Alex Gitlin, M.D., Ph.D. is an Instructor in the Department of Pathology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Prior to Stanford, Alex received his M.D. from Weill Cornell Medicine (2017) and his Ph.D. from Rockefeller University (2016) as part of the Weill Cornell/Sloan-Kettering/Rockefeller, Tri-Institutional M.D.-Ph.D. program. During his graduate training, Alex worked on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying germinal center reactions and the formation of long-lived humoral immunity. His work helped elucidate the mechanisms by which CD4+ T cells induce selective clonal expansion of germinal center B cells during immune responses. Currently, Alex's clinical and research interests lie in understanding the molecular basis of inflammatory immune responses in the context of normal and genetically immunodeficient states.
