Resident in Pathology
Bio Alex Gitlin, M.D., Ph.D. is currently a 3rd year resident in clinical pathology at Stanford University. 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 Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the Tri-Institutional M.D.-Ph.D. program. During his graduate training, Dr. Gitlin focused on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying germinal center reactions and the formation of long-lived humoral immunity. His work elucidated the mechanisms by which CD4+ T cells induce selective clonal expansion of germinal center B cells during the immune response. Currently, Alex's clinical and research interests lie in understanding how inflammatory signaling pathways regulate different forms of programmed cell death and inflammation.
Research Assistant, Pathology Sponsored Projects
Bio Matthew received his B.S. in Neuroscience from the University of Michigan in 2018. There he worked in the lab of Dr. Paul Jenkins studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neuropsychiatric disease. Matthew joined the Howitt lab at Stanford in the fall of 2018, where he is studying the role of the intestinal epithelium in microbial sensing and immune modulation.
Assistant Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in addressing questions in neuronal development and function by a combination of genetic, cell biological, biochemical and chemical approaches.
The main focus of our lab is centered around two topics: 1) the interface of signaling and gene regulation in neuronal development, with a focus on calcineurin-NFAT signaling; 2) the development of small molecules, which interfere with protein-protein interactions underlying neurodegenerative diseases.
Associate Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I have research interests in the interaction of hematolymphoid neoplasia with the microenvironment. For example, I use a combination of immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence and image analysis techniques to evaluate the mesenchymal stromal cell compartment in myelodysplastic syndrome (pre-leukemic bone marrow failure disorder). I also have interests in lymphoma vasculature and the tropism of lymphoma for specific types of vasculature.
Florette K. Gray Hazard
Associate Professor of Pathology and of Pediatrics at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My scholarly pursuits are primarily focused on the study of death and disease in the pediatric population. It is through this work that I am able to explore fundamental concepts of neoplasia, such as histogenesis and mutagenesis, while utilizing a variety of investigational techniques.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Pathology
Bio After 3 years in OBGYN residency program in Israel I decided to pursue a dream and joined the Angelo lab to conduct placental research. I am particularly interested in decidual immune cell populations in normal placentation and in obstetric complications, such as preeclampsia and preterm birth.
