Ph.D., Director, Spatial Systems Biomedicine Center & Chair of Biomedical Engineering, OHSU
Dr. Joe Gray, an internationally renowned cancer and genomic researcher of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, became the new Gordon Moore Endowed Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering in 2011. He also serves as Director of OHSU’s Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine. Dr. Gray is known for his contributions in developing tests such as fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH), now transforming how treatments are selected for breast cancer patients. Because of his work on the FISH test and other accomplishments, the Stand Up To Cancer initiative selected him to co-lead the organization’s “Breast Cancer Dream Team,” which has been challenged to tackle some of the most ambitious cancer research conducted to date. His awards and honors include being elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies the E.O. Lawrence Award from the U.S. Department of Energy, the Curt Stern Award from the American Society for Human Genetics, a Team Science Award from the American Association for Cancer Research.
