    Alex Gitlin

    Instructor, Pathology

    BioAlex 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.

  • Matthew Gologorsky

    Matthew Gologorsky

    Research Assistant, Pathology Sponsored Projects

    BioMatthew received his B.S. in Neuroscience from the University of Michigan in 2018. There, he worked in the lab of Dr. Paul Jenkins exploring the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying bipolar disorder. After graduating from college, Matthew joined the Howitt lab at Stanford where he is currently investigating how the gut epithelium, immune system, and nervous system work cooperatively to defend against intestinal parasites.

  • Dita Gratzinger

    Dita Gratzinger

    Associate Professor of Pathology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI 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.

  • Wei Gu

    Wei Gu

    Assistant Professor of Pathology

    BioWei Gu, MD, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Pathology at Stanford University was trained as a physician, engineer, and scientist. He is a leader and pioneered new technologies in cell-free DNA 'liquid biopsy' diagnostics, microfluidics, and clinical metagenomic sequencing across diverse fields, including prenatal diagnostics, infectious disease, metagenomics, oncology, CRISPR diagnostics, and COVID diagnostics. His research group seeks to maximize the diagnostic potential from this data obtained through minimally invasive or non-invasive sampling. We will engineer the necessary tools to digitize nucleic acids into useful diagnostic content. He has been awarded multiple extramural grants, including the Burroughs Wellcome Career Award, and a K08 from the National Cancer Institute. He is also a board-certified molecular and clinical pathologist and has a clinical practice within Stanford Healthcare.
