Connect with David Litvin
David joined the Wyss Center in September 2022 as a research scientist focused on glial biology. He brings experience in neurophysiology and 2photon microscopy imaging (2d+t/3d+t) and analysis, which he is developing to deploy into the Wyss Center research ecosystem.
David received a PhD in 2018 from the department of Physiology and Biophysics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, where he studied the impact of respiratory insults on lung-brain connectivity.
Following his PhD, David did a short postdoc in Spain at the Neuroscience Institute of Alicante (CSIC) where he studied synaptic physiology, before joining the group of Andrea Volterra at the University of Lausanne. In the Volterra lab, David’s work primarily involved development of experimental and analytical tools to image and detect astrocyte physiology reported by genetically encoded indicators such as GCaMP6f and SF-iGluSnFR.
