Dr. Boise received his Ph.D. at the Medical College of Virginia and did his postdoctoral training at the University of Michigan and University of Chicago before taking a faculty position at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. After rising to the level of Professor, he moved to Emory University in 2009 where he is currently Professor and Vice Chair for Basic Research in the Department of Hematology and Medical Oncology and Professor of Cell Biology in the Emory School of Medicine. He is also the co-leader of the Cancer Cell Biology Program at the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University. He studies myeloma cell and molecular biology with the goal of providing a better understanding of molecular vulnerabilities for therapeutic targeting as well as understanding the molecular basis of therapeutic sensitivity and resistance. Several of his preclinical studies have translated to clinical trials. He is also very active in the training of the next generation of scientists and physician-scientists.
