Daniel Igor Branovan (Russian: Игорь Бранован; born October 11, 1967) is Director of the New York Eye and Ear Institute, an organization with branches and research staff in Europe and the U.S. Branovan has been involved actively in the affairs of the Russian American Jewish community in New York and nationally, serving on the board of directors of several community organizations.

Early Life

Branovan grew up in Kaliningrad (then Soviet Union), which he called a “little piece of Russia” on the Baltic Sea. He was raised an only child in a nonobservant home while his parents kept a secret connection to Israel. Although nonobservant, Branovan faced abuse at school for his Jewish heritage. Branovan's father was a neurosurgeon and his mother a chemist.

In 1980, when Dr. Branovan was 13, his parents seized the opportunity to move to America, settling in Philadelphia’s large Russian-Jewish community.

They arrived on a Friday. Monday morning, his parents handed him a token and put him alone on a bus. From that first ride, he climbed through the American school system, starting with a year of English as a second language classes and ending with a medical degree from Stanford University.

Along the way, as an undergraduate at Haverford College in Pennsylvania he met his wife, now a physician in New Jersey, who is also the child of Russian immigrants.[1]
