Michael Tadross

Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University

I received a B.S. in Electrical & Computer Engineering with a minor in Chemistry at Rutgers; an M.D.-Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins; and postdoctoral training in Cellular Neuroscience at Stanford. My independent work began as a Jr. Fellow at the HHMI Janelia Research Campus.

I have always gravitated towards conceptual problems that don't yield easily. My favorite days are when I get to work side-by-side with a student,  help them gain knowledge, and see their confidence grow.  When I'm not doing science, I love spending time with my two boys and writing music.
