Tyson is an MD/PhD candidate in the UCSF School of Medicine and UCSF/UCB
Bioengineering program. He graduated magna cum laude from UCSD with a B.S. and highest honors in Physics and a minor in music. As an undergraduate, he conducted original research in multi-photon imaging and nonlinear interactions of light with matter. He has worked with the Center for Theoretical Biophysics at UCSD and with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Tyson's subsequent experiences in medical school motivated him to pursue research in vascular disease. He joined Dr. Wang's laboratory in July of 2007.

Tyson utilizes advanced optical imaging and analytical methods to investigate vascular development in the living system with molecular specificity and sub-cellular resolution. His primary focus is elucidating the role of Notch signaling and hemodynamics in the pathogenesis of Brain Arteriovenous Malformation and in beneficial vascular remodeling. His research may provide important insight into vascular diseases and potential therapies.
