Emil R. Unanue Distinguished Professor of Pathology & Immunology
Gwendalyn J. Randolph obtained her bachelor's degree in Biology from Temple University and PhD in Molecular and Cellular Pathology from State University of New York at Stony Brook, working with Martha Furie. She then carried out postdoctoral studies at Rockefeller University and Weill Medical School of Cornell University under the mentorship of Bill Muller and Ralph Steinman. She spent 11 years on the faculty at Mount Sinai School of School of Medicine in New York before relocating to Washington University in 2011. She is currently the Emil R. Unanue Professor of Immunobiology in the Department of Pathology and Immunology at Washington University in St. Louis. She is also the Director of the Immunology Graduate Program at Washington University. Her awards include the NIH Director’s Pioneer Award (2015) and NIH MERIT Award (2016). Her laboratory considers how the transit of cells (eg., monocytes and dendritic cells) and molecules (eg., lipoproteins) out of tissue influences the inflammatory microenvironment. Her work considering cellular and molecular clearance through lymphatics has fostered key contributions to understanding the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, with recent effort in her laboratory shifting to consider inflammatory bowel diseases.
