Qualifications & Experience

David Warmflash, M.D. is a physician, astrobiologist, space medicine researcher, science communicator, and author, whose public appearances explaining science have included Oregon Public Broadcasting TV and numerous panels and interviews on various podcasts and radio shows. As a researcher with the Israeli Aerospace Medicine Institute (IAMI), he is currently consulting on seven biomedical experiments that will be launched aboard the SpaceX Axiom 1 (AX1) spaceflight to the International Space Station (ISS) in January, 2022. David is director of medical research for the Mgenuity Corporation, has served as science lead for the U.S. team of the Planetary Society’s Phobos Living Interplanetary Flight Experiment, and authors continuing medical education materials (CME) for physicians and is a contributor to Medscape Neurology and to various magazines and other media outlets, covering a range of science topics, from the search for extraterrestrial life and space exploration to the origins of life, genetics, neuroscience, biotechnology, and the history of science. He also authors practice questions and answer explanations for the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), and other such exams.

David consults on medical issues for various companies and is the author of "Moon: An Illustrated History" (Sterling Press, 2019), contributed to the book "George and the Blue Moon" by Lucy Hawking and the late Stephen Hawking, and is developing a new book focussing on space biomedicine. He earned his M.D. from the Tel Aviv University Sackler School of Medicine, and has done postdoctoral work at Brandeis University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the NASA Johnson Space Center, where he was part of the NASA’s first cohort of astrobiology training fellows. He earned his Bachelor’s degree of Science in Zoology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

David enjoys, and loves explaining, many of the very subjects that often scare students in medical school, premedical students, and those studying, or preparing to study, in the health sciences. If you're having trouble in these areas, or even if you just want to deepen your understanding of the topics to perfect your performance, he will be happy to tutor you, depending, of course, on his time availability, which does fluctuate. Rather than teaching you mnemonics and helping you to memorize without understanding, as is common in the health sciences, David will help you to understand the material, so that you don't need to memorize, except when absolutely necessary. As an example, if you to learn which ECG leads show pathology in which parts of the heart, you can do this by learning the electrophysiology and deriving what shows what based on the locations and polarities of each electrode. If you expect to memorize everything without conceptualizing, do not seek David as a tutor. But if you want to be one of the students who knows --and enjoys-- the material, because it makes sense, contact David and he will guide you through the beautiful mechanisms that manifest from the molecular to the gross level in physiology, biochemistry, and all of the areas that may be giving you trouble. He can tutor you in English, or in Spanish.
