Dr. Molly Carnes did her undergraduate work at the University of Michigan
and received her M.D. from the State University of New York at Buffalo.  She trained in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics at the University of Wisconsin where she earned a Masters of Science Degree in Population Health.

At the University of Wisconsin, Dr. Carnes is a Professor in the Departments of Medicine, Psychiatry, and Industrial & Systems Engineering.  She directs the Center for Women’s Health Research and the Women Veterans Health Program.  Dr. Carnes co-founded and co-directs the Women in Science and Engineering Leadership Institute (WISELI).  She has led several initiatives aimed at increasing the diversity of academic medicine, science, and engineering.  Initially approaching this issue from an epidemiological perspective to try to identify what was “killing” women students on their way to becoming tenured faculty, Dr. Carnes has increasingly taken an organizational change approach.  She is leading a multi-level NIH-funded study involving 90 departments to assess the impact of a “Bias Literacy Workshop” and teaches a course annually on Women and Leadership in Medicine, Science and Engineering.

Dr. Carnes has published over 115 articles and received numerous past honors and awards including:

Dr. Greider's work focuses on telomeres and telomere shortening in disease. In 1984 along with Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, she discovered telomerase, the enzyme that maintains telomeres. Dr. Greider worked at Cold Spring Harbor laboratory for 10 years before moving in 1997 to The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In 2004, she was appointed as the Daniel Nathans Professor and Director of the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics. Dr. Greider has won a number of awards for the work on telomeres and telomerase. In 2003, Dr. Greider was elected to the National Academy of Sciences and to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2006, she was the co-recipient of the Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research. Dr. Greider currently directs a group of ten researchers who are focused on understanding telomeres and telomerase and their role in chromosome stability, stem cell failure and cancer.
