PBMEF, San Francisco, USA
Marek Malecki MD PhD is President of Phoenix Biomolecular Engineering Foundation, Chief Executive Officer of the Center for Molecular Medicine, and Visiting Professor at the University of Wisconsin. He earned MD degree at the Medical Academy, Poznan followed by Residency/Fellowship in Molecular Medicine in Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen. He earned PhD at the National Academy of Sciences, Warsaw followed by the postdoctoral fellowships in molecular biology at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Salzburg and Vienna, ETH, Zurich, Utrecht University Medical School, Utrecht, Cancer Center, Vienna, Cancer Center, Amsterdam, Biozentrum, Basel. Dr Malecki developed a novel technology to identify and isolate single living pluripotent stem cells followed by their clonal expansion and molecular profiling including sequencing their proteomes, transcriptomes, and genomes. This technology serves also for reprogramming the stem cells for their use as the vectors in gene therapy of cancer. The technology, protected by the US and WIPO, is currently streamlined to clinical trials. He is the first author on the peer-reviewed articles. He is often an invited speaker and courses’ faculty at the international professional conferences. Dr Malecki is Editor in Chief of the Journal of Genetic Syndromes and Gene Therapy and Member of the Editorial Boards for many high-impact professional journals. He is the member of the American Medical Association, American Association of Human Genetics, American Antibody Society, Southern California Biotechnology Council, and Rho Chi Honor Society for Excellence in Teaching and as the Faculty Role Model.
