Stanford Profile


Daniel Nachun

Postdoctoral Scholar

Ph.D., Neuroscience, UCLA

Daniel received his BA in biology from Williams College in 2012, where he studied the genetics of epilepsy in Drosophila melanogaster for his undergraduate thesis. He received a Ph. D. in neuroscience from UCLA in 2018, where he studied the peripheral blood transcriptomes of patients with neurodegenerative diseases. He is interested in using and developing methods in computational genomics to understand aging disorders and immunology from single cells to large patient cohorts.


Hind Bouzid

Postdoctoral Scholar

Ph.D., Hematology/Oncology, Université Sorbonne-Paris Cité

Hind simultaneously obtained her European Magister of Genetics from Paris Diderot and M.S in Biology from Milano Bicocca University in 2013. She worked in Raslova’s lab on the predisposition to acute leukemia and received her Ph.D. in Hematology/Oncology from Sorbonne Paris Cité in 2017. In 2018, she joined the Gene Therapy Program of Dana Farber/ Boston Children’s Hospital, and started a multidisciplinary research by developing a hematopoietic stem cell gene therapy for treating neurodegenerative diseases. Hind wants to pursue her focus on aging related diseases in the Jaiswal Lab and develop innovative treatments.


Kameron Rodrigues

Graduate Student

Kameron graduated with his B.S. from the University of Arizona in 2014, double majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular & Cellular Biology. He worked for 3 years as a post-baccalaureate fellow at the National Institutes of Health, conducting both wet and dry lab research. Now, Kameron is a graduate student studying Computational and Systems Immunology within the Immunology program at Stanford. He is interested in researching the effects of human genetic variation on the immune system during the pathogenesis of common complex diseases. Kameron is co-mentored by Stephen Montgomery and Siddhartha Jaiswal.


Sara Wirth

Lab Manager

Sara graduated with her B.S. in Physiology and Neuroscience from UCSD in 2015. She has experience in molecular and developmental biology as well as protein engineering, tissue culture, and pediatric neurogenetics. She will bring skills from her time in both industry and academia to several projects in the Jaiswal lab.


Lisa Ma

Senior Research Associate

Lisa attended UCLA as an undergraduate, and completed her M.S. at Stanford. Throughout her professional career she has worked in protein science, cell biology, molecular biology as well as next generation sequencing. Lisa helped develop an AML cancer panel for clinical diagnoses and in the Jaiswal lab, she studies CHIP and single cell biology.

"The thing I enjoy most about working at Stanford is absolutely the people I work with: their talent, intellectual curiosity, and their willingness to help others."


Jk Gopakumar

Research Associate

Jk, a Bay Area native, completed his undergrad at Pomona College where he obtained a B.S. in Neuroscience. He was also a member of the soccer and track teams at Pomona College. He is currently working in the Jaiswal lab while applying to MD/PhD programs.


Herra Ahmad

Visiting Research Scholar

Herra is a medical student from Germany, currently in her final year at Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. She has completed several visiting clerkships during her medical studies at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, St. Petersburg State Pediatric Medical University in Russia, and Shanti Nursing Home in India. Her scholarly interests are in experimental research and cardiovascular medicine. She plans to complete her doctoral thesis study here in the Jaiswal Lab, which focuses on the link between clonal hematopoiesis and atherosclerosis. Herra’s goal is to become a successful cardiologist and set up a hospital in India one day.
