Speaker Bio

David J. Beebe is the Claude Bernard Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Co-Leader of the Tumor Microenvironment Program in the UW Carbone Cancer Center, and a John D. MacArthur Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is the recipient of the IEEE EMBS Early Career Achievement Award, the Lab on a Chip, Royal Society of Chemistry/Corning, Pioneers of Miniaturization Prize, the Romnes Award at UW-Madison and is a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. In addition, Dr. Beebe was a founding Scientific Editor of Integrative Biology. David’s current research interests center on the understanding and application of micro scale physical phenomena to understand cancer biology (e.g. stromal-epithelial and cell-matrix interactions), improve cancer diagnosis and monitoring and advance global disease diagnostics. His migration to more biological focused research was facilitated by an 5 year NIH “retraining” award in cancer biology. He has published more than 200 archived journal articles with more than 20,000 citations (h-index of 70). He has also co-founded 4 biotechnology companies. He has received over $25 million in funding (as PI) for his research from NIH, NSF, USDA, DARPA, DOD, DHS, ONR, Coulter Foundation, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Whitaker Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, WARF and the University of Wisconsin.
