    Taha Jan, MD is an Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery and is a fellowship-trained Otologist, Neurotologist, and Skull Base Surgeon. He graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor's in Molecular and Cellular Biology with Honors from Vanderbilt University prior to attending medical school at Stanford University. During medical school, he completed a one year Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) research fellowship in cochlear development, stem cell biology, and regenerative medicine. Dr. Jan then went onto his internship in General Surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) followed by residency in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary / Harvard Medical School Program in Boston. He then completed the Stanford University Clinician Scientist Training Program, a T32 postdoctoral research fellowship followed by Otology, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery clinical fellowship.

    Dr. Jan is a surgeon-scientist with a research interest in developmental and regenerative biology of the inner ear with the ultimate goal of translating discoveries in the laboratory to therapies in the clinic and operating room.
