Ashton Lehmann, M.D.


Dr. Ashton Lehmann is a resident in otolaryngology—head and neck surgery at Mass. Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School. She graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor's in Neuroscience from Middlebury College in 2009 prior to earning her medical degree from Harvard Medical School in 2014.

Her previous research has focused on iron deficiency in international adoptees, early-life nutritional disturbances on the developing brain in rodent models, and exploration of potential treatments to rescue cognitive deficits in a rodent model of schizophrenia. Beginning in medical school, she worked in Dr. Daniel J. Lee’s laboratory to histologically characterize novel approaches to improving auditory brainstem implants. She is currently working with Dr. Ralph B. Metson, pursuing outcomes research in rhinology and seeking a biomarker for chronic rhinosinusitis.

Her future plans include pursuing fellowship training in rhinology at Mass. Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School.

For more information on Dr. Lehmann, check out her Harvard Catalyst website and Google Scholar page.
