Michael Lenardo

Senior Investigator

Michael Joseph Lenardo, M.D.
Michael Lenardo was born in Chicago, Illinois on December 1, 1955. He attended the Johns Hopkins University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Natural Sciences in 1977. He attended Washington University St. Louis, Mo. and obtained his Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) in 1981. He carried out clinical and research training at the University of Iowa from 1981-1985. He was then a Research Fellow at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research at Massachusetts Institute of Technology with an adjunct appointment at Harvard Medical School. During this time, he carried out molecular biology research under the mentorship of Nobel laureates David Baltimore and Philip Sharp. He was then appointed Section Chief in the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health from 1989 to the present, directing research on T-lymphocyte regulation, HIV-1, and genetic diseases of the immune system. Dr. Lenardo has published over 200 scholarly works and holds a number of medical patents. He discovered the propriocidal mechanism of immune regulation and his work has defined several genetic diseases of the immune system including the Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome, Caspase-8 deficiency syndrome, and X-linked magnesium deficiency with EBV and neoplasia (XMEN) disease. He is currently the Director of the Clinical Genomics Program and Chief of the Molecular Development Section, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Carole Ober

University of Chicago

Carole Ober, PhD is the Blum-Riese Professor and Chair of the Human Genetics department at the University of Chicago. Her research focuses on the genetics and genomics of complex human phenotypes, with particular emphases on asthma and gene-environment interactions. She is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, co-chairs the EVE Consortium on Asthma Genetics, and serves on advisory committees for national research programs on preterm birth, Alzheimer’s disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. She has received numerous awards for her research contributions, including the Charles Reed Lectureship (2004) and the John E. Salvaggio Memorial Lectureship (2016) from the American Association of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology.
