Eye Movement Testing), and visual evoked potential.

William Yuh , MD

Email: wyuh@uw.edu

Phone: (206) 543-3320

Dr. Yuh's interests and expertise are in advanced imaging for diagnosis and imaging-guided treatment of various disease entities, imaging-based disease heterogeneity, and optimizing efficacy of imaging contrast agents. During the early development phase of the magnetic resonance (MR) contrast agents, Dr. Yuh designed and conducted many clinical trials and facilitated the FDA approval of MR contrast agents, which have become essential components of current MR imaging examination. His recent research focuses on assessing tumor heterogeneity for early prediction of ultimate treatment outcome for cancer and for the collateral circulation status for triaging therapy for acute stroke.

Jing Zhang , MD, PhD

Email: zhangj@u.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 897-5245

Dr. Zhang's research focus is on the use of proteomic techniques to discover novel proteins that are involved in chronic neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinsons disease (PD) and Alzheimers disease (AD) as well as in the aging process. Dr. Zhang is a neuropathologist who specializes in diagnosing neurodegenerative diseases.

Lue-Ping Zhao , PhD

Email: lzhao@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-6927

Being trained in biostatistics/bioinformatics, epidemiology and genetics, Dr. Zhao's current interest in STTR includes how to use omics methodology to dissect solid tumor etiology and mechanism with either expression arrays, SNP arrays, or short-read sequencing methods. Further, he is interested in utilizing large and complex electronic medical records with modern genomic technologies for translational bioinformatics studies.

Ying Zheng , PhD

Email: yingzy@uw.edu

Phone: (206) 543-3223

Dr. Zheng's research focuses on understanding and engineering the fundamental structure and functions in living tissue and organ systems from nanometer, micrometer to centimeter scale. Our research integrates the knowledge of biology and medicine, transport phenomena, matrix mechanics, and microfluidic technologies. With this means, we aim to recreate 3D physiological microenvironment in vitro, rebuild organ functional units for developmental biology, and ultimately engineer vascularized tissue and organs.
