Vice President, Research and Development

       Dr. Elliott received his undergraduate degree in Biology from Franklin and Marshall College and went on to do his Genetics Ph.D. training at Thomas Jefferson University and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His thesis involved studying the role of CREB-binding protein in germline and stem cell development. Dr. Elliott conducted his postdoctoral training in the cancer stem cell department at the Novartis Institute for Functional Genomics in San Diego, CA., where he studied potential drug targets for chemotherapeutic resistance and identified the first mitochondrial ABC transporter implicated in cancer drug resistance.
