David Nauen, M.D., Ph.D.
David Nauen trained in the M.D./Ph.D. program at the University of Pittsburgh/Carnegie Mellon where he studied mechanisms of spike-timing-dependent long-term plasticity, a reductionist model for memory. In 2010 he came to Baltimore for residency in anatomic pathology and fellowship in neuropathology. Dr. Nauen’s studies involve molecular and functional analyses of hippocampal tissue in response to injury. The dentate gyrus in mammals undergoes neurogenesis throughout life, and the lab’s research program is focused on understanding the contribution of this and other developmental processes in the pathogenesis of medial temporal lobe epilepsy and injury response more generally.
