Dr. London was born and raised in Southern California. He received his bachelor’s degree in Microbiology from Brigham Young University followed by his M.D. Ph.D. from The University of Utah. Dr. London then completed his residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Johns Hopkins. He then completed a fellowship at The Ohio State University in open and endoscopic skull base surgery under the direction of Dr. Ricardo Carrau.
He maintains a clinical practice focused on inflammatory sinonasal disease, skull base disorders, and malignancies of the skull base, sinonasal cavity, and oral cavity. This includes chronic rhinosinusitis and rhinitis, skull base defects such as encephalocele or cerebrospinal fluid leak, as well as malignancies including squamous cell carcinoma, olfactory neuroblastoma (esthesioneuroblastoma), and nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
Dr. London has published over 40 peer-reviewed research articles, reviews, and book chapters. This includes co-first author publications in Nature, Nature Medicine, Science Translational Medicine, and Nature Cell Biology. He directs a laboratory at the National Institutes of Health/NIDCD focused on therapeutic advances and mechanisms of olfactory neuroblastoma (esthesioneuroblastoma) tumorigenesis.
