    Venita Chandra

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - Vascular Surgery

    Bio Dr. Chandra earned her B.S. degree, Summa Cum Laude, in Genetics and Cell Biology from the University of Minnesota in 1999. In 2004, she received her medical degree from the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Dr. Chandra completed her General Surgery residency at Stanford in 2011 and is a graduate of the Stanford Biodesign program. She continued on to complete the Stanford Vascular Surgery Fellowship.

    Dr. Chandra is a member of SSATHI (Stanford South Asian Translational Heart Institute), as well as WHH (Stanford Women's Hearth Health). She is the co-director of the Stanford Wound Care Center (opening October 2014). She is the associate program director of the Vascular Surgery Fellowship and the Vascular Surgery Medical Student Clerkship Director.

    Dr. Chandra's research interests include women’s vascular health, radiation safety, technology development and treatment optimization for complex open and endovascular treatment of peripheral vascular and aneurysmal disease.

  • Christopher Cheng

    Christopher Cheng

    Consulting Associate Professor, Surgery - Vascular Surgery

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research laboratory focuses on understanding the mechanics of the cardiovascular system, especially with respect to interactions between medical devices and the dynamic cardiovascular environment. We use medical imaging, 3D geometric modeling, and custom deformation quantification techniques to investigate disease processes and medical device performance. We are interested in the dynamics of the heart, aorta, and peripheral vasculature, and are always seeking ways to apply our research to current and emerging therapies. While our research pursuits seek to add to the fundamental understanding of cardiovascular biomechanics, all of our projects are directly related to improving medical device design, evaluation, regulation, and their use in clinical practice.
