Tian received her bachelor’s of science and master’s of science degree in Bioengineering from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). While at UCLA, she worked for four years as a lab assistant in the department of surgery/oncology researching glioblastoma multiforme stem cells. Since joining the Pierson Lab, Tian has been focusing on developing a mifepristone inducible gene regulation system for use in the central nervous system, as well as using induced pluripotent stem cells for pediatric disease modeling. She also manages the Pierson Lab.

Fabian "David" Nonis, PhD, received his doctorate in biology/neurosciences from Goethe University Frankfurt in Germany. His work focused on the elucidation of molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the neurodegenerative disease ataxia-2. He worked at the University of California, San Diego as a postdoctoral scientist investigating the role of local growth factors in disorders affecting the female reproductive system. His interests are centered on molecular and cellular mechanisms of pediatric neurological disorders. Specific research applications include using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and cell and molecular tools for pediatric disease modeling.
