Distinguished Alumni Award

Dr. Douglas Robinson is a Professor of Cell Biology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. In his research, he investigates how cells control their shapes for normal human health. His lab uses a model organism Dictyostelium to discover fundamental concepts and then applies these insights to human diseases, including cancer and lung disease.

Professor Robinson's lab has also built an outreach initiative for high school students from low-income and educationally under-resourced backgrounds. Now, he and his colleagues have expanded the effort by creating a pathway program called the Johns Hopkins Initiative for Careers in Science and Medicine (CSM), which includes programs for 5th grade, high school, undergraduate and post-baccalaureate scholars. The CSM has now served over 635 scholars.

Professor Robinson graduated from Purdue University with Honors in 1991. He continued his education at Yale University's School of Medicine, earning his Master's and doctorate degrees from the school.
