Personal bio
Euan Angus Ashley is Assistant Professor in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford University, California and Director of the Stanford Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease. Born and raised in Scotland, Dr Ashley graduated with 1st class Honors in Physiology and Medicine from the University of Glasgow in 1996. After completing residency at the University of Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital, he was awarded a Wellcome Trust Clinician Scientist fellowship to join the PhD program in Molecular Cardiology at the University of Oxford. His work elucidating a role for intra-myocardial nitric oxide in cardiac contractility attracted Young Investigator awards from the UK Medical Research Society, the European Society of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. In 2002, he moved to California to work with Thomas Quertermous, Chief of the Division of Cardiology at Stanford University. As a Reynolds foundation fellow, he applied high dimensional molecular tools to discover novel pathways in atherosclerosis and heart failure, attracting in the process Investigator awards from the American Heart Association and the Heart Failure Society of America. In 2006, he joined the faculty of Stanford. In 2009, he was awarded an NIH Director's New Innovator award to study nanoscale approaches to allele silencing in cardiomyopathy syndromes. In 2010, he led the bicoastal, Stanford-Harvard collaborative team that carried out the first clinical interpretation of a whole human genome, that of his colleague Stanford Professor Stephen Quake. Dr Ashley is a member of the leadership group of the American Heart Association's Council on Functional Genomics, Chair of the Program committee of the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute, and Executive Editor for the Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research. Father to 4 year old and 4 month year old Americans, in his 'spare' time, he tries (and usually fails) to understand baseball, plays the saxophone in a jazz quartet, and conducts research on the health benefits of single malt Scotch whiskey.
