Nazish Sayed MD, PhD

Stanford University

Dr. Sayed is a cardiologist by training whose research has been focused on the development of novel technologies that drive innovation in regenerative medicine, disease modeling, and drug testing in vascular and endothelial biology. Before becoming an Instructor at Stanford, he earned an MD at the University of Bombay, an MS from Montclair State, and a PhD from the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey. Dr. Sayed was initially recruited to Houston Methodist Research Institute as a junior faculty member, where he made fundamental discoveries in the field of endothelial regeneration. He has continued this work at Stanford, establishing a successful, collaborative endothelial regeneration program investigating the pathological mechanisms associated with cardiovascular diseases, including dilated cardiomyopathy, using patient-specific iPSCs as a disease model.
