Dr. Neil Neumann, MD/PhD

Resident in Pathology at UCSF

San Francisco, CA

How does this work?

I am a physician-scientist resident with an interest in dermatopathology, general surgical pathology, and oncology. I am a fellow in surgical pathology at UCSF and will be a fellow in dermatopathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York (2022-23). I am particularly interested in questions pertaining to melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma invasion and metastasis utilizing intersectional techniques, including artificial intelligence and next generation genomic sequencing. I graduated with an MD and PhD from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where I studied I studied the role of cell migration in organ formation and cancer metastasis.

UCSF Medical Center

Resident Doctor

Jul 2010 - May 2019

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

MD/PhD Candidate

I was in the Medical Scientist Training Program. My thesis advisor was Dr. Andrew Ewald of the Department of Cell Biology in the Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology (BCMB) program at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. I studied the role of cell migration in epithelial organogenesis and carcinoma invasion and metastasis.


Jul 2009 - May 2010

Harvard University

Research Assistant

I worked in the laboratory of Dr. Amy Wagers at the Joslin Diabetes Center and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. I ran the Skeletal Muscle Progenitor Cell Core and also performed independent research in the lab. I investigated the role of extracellular proteins in the differentiation of skeletal muscle stem cells towards terminally differentiated, striated muscle fibers. Previously, I had worked in the lab during the summer of 2007 under the direction of a post-doctoral fellow. We investigated the role of systemic factors in aging muscle stem cells and the development of sarcopenia. We did this using parabiotic mice and FACS to isolate muscle stem cells.


Jan 2006 - May 2009

Johns Hopkins University

Undergraduate Researcher

I worked in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Schleif in the Department of Biology and Biophysics. This was my undergraduate research position. I focused on elucidating the physical interaction of the AraC DNA binding domain to the AraC dimerization domain using both surface plasmon resonance and fluorescence resonance energy transfer studies. I received the Larrabee Biophysics departmental award, as well as graduating with Honors, for the work conducted in the lab.

Jan 2005 - Aug 2005

Student Researcher

During my senior year of high school, I worked on the mechanism of neural stem cell migration toward glioblastoma multiforme.
