Daniel Herrick, MD, PhD

Daniel was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. He attended Colby College for his undergraduate studies where he graduated with honors in chemistry. Daniel then worked as a research assistant for two years under Dr. Daniel Hanley on the CLEAR III (intraventricular hemorrhage) and MISTIE (intracerebral hemorrhage) clinical trials at Johns Hopkins University. He subsequently began medical school in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at Tufts University. In the laboratory of Dr. James Schwob, Daniel studied the role of Notch signaling in olfactory neural stem cell quiescence and neuronal maturation. Outside of neurosurgery, Daniel enjoys playing squash and tennis, fly fishing, and spending time with family and friends.
