Academic Bio

Dr. Andrew S. Weyrich’s research examines how blood clots in health and disease. His group made the seminal discovery in 2005 that anucleate human platelets splice precursor messenger RNA into products that regulate inflammation. This paradigm shifting observation revolutionized the field of hematology, and has led to thousands of studies that use mRNA profiling to understand how platelets regulate thrombosis and inflammation - which is now referred to as "thromboinflammation". Dr. Weyrich has delivered more than 100 national and international talks and keynote addresses, and he has received numerous investigator research awards from the Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (ATVB), the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), and the prestigious William Dameshek prize from the American Society of Hematology (ASH). The University of Utah has also recognized him with an H.A. and Edna Benning Presidential Endowed Chair and he recently received the John R. Hoidal Senior Investigator Award. Dr. Weyrich has published more than 150 peer-reviewed articles and has been funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) for over 25 years, including during his tenure as the Vice President for Research (VPR). Dr. Weyrich is also a member of the esteemed NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood (NHLBI) advisory council.

U Research Leadership

In addition to Dr. Weyrich’s prolific research work, he also serves as the University of Utah’s Vice President for Research and President of the University’s Research Foundation and Innovation District since July 2016. Previous to these appointments, he was the Associate Dean of Research at the Health Sciences. As a leader of the U’s research community, Dr. Weyrich has implemented strategic initiatives and programs that continues to drive diverse and inclusive research excellence at the U and also contributes more than $500 million annually to the Utah economy. During his service, the U’s research portfolio has been on an upward trajectory with an average annual increase of 27% in extramural awards that totaled over $3.5 billion dollars. The U received national research recognitions including membership in the Association of American Universities and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) Innovation and Economic Prosperity designation. He has also launched numerous research programs, including critical topics in: Women in Violence; COVID-19; Opioid Crisis; and Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Research. Since assuming responsibility in 2019, Dr. Weyrich spearheaded important safety initiatives in research laboratories and work spaces to strengthen campus-wide safety that included restructuring of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) and the development of stronger working relationships between EHS and research-intensive units. He also worked with UU Health Operations and the Research Cores to stand-up surveillance testing for the entire UU community. Dr. Weyrich’s support for future generations in research is built upon his passion for mentorship and student engagement. Dr. Weyrich has taught and mentored undergraduate, graduate, and medical students since his career began, and he currently directs training grant programs that support research for medical students and postdoctoral fellows. He also works closely with Undergraduate Research Programs at the U to help provide impactful resources to enhance the U student research experience and career mobility.
