Assistant Professor of Dermatology, University of Pennsylvania

Thomas is an Assistant Professor of Dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania and an Attending Physician at the Michael Crescenz VA Medical Center.

I lived in New York City until I was 10-years-old and then moved to the Palo Alto, California. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Stanford University and my MD and PhD degrees from the joint UCLA-Caltech Medical Scientist Training program. As a graduate student, I trained with Nobel Laureate David Baltimore studying gene regulation. I returned to Stanford University for Dermatology residency and performed a postdoctoral fellowship with Seung Kim (Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Stanford University) studying developmental biology.

I'm excited to be back on the East Coast. I love spending time with my wife and two kids, watching sports (Stanford, Mets, Yankees, Giants, Warriors, Rangers, and now Eagles), and visiting the Haunted Mansion at Disney World.
