Dr. George Zanazzi completed a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences at Stanford University and then worked in Dr. Jim Salzer’s laboratory at New York University Medical Center using cell culture systems and mouse models to study signals that underlie the development and dysfunction of myelinated axons in the peripheral nervous system. During an MD-PhD at Stony Brook University, he utilized optical, histological, ultrastructural, and electrophysiological techniques to examine signal transmission at high-output ribbon synapses in the zebrafish visual system. After completing anatomic pathology-neuropathology residency training at Columbia University-New York Presbyterian Hospital, he was an attending neuropathologist at Columbia for two years and then moved to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. He is an assistant professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, a Norris Cotton Cancer Center Investigator, and a member of the E.D.I.T. (Emerging Diagnostic and Investigative Technologies) Program. His research aims to understand the complex interactions between tumors and the nervous system to devise novel therapeutic strategies for cancer patients.
