Thomas J. Meade, PhD

Eileen M. Foell Professor of Chemistry, Professor of Molecular Biosciences, Professor of Neurobiology, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences; Professor of Radiology, Feinberg School of Medicine; Director of Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging; Member of Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University

Thomas Meade, Ph.D., received a B.S. in chemistry, his M.S. in biochemistry and Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry. After completing postdoctoral fellowships at Harvard Medical School and the California Institute of Technology, he joined the faculty at Caltech and the Beckman Institute where he pioneered the development of the first bioactivated MR probes and new hand-held chips for DNA diagnostics. In 2002, he moved to Northwestern University, where he is currently the Eileen M. Foell Professor of Cancer Research and Professor of Chemistry, Molecular Biosciences, Neurobiology & Physiology, and Radiology, as well as the Director of the Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging. He is the recipient of numerous awards and has founded 3 biotechnology companies. Professor Meade's research focuses on bioinorganic coordination chemistry and its application in research that include biological molecular imaging, transcription factor inhibitors and the development of electronic biosensors for the detection of DNA and proteins.
