Michael Hsieh is a Professor in the Department of Urology in the School of Medicine. He first came to Stanford in 1989, where he received his B.S. in biology in 1993. He then received his M.D., and Ph.D in Microbiology & Immunology, both from Thomas Jefferson University in 2001, and then went on to do an internship and residency in Surgery at the University of California, San Francisco, and residency in Urology, there, too. He completed a fellowship in Pediatric Urology in 2009 at the Texas Children’s Hospital, Baylor College of Medicine. 

He has received many awards and honors in the past years, one of which is the Stinehart-Reed Award (co-investigator) from the Stanford Stem Cell Institute. His current research interests lie in  how microbial-triggered inflammation protects against pathogens and yet can paradoxically harm the host through secondary effects such as tissue fibrosis and carcinogenesis. His lab is currently examining anti-pathogenic inflammation induced by vaginal commensal lactobacilli, i.e. candidate probiotics, and uropathogenic E. coli.
