My name is Michael Dacre and I am a research professional working in Hunter Fraser’s lab at Stanford University and applying to medical school for matriculation in 2018. While I have yet to settle on a medical specialty, I am very interested in humanitarian work and am thus particularly interested in infectious diseases and emergency medicine. It is my hope to be able to combine international and domestic humanitarian work with active medical research in my future career. For more information see my clinical and research interests pages.
I am currently actively working on several projects investigating the intersection between genes, gene expression, and environment, particularly in relation to diseases and complex traits in humans. More information is available on the Research Interests page of this site.
In addition to my research, I volunteer with two emergency/rescue medicine groups: I am a member of, and the county EMA liaison for, the Stanford Emergency Medical Service and an active member of the Bay Area Mountain Rescue Unit. I am also a trained Wilderness-EMT with experience teaching wilderness medicine classes at Stanford.
