Nicolas Da Silva is Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Assistant in Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital. He obtained his master degree in Molecular & Cellular Physiology from Blaise-Pascal University, Clermont-Ferrand, France, and his PhD in Cell Biology from Paris 7 - Diderot University. Following his postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Sylvie Breton at MGH, he developed his own research project, which aims at studying the role of immune cells in the post-testicular environment. The group is part of the Program in Membrane Biology at CSB and the MGH Division of Nephrology. His current research is supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD).
