About our Visiting Professors

Dr. Drew Weissman, an award-winning MD/PhD alumnus of BUSM, pioneered mRNA vaccine technology by demonstrating that modified nucleosides in RNA can suppress the activation of innate immune sensors and enable the translation of the mRNA leading to the synthesis of the encoded protein.

Talk Title: “Nucleoside-modified mRNA-LNP Therapeutics.”


Dr. Dale Abel is an esteemed clinician-scientist and educator. He has published extensively on the role of altered glucose metabolism in heart failure and cancer. He is also a thought leader on the power of collaborative science and the role of physician-scientists.
