Alexander Weingart

Alumni of The University of Vermont
My long-term goal is to develop targeted therapies, precision medicine, where illness is treated at its molecular source instead of just dealing with the symptomatic consequences. I've studied under world-renowned pulmonologist and critical care physician-scientist, Sharon Rounds MD, at Brown University and I am excited to build upon this experience this upcoming summer. I will be continuing my studies at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine with Dr. Pierre Massion MD studying cellular determinants of lung cancer and joining him on clinical initiatives as a member of the prestigious MSTP Summer Scholars Program through The Leadership Alliance. This experience will provide an opportunity for new challenges and professional development in the field of medicine in an effort to gain real-world experience in the sector in which I hope to develop my career as a physician-scientist. I value transparency, vulnerability, and not wearing any masks around anyone in my network. I enjoy learning and mentorship, promoting positivity, and putting my best foot forward to challenge myself and push the boundaries of science and medicine. I also have a demonstrated history of successfully delivering effective presentations to diverse audiences with different levels of scientific expertise and experiences.

Visiting Undergradute Research Scholar at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
Mentor: Pierre Massion, MD, Cornelius Vanderbilt Chair in Medicine, Ingram Professor of Cancer Research, Professor of Medicine (Allergy, Pulmonary, and Critical Care) Program Participation: Medical Scientist Training Program & Leadership Alliance SR-EIP As a non-clinical research intern, I investigate phenotyping of bronchial airway cells, and study HBE single cell behavior. Through this project, I research the cellular determinants of lung cancer risk; study stem cells and progenitor cells of the airways; culture subpopulations of HBECs for single cell analysis at the epigenetic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolic level; characterize the immune component of the bronchial airway in health and disease; develop strategies for genetic reprogramming and chemoprevention; and develop respiratory mucosal epithelial replacement treatments for a range of diseases.
