Bio

Jason Aliotta, MD is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Division of Pulmonary, Sleep and Critical Care Medicine, Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, RI. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, he carried out bone marrow transplantation studies in lethally-irradiated mice to determine the contribution of transplanted marrow cells to the cellular component of the injured lung. In more recent years as PI or co-Investigator on NIH-funded grants, he participated in projects by developing an in vitro co-culture system to study the interactions between lung cell-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) and bone marrow cells. Dr. Aliotta has recently applied these techniques to a monocrotaline model of pulmonary hypertension, focusing on the role of EVs isolated from monocrotaline-injured animals in the pathogenesis of pulmonary hypertension.

Dr. Aliotta completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston MA, followed by fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI.

COBRE Abstract

Dr. Aliotta’s research focuses on the interaction between the pulmonary vasculature and bone marrow via circulating extracellular vesicles. His pilot project is entitled “The role of extracellular vesicles in the pathogenesis of pulmonary hypertension”. The long-term goal is to identity an alternative target for developing therapies for PAH.
