Jonathan Chen

Staff Research Associate

Jonathan graduated from UC Berkeley in 2018. He was first exposed to research was through UCSF's Diversity Scholar Program in the summer of 2015. Through this program, he received training in neuroscience lab techniques, computational science, and entrepreneurship. He joined the Grinberg Lab in fall 2015 as an undergraduate student. His goal is to pursue a medical career as a clinician in neurology.

Miranda Chen

Clinical Research Coordinator

Miranda was born and raised in Palo Alto, California and graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in May 2020 with a bachelor of arts degree in molecular and cell biology. At the Memory and Aging Center, she is working as a clinical research coordinator in the Rabinovici Lab to help coordinate studies examining the utility of innovative neuroimaging techniques and other biomarkers for the improved diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

Doris Chen, MD

Behavioral Neurology Clinical Fellow

Dr. Doris Chen completed her undergraduate degree in cognitive science at UC Berkeley. She received her medical degree from the University of Nevada School of Medicine and completed her neurology residency training at UC Davis. She is currently a clinical fellow at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center. Her vision is to provide comprehensive and compassionate care for individuals with neurodegenerative disease from all socioeconomic backgrounds.

Gillian Chen

Administrative Assistant

Gillian Chen is an administrative assistant for the Rabinovici and Rosen Labs. Born and raised in the Bay Area (mostly in the East Bay), she earned her bachelor of science degree in health sciences with a focus on administration and management at California State University, East Bay. She then completed her master’s degree in health care administration with a focus in management and change in health care, also at CSU East Bay.

In her free time, Gillian likes to work out, play with her dog and read.

Samantha Cheung

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. 

Stephanie Chu

Research Coordinator

Stephanie Chu graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles with a bachelor's degree in neuroscience. She worked as a research assistant in the Laboratory of Brain, Behavior, and Pharmacology at the Semel Institute at UCLA, where she assisted Dr. Aimee Hunter and Dr. Andrew Leuchter with research on depression and related psychiatric disorders using EEG data. Stephanie joined the Dementia Imaging Genetics Lab in 2017, where she assists Dr.

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.
