David Furman, Ph.D.

Associate ProfessorBuck Institute for Research on Aging

Dr. David Furman obtained his Doctoral degree in immunology (summa cum laude) from the School of Medicine, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, for his work on cancer immune-surveillance. During his Postdoc at the laboratory of Professor Mark M Davis, (Stanford) he conducted cutting-edge research in Data Science and Systems Immunology to answer scientific questions with strong potential for translational medicine, including the effect of immunity in aging and age-related disease.

Dr. Furman moved to University of Bordeaux, France, where he studied the involvement of the endocrine and immune systems in human aging and in kidney transplantation, and then helped to create the Systems Biology Department at the Sidra Medical Research Center in Doha, Qatar. Before joining as an Principal Investigator at the National Scientific and Research Council, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Dr. Furman was back to Stanford to take the role of Senior Scientist at the Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection (ITI), and his work involved the use of high-bandwidth/high-throughput technologies to measure immune function; and Machine Learning tools to better define the role of the immune system in cardiovascular aging.
