- Senior Investigator, Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology
Dr. Weigert obtained his B.Sc. in chemistry in 1992 from the University of Catania (Italy). He joined the Department of Cell Biology at the Mario Negri Institute (Dr. Alberto Luini) and in 2000 he received his Ph.D. from the Open University of London. In 2001 Dr. Weigert joined the NHLBI at NIH, as a research fellow in the Laboratory of Cell Biology (Dr. Julie Donaldson). In 2006, he joined the NIDCR as chief of the Intracellular Membrane Trafficking Unit, and he was tenured in 2014. In 2015, Dr. Weigert joined the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology at the NCI.
