Jack Kincaid credits his time at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) as paving the way for the many successes in his scholastic career. Kincaid graduated from CWRU in 2021, earning a BA in Nutritional Biochemistry and Metabolism as well as an MS in Nutrition through the Integrated Graduate Studies program. As an undergraduate, he was a member of Dr. Nathan Berger's lab, where he collaborated on studies investigating the impact of obesity and obesogenic diet on the development of acute promyelocytic leukemia and participated in the inaugural class for the Cancer-Focused Summer Undergraduate Research (CanSUR) program.

Kincaid pursued graduate studies at the University of Cambridge Institute of Metabolic Science, studying the genetic and neuroendocrine underpinnings of energy balance and metabolic disease. This February, he was awarded one of ~5 NIH Oxford-Cambridge MD/PhD Scholarships which allows him to combine U.S. medical training with PhD training split between the National Institutes of Health and the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. He returns to the U.S. in July to begin MD-PhD training at a Medical Scientist Training Program.
