Dr. Drew Weissman, a 2023 Nobel Prize in Medicine recipient, heads the Weissman Lab and holds the Roberts Family Professor title for Vaccine Research. As the leader of the Penn Institute for RNA Innovation, his influence in the field is significant. Additionally, speaker Drew Weissman teaches at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and oversees Vaccine Research in the Infectious Diseases Division.
The Weissman team delves deep into nucleoside-modified mRNA and lipid nanoparticle (LNP) treatments. Their innovations, particularly in the safety and efficacy of nucleoside-modified mRNA, have paved the way for its use in the first two FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines. Their research encompasses two primary facets: 1) vaccine development and 2) mRNA protein treatments, which include monoclonal antibody delivery and gene modification. Though the team is eager to innovate new treatments, their foundation remains deeply rooted in scientific research, ensuring each therapeutic approach is grounded in solid basic science.
Possessing both M.D. and Ph.D. qualifications, science speaker Drew Weissman is a leading figure in immunology research. He and his team’s landmark discovery—a unique mRNA system that mitigates adverse immune reactions—now forms the backbone of targeted treatments for various global diseases, including being a key component in the fight against COVID-19.
Moving forward, the Weissman team remains committed to enhancing mRNA technology with a focus on developing impactful vaccines and pioneering novel therapeutic solutions.
