Dr. Jeffrey Gold is director of neonatal neurology at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an associate professor of neurosciences and pediatrics, epilepsy and neurophysiology at UC San Diego.

Dr. Gold grew up in Des Moines, Iowa and earned his undergraduate degree in neurosciences from UC Los Angeles. He attended UC San Diego for his medical and graduate studies. His Ph.D. thesis, conducted under the supervision of Dr. Larry Squire, was titled "The Functional Neuroanatomy of Human Declarative Memory." He completed his residency in child neurology and his fellowship in clinical neurophysiology at UC San Diego and Rady Children's.

Dr. Gold specializes in the treatment of children with epilepsy. He is the interim director of the NeuroNICU service at UC San Diego and Rady Children's, where he sees newborns with neurologic disease. He is also a co-director of the Mind Brain Behavior course for the UC San Diego School of Medicine and runs the journal club for the UC San Diego neurology residents.
