Wes Alexander

Professor Emeritus 

J. Wesley Alexander, MD, ScD received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. Following medical school, he trained in general and thoracic surgery at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. After two years at the U.S. Army Surgical Research Unit Burn Facility in San Antonio TX, he developed a number of programs including those related to pediatric burn care, bariatric surgery, and organ transplantation. Dr. Alexander founded the first transplant program at what is now University Hospital and led the Transplant Division for more than 30 years. In this leadership role, he completed the hospital’s first kidney transplant in 1967 and expanded transplantation services to include both the liver and pancreas. A true surgeon-scientist, Dr. Alexander received National Institutes of Health research funding nearly 40 consecutive years and made major contributions to the fields of surgical infection, burn injury, transplantation, post-surgical nutrition and bariatric surgery. He has more than 700 publications, primarily focusing on surgical infections, surgical nutrition, transplant surgery and burn surgery.

Jerry Lingrel.

Molecular Genetics

Jerry B. Lingrel received his PhD in Biochemistry from The Ohio State University and did his postdoctoral work at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California. He served 28 years as the Chair of the Department of Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry and Microbiology, College of Medicine and also served as an Interim Chair of the Department of Cancer Biology and is presently interim chair of Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry and Microbiology. He also served as Chair of Graduate Fellows. His work centers around control of gene expression and his laboratory was the first to isolate and characterize a mRNA. His laboratory has identified a number of Na,K-ATPase genes and studied their function in brain, kidney, heart and the vascular system. His laboratory discovered a transcription factor 2 (KLF2) and defined its role in the vascular system demonstrating that it is protective against atherosclerosis. Dr. Lingrel has received the Sigma Xi Outstanding Scientist award (1972), the George Rieveschl for Distinguished Scientific Research award (1978), and is a Distinguished Research Professor at University of Cincinnati. He also received the Drake Medal, the highest award in the College of Medicine in 2002.

ROBBINS, Jeffrey PhD
Peds-Molec Cardio Biology
Professor, Director

Dr. Robbins received his PhD in Genetics and Development in 1976 from the University of Connecticut and, after taking a short fellowship with Jerry B. Lingrel, was appointed as Assistant Professor in the College of Medicine at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He rose through the academic ranks, obtaining tenure and left Missouri to join the Department of Pharmacology and Cell Biophysics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in 1987. In 1993 he moved to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital to start the new division of Molecular Cardiovascular Biology and in July 2009, formed the Heart Institute, integrating the basic and clinical arms of Pediatric Cardiology. He has won a number of teaching and research awards, including the Golden Apple awarded by the medical students for excellence in teaching, the Kaplan Award for innovative research, the National Research Achievement Award from the American Heart Association, the Presidential Award from the International Society for Heart Research, the Rieveschel Award for Outstanding Research Achievements, the Drake Medal and the Distinguished Scientist Award from the American Heart Association and the Lucian Award for Innovation in Cardiovascular Research. He was an Established Investigator of the American Heart Association as well and was named the Fyler Visiting Professor at Harvard.

Peter Stambrook

Cell Biology

Peter J. Stambrook received his PhD in developmental biology from SUNY Buffalo. Following a two year NIH postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Kentucky Medical Center, he took his first position as an assistant member with the Carnegie Institution of Washington, in Baltimore, followed by six years as a faculty member at Case Western Reserve University. He moved to the UC College of Medicine as an associate professor in 1981, coincident with being awarded a Fogarty Senior International Fellowship to work at St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London. At UC, he served as the associate director of the Cancer Center 1989–2005. In 1996, he was appointed the Frances Brunning Professor and chair of the Department of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy (now named the Department of Cancer Biology) and served in that capacity until 2008. He served as editor-in-chief of Mutation Research for 12 years and is currently an Associate Editor for Experimental Biology and Medicine. He is the Past President of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS) and President–Elect of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine. He is the recipient of the Osserman Award for Service to Cancer Research (1998), the EMGS Award (2013), and the Distinguished Scientist Award from the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine (2015). He has received the George Rieveschl Award for Distinguished Scientific Research (2013), the Daniel Drake Medal (2013), the highest recognition bestowed by the College of Medicine, and was recognized as a Distinguished Research Professor in 2015.
