Who is Alex Wollet?
“Clark Kent” lookalike has since been identified as Alex Wollet, a 23-year-old medical student from Youngstown, Ohio.
He graduated from Cardinal Mooney High School in 2017, where the 5-foot-10 student played basketball — wearing jersey No. 15 and sporting a Justin Bieber bowl cut circa 2009 — and went on to study neuroscience at Ohio State University.
While there’s not much information readily available about Alex, the NIH did share a quote from the med student about why he wanted to do cancer research back in May on Twitter. “As a grandson of a brain cancer patient, I have been able to experience the debilitating effects of the disease on both the patient and family. I am inspired by the resilience and strength of this patient population and the passion and unwavering dedication of providers in the field of Neuro-Oncology,” he said.
