Michael F. Clarke, MD is a Professor of Medicine and Stanford University. He is the Karel and Avice Beekhuis Professor in Cancer Biology and the Associate Director, Stanford Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Clarke was the first to isolate and characterize cancer stem cells from solid cancers including breast cancer and has identified critical regulators of normal and cancer stem cell functions. These discoveries have implications for the treatment of both cancer and degenerative diseases. Recent findings have led to new treatment algorithms that will result in increased survival of patients with early stage colon cancer.
