Adam Oskowitz M.D., Ph.D. graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a Bachelors degree in Economics. He then attained a masters degree in public health at Dartmouth College. He completed his medical degree and gained his Ph.D. at Tulane University. His doctoral dissertation focused on elucidating the molecular mechanism that regulate stem cells, under the direction of Dr Darwin Prockop. He finished his general surgery residency at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2014. Dr. Oskowitz completed the fellowship in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at UCLA and is now on faculty at UCSF.

Dr. Oskowitz is interested in developing novel treatments for Aortic Aneurysms using stem cells. His is currently studying the molecular mechanisms that govern the therapeutic benefits of stem cells while developing unique ways to utilize cell based therapy.
