Winston Chiong, MD, PhD

Associate Professor of Neurology
Executive Director, UCSF Bioethics

Winston Chiong is an Associate Professor in the UCSF Department of Neurology Memory and Aging Center and is the principal investigator of the UCSF Decision Lab. His clinical practice focuses on Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia and other cognitive disorders of aging. His research has two main themes:

Hannah Cho

Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator

Hannah graduated from the University of Southern California in 2022 with a BS degree in Neuroscience. At USC, she was a research assistant at the Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute using histology techniques to visualize fluorescently labeled neural circuits. She also studied the effects of sex hormones on Alzheimer’s disease as a research assistant at the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology. Hannah has experience performing immunohistochemistry, perfusion-fixation surgery, confocal microscopy, and imageJ analysis.

Kolette Cho

Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator

Chris Chow

Data Analyst

Chris works as a Data Analyst in the Memory and Aging Center under Dr. Kate Possin. Chris collaborates with the TabCAT team and Care Ecosystem project, where he excels in data visualization, statistical modeling, and data management. He works mainly in R and Python.

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. 

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

Aaron Colverson, PhD

Postdoctoral Scholar

Aaron Colverson is a Doctor of Philosophy in Ethnomusicology, with partnering research in Neuropsychology. He graduated from Berklee College of Music with a BM degree in Professional Music focused on jazz violin performance after which, he moved to Nairobi, Kenya for two years, embedding himself in East African musical traditions and cultures. He received a fellowship to study music and prosocial interaction in Alzheimer’s disease and endeavors to build cross-disciplinary competency between ethnomusicology and neuropsychology in the context of gerontology.

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.

Sean Coulborn, PhD, MSc

Postdoctoral Fellow

Sean Coulborn is a postdoctoral researcher at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center under the mentorship of Dr. David Perry. His research focuses on improving the certainty of clinical diagnosis and predicting the pathological diagnosis in neurodegenerative diseases.
