Dr. Elaine Hurt received her PhD in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics from the University of Minnesota in 1999 where she studied estrogen receptor signaling cascades. Dr. Hurt did her post-doctoral studies at the National Institutes of Health in the laboratory of Dr. Louis Staudt elucidating the molecular mechanisms governing therapeutic responses in lymphoma and multiple myeloma patients. In 2010, Dr. Hurt joined MedImmune to lead their cancer stem cell group. Prior to joining MedImmune, Dr. Hurt was a Staff Scientist at the National Cancer Institute, where she focused primarily on identifying and targeting prostate cancer stem cells. In 2014, Dr. Hurt became Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Maryland. She is the co-inventor on several patents, has been an invited speaker at numerous conferences, and has published over 50 scientific articles.
