Elaine R. Mardis, PhD (SAB Chair) Dr. Elaine Mardis graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Oklahoma with a B.S. degree in zoology. She then completed her Ph.D. in Chemistry and Biochemistry in 1989, also at Oklahoma. Following graduation, Dr. Mardis was a senior research scientist for four years at BioRad Laboratories in Hercules, CA.
In 1993, Dr. Mardis joined The Genome Institute at Washington University School of Medicine. As Director of Technology Development, she helped create methods and automation pipelines for sequencing the Human Genome. She currently orchestrates the Center's efforts to explore massively parallel sequencing technologies and to transition them into production sequencing capabilities as well as new applications.
Dr. Mardis has research interests in the application of DNA sequencing to characterize cancer genomes and transcriptomes, and using these data to support therapeutic decision-making. She also is interested in facilitating the translation of basic science discoveries about human disease into the clinical setting.
Dr. Mardis serves as an editorial board member of Molecular Cancer Research, Genome Research and Molecular Oncology, and acts as a reviewer for Nature, the New England Journal of Medicine, Cell and Genome Research. She serves on the scientific advisory boards of Qiagen Ingenuity, DNA Nexus, and ZS Genetics. Dr. Mardis received the Scripps Translational Research award for her work on cancer genomics in 2010, and was named a Distinguished Alumni of the University of Oklahoma College of Arts and Sciences for 2011.
