Shibani Pati MD, PhD

CTTACC Conference Chair
Professor of Laboratory Medicine and Surgery, UCSF
Scientific Director of Cellular Therapies

Dr. Pati is a vascular biologist and is currently at employed at the University of California San Francisco. She is the Scientific Director of Cellular Therapies and Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine. She is by training a cancer vascular biologist with an interest in the role of endothelial dysfunction and vascular compromise in the pathogenesis of human disease. Dr. Pati is internationally recognized for her work on endothelial dysfunction and resuscitation in trauma. Dr. Pati received her A.B. in Molecular Biology from Princeton University and her MD. PhD. from the University of Maryland. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Neuroscience at the Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Texas in Houston. Following her fellowship, Dr. Pati’s specific areas of investigation involve the use of stem cells, blood products and novel resuscitative modalities that can mitigate endothelial dysfunction, inflammation and coagulation disturbances found in hemorrhage and traumatic injury. Her lab aims to specifically understand the mechanisms of vascular compromise in injury and novel methods by which to modulate it. Her lab is funded by the DOD, NIH and private industry. Recent studies by Dr. Pati have involved the therapeutic potential and mechanisms of action of novel blood products in mitigating organ injury after hemorrhagic shock and trauma and TBI.
