Jeff Nirschl, M.D., Ph.D. is a resident physician at Stanford University, Stanford, CA, in the Department of Pathology. He completed his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania under the supervision of Dr. Erika Holzbaur. During his thesis research, he investigated axonal transport and genetic forms of parkinsonism. He also developed computational image analysis workflows for fluorescence microscopy and digital pathology. His research interests include molecular motors and the neuronal cytoskeleton, the regulation of axonal transport in neurodegeneration, digital pathology, and quantitative image analysis using machine learning.
