Jerome H. Taylor, MD

Jerome H. Taylor

Dr. Taylor's translational and clinical research program focuses on preventing disorders like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder with psychotic features. He is particularly interested in the roles that oxidative stress and neuroinflammation play in psychosis symptom progression in youth.

David Taylor, PhD

David Taylor

David Taylor, Director, Academic Training, leads and manages the research trainee support infrastructure at CHOP Research Institute, including postdoctoral affairs. He is committed to maximizing the researcher-in-training experience and supporting the realization of trainees’ individual career goals.

David T. Teachey, MD

David T. Teachey

Dr. Teachey's research focuses on investigating novel therapeutics for children with white blood cell diseases, including ALL and a rare autoimmune disease called Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome (ALPS). His research in ALL focuses on studying leukemic cells from children with high-risk disease.

Natalie A. Terry, MD, PhD

Natalie A. Terry, MD, PhD

Dr. Terry's research focuses on the mechanisms of malabsorption in congenital diarrheal disorders and short bowel syndrome.

Christopher S. Thom, MD, PhD

Christopher S. Thom

Dr. Thom uses computational and cellular approaches to understand genetic determinants of hematopoiesis. Dr. Thom aims to harness related insights to improve in vitro blood cell production from induced pluripotent stem cells.

Nina Hattiangadi Thomas, PhD, ABPP-Cn

Nina H. Thomas

Dr. Thomas is a pediatric neuropsychologist with research interests in the neuropsychological effects of medical conditions including leukodystrophies and other neurologic disease, pediatric sepsis, neurodermatoses, cardiac conditions, genetic disorders, and rheumatic and endocrine disorders.

Andrei Thomas-Tikhonenko, PhD

Andrei Thomas-Tikhonenko

Dr. Thomas-Tikhonenko has a long-standing interest in the pathobiology of solid and hematopoietic malignancies, in particular lymphomas and leukemias and other cancers driven by MYC overexpression. Within that research space, his studies focus mainly (but not exclusively) on RNA-based regulatory mechanisms, such as microRNAs and alternative mRNA splicing.
