Stanford Medicine Grads: Engaging Community College Students in STEM Research

Part of CSM's Science-In-Action Speaker Series
Sun Oct 03, 2021
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Dr. Sean Yamada- Hunter PhD, Postdoc Researcher- Stanford Center for Cancer Cell Therapy

Dr. Sean Yamada-Hunter grew up in San Diego and stayed in Southern California for his undergraduate studies, majoring in biochemistry at UCLA. He has been at Stanford since 2014 and received his Ph.D. in 2020 in the lab of Dr. Jennifer Cochran engineering new protein cancer therapies. He is currently a postdoctoral scholar in Dr. Crystal Mackall's lab, where he studies ways to engineer immune cells to more effectively fight cancer. Sean is passionate about bridging protein and cellular engineering and developing new synthetic biology tools to help advance cancer therapy.

Teni Anbarchian, PhD MD Student, Stanford School of Medicine

Teni Anbarchian is currently a medical student at Stanford University, School of Medicine. Before transitioning into the medical field, she completed her Ph.D. in Developmental Biology, in the lab of Dr. Roel Nusse at Stanford. Her thesis focused on understanding how cell division is controlled during organ growth, a topic that concerns the biology of cancer, stem cells and aging. Teni immigrated to the U.S. in 2008 where she began her undergraduate studies at Glendale Community College, later transferring to UCLA to study Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology (MCDB). Having lived in the sunny California for the past decade, she enjoys reading a good book in a cozy local coffee shop on a beautiful day and hopes to serve the community as an aspiring physician-scientist who is passionate about equity in healthcare and education.
