GARRY NOLAN, PHD — STANFORD UNIVERSITY
Dr. Nolan is the Rachford and Carlota A. Harris Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University School of Medicine. He has published over 300 research articles, holds 20 US patents, has received numerous prestigious awards, and has been honored as one of the top 25 inventors at Stanford University. Dr. Nolan has founded various companies, including Rigel Inc., Nodality Inc., BINA, and Akoya. His areas of research include hematopoiesis, cancer and leukemia, autoimmunity and inflammation, and computational approaches for network and systems immunology. Dr. Nolan’s recent efforts are focused on a single cell analysis advance using a mass spectrometry-flow cytometry hybrid device (CyTOF) and nanoscale imaging with the “Multiparameter Ion Beam Imager” (MIBI), with further imaging developments enabled by CODEX. Dr. Nolan’s efforts are to enable a deeper understanding not only of normal immune function, trauma, pathogen infection, and other inflammatory events, but also detailed substructures of leukemias and solid cancers, which will enable better clinical management.
