Biography: Lana Garmire, PhD | Professor, University of Michigan
Dr. Garmire is an awardee of US Presidential Early Career Scientisits and Engineers in 2019, the highest honor bestowed to the most outstanding early career scientisits and engineers in the United States. Before joining University of Michigan DCMB department, she rapidly rose to tenure (Dec. 2012 to Jun. 2017) at University of Hawaii Cancer Center before moving to University of Michigan in 2018. She is a nationally and internationally recognizable translational bioinformatics scientist leading a multidisciplinary team of computational and experimental human genomics. Garmire has won numerous competitive federal grant awards as the PI, and her research is currently funded by a BD2K K01 and 3 concurrent NIH R01s. Garmire obtained the MA degree in Statistics (2005) and PhD degree in Comparative Biochemistry (Computational Biology focus, 2007), both from UC-Berkeley. She then did her postdoctoral training (2008-2011) under the joint mentorship of Prof. Shankar Subramaniam in the Bioengineering Dept. and Prof. Christopher Glass in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, UC-San Diego. She has published over 60 papers in high quality journals including Cell and Nature series, predominantly as the senior author, and served on various NIH study sections. She is a strong advocate for open science research and women in STEM, with twitter handle @GarmireGroup.
