David W Nauen, M.D., Ph.D.

  • Assistant Professor of Pathology

Languages: English, French, Mandarin


David Nauen, M.D., Ph.D., 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 Dr. Nauen came to Baltimore for residency and fellowship training. Working closely with collaborators in the Institute for Cell Engineering, Neurosurgery, Neurology, and Biomedical Engineering, Dr. Nauen’s studies involve molecular and functional analyses of hippocampal tissue in response to injury. The dentate gyrus is one of two brain areas that undergo neurogenesis throughout life, and Dr. Nauen is building a research program focused on understanding the contribution of this and other developmental processes in the pathogenesis of medial temporal lobe epilepsy and injury response more generally. Dr. Nauen joined our faculty in the Division of Autopsy with a secondary appointment in Neurology in May 2016.

Patient Ratings & Comments

The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to physician related questions on the national CG-CAHPS Medical Practice patient experience survey through Press Ganey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Comments are also gathered from our CG-CAHPS Medical Practice Survey through Press Ganey and displayed in their entirety. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.
