Speaker Biography:

Mike MakrigiorgosG. Mike Makrigiorgos, Ph.D., Director, Biophysics Laboratory and Medical Physics Division, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School

Dr. Makrigiorgos received his PhD in medical physics from the University of Leeds, UK, in 1984 and his postdoctoral training in radiation biology from Harvard Medical School. Since 1990, he has been a member of the Physics Division of the Department of Radiation Therapy, Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center. He currently directs the biophysics radiation research effort and serves as the Chief of the Division of Medical Physics and Biophysics of the Department of Radiation Oncology. His laboratory develops technologies for DNA analysis and detection of cancer DNA biomarkers in blood, tumor tissue and bodily fluids.

Fred KramerFred Russell Kramer, Ph.D., Professor, Dept of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, Public Health Research Institute, New Jersey Medical School

Fred Russell Kramer is Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at the New Jersey Medical School. After receiving a doctorate from the Rockefeller University, he was a member of the faculty of Columbia University for 17 years, and then moved his laboratory to the Public Health Research Institute, where he has carried out research with his colleagues for the past 26 years.

Steve MillerSteve Miller, M.D., Ph.D., Director, UCSF Clinical Microbiology Laboratory

Dr. Steve Miller is an Assistant Professor and Director at the UCSF Clinical Microbiology Laboratory. Dr. Miller is interested in the use of molecular methods for diagnosis and monitoring of clinical infectious disease, particularly in immunocompromised and transplant patients. Conventional clinical testing often is unable to identify pathogens of interest in patient samples, and his research aims to develop methods to better identify infectious agents, which could improve patient care and public health.
