Michael Karin (Biography
Michael Karin

Dr. Karin has spent his entire academic career investigating stress and inflammation signaling covering the entire gamut of research approaches from basic biochemistry through molecular cell biology to animal pathophysiology. After discovering how environmental stress caused by either infection, inflammation or exposure to toxic substances leads to activation of AP-1, NF-κB and other transcription factors, his lab began to examine the role of the key signaling pathways controlling these transcription factors in the pathogenesis of cancer, degenerative and metabolic diseases. Through this work, Dr. Karin has contributed to the founding of the Inflammation and Cancer field.

Linda M.S. Resar

Dr. Resar is recognized internationally for pioneering studies on the role of High Mobility Group A (HMGA) proteins in cancer. She discovered that HMGA genes function as potent oncogenes. Her laboratory also engineered the first transgenic mouse model definitively demonstrating that Hmga1 overexpression causes cancer in vivo. Dr. Resar has gone on to elucidate molecular mechanisms through which HMGA1 functions in cancer, cancer stem cells, and normal development, which is important because HMGA1 is overexpressed in most aggressive human tumors. She has authored over 80 manuscripts, 1 patent, and is a Professor of Medicine & Oncology and member of the Institute of Cellular Engineering and Pathobiology Graduate Program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
