Daniel Gould grew up in Sacramento, California attending UCLA, where he received a BS in Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics. During this time he did research in the lab of Dr. Joan Valentine, who inspired him to pursue a career in research. He was then accepted in 2006 to the NIH sponsored Medical Scientist Training Program at Baylor College of Medicine, where he worked towards a combination MD/PhD. He completed his PhD in Bioengineering at Rice University in 2011, under the tutelage of Jennifer West and Mary Dickinson. His doctoral thesis work focused on tailoring angiogenesis in vivo. He studied tissue engineering and helped develop novel biomaterials for stem cell transplantation. He is now completing medical school and hopes to integrate training in tissue engineering with a career as a plastic surgeon. Ultimately his goals include the implantation of tissue engineered constructs in humans to alleviate human disease.
