David Beebe, PhD
Professor, Biomedical Engineering
University of Wisconsin
“Microscale Tools Enable Functional and Mechanistic Insights in Cancer”
Monday February 20th, 2017
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.
