Kolette Cho

Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator

Tiffany Chow, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Tiffany Chow joined the Clinical Affective Neuroscience (CAN) Laboratory as a postdoctoral scholar in 2018. She received her PhD degree in cognitive neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2017. Her graduate work assessed the neural correlates of episodic memory retrieval through the use of functional magnetic resonance imaging, transcranial direct current stimulation, and wearable camera technology. 

Lin Chung

Associate Specialist

Kim joined the Seeley Lab in May 2022 as an Associate Specialist. She received her BS degree in biochemistry from Harvey Mudd College, master’s degree in forensic medical science from Barts and the London University, and MBBS degree from King’s College London. She is involved in studying selective vulnerability in frontotemporal dementia. Her interest is in neuropathology.

Annie Clark

Research Data Analyst

Claire Clelland, MD, PhD

Assistant Adjunct Professor

The Clelland laboratory aims to develop cures for dementia and related neurodegenerative diseases. She is focused on monogenic causes of frontotemporal dementia and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, such as mutations in the C9orf72 gene. She and her team develop CRISPR gene editing approaches in relevant cell types derived from human iPSCs and are working to develop better cell model systems of disease.

Yann Cobigo

Imaging Core Specialist

Quentin Coppola

Asst. Clinical Research Coordinator

Celica Glenn Cosme

Research Associate

Celica joined the Seeley Lab in September 2016 as a research associate to assist with the Neurodegenerative Disease Brain Bank and other technical work for various projects. She received her BA degree in molecular and cell biology with a neurobiology emphasis from University of California, Berkeley in August 2016.

Daven Crossland

Clinical Research Coordinator

Daven Crossland is a clinical research coordinator with the Geschwind Lab at the Memory and Aging Center. He currently oversees studies involving spinocerebellar ataxia and provides assistance with studies involving Huntington’s disease and multiple systems atrophy. When not working on research, Daven enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, running or playing soccer. Daven also enjoys playing a variety of musical instruments.

Noah Cryns

Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator

Noah attended college at UC Berkeley where he recently graduated with a BA degree in neurobiology. Currently, Noah is an Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator at the Memory and Aging Center for Dr. David Perry and Dr. Winston Chiong. Noah is interested in how reward processing and decision-making are impacted by neurodegenerative disease.
