Bio

For much of my career, I led a research team that used cell biology and genetics to investigate how cells divide and how they communicate.  I was then President and Director of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center where I began contributing to the early detection of cancer through leadership in protein biomarker discovery.  At ASU I have appointments in the Schools of Education, Biomedical Engineering, and Sustainability

Research Interests

Currently, I advise a Biosignatures Program at Chang Gung University and Hospital, in Taipei working to discover biomarkers in oral cancer, colon cancer and other diseases.  I also lead the HoneyBee program at ASU overseeing a series of small clinical trials using wearable devices to monitor clinical patients for a variety of disease and physiological parameters.

In education at ASU, I lead a small group that developed and teaches a course, Sustainability Science for pre-service K-8 Teachers, and aspires to provide continuing education for in-service teachers.  In addition I teach a variety of small courses exploring the question of “What is an appropriate educational experience for the 21st Century”.
