Michael Raphael Tadross
Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering

Dr. Tadross joined the Duke Department of Biomedical Engineering as an assistant professor on July 1, 2017.

His lab develops technologies to rapidly deliver drugs to genetically defined subsets of cells in the brain. By using these reagents in mouse models of neuropsychiatric disease, his group is mapping how specific receptors on defined cells and synapses in the brain give rise to diverse neural computations and behaviors.  The approach leverages drugs currently in use to treat human neuropsychiatric disease, facilitating clinically relevant interpretation of the mapping effort.

Dr. Tadross received his B.S. degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering at Rutgers University, an M.D./Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and completed his postdoctoral study in Cellular Neuroscience at Stanford University. He began his independent research program as a fellow at the HHMI Janelia Research Campus.
