David Jaffe

  • Alumni
    Junior Specialist
    MD, PhD Student, Thomas Jefferson University

David is an alumni of Dr. Tian’s lab, and is now an MD and PhD student at Thomas Jefferson University.

David originally joined the Tian Lab in late 2017 due to its contribution to neuroscientific experiments. The brain is something he has always been interested in, especially from reading books by Henry Marsch, V.S. Ramachandran, and Oliver Sacks. Also, courses in neuroscience as a recent biological sciences graduate with a computational biology minor from UC Davis steered him towards neuroscience.

When not working, David loves anything outdoors. Camping, hiking, backpacking, surfing, and skiing are all fantastic, and as long as he has only sky overhead and is happy. Other than this, his true passion is listening to all sorts of music and playing the piano.
