Mahendra Logani received his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the Aligarh University, Aligarh, India, in 1967. He completed his postdoctoral training at the National Chemical Laboratory (Poona, India) and at the Smith College (Northampton, Mass, USA). He joined the Temple University School of Medicine (Philadelphia, Pa, USA) in 1969 and has since held faculty appointments in dermatology and biomedical physics. At present, he is a Professor at the Center for Biomedical Physics. His research interests include the effect of millimeter waves on the immune system, the role of free radicals and lipid oxidation in tumor promotion, and the mechanisms of ultraviolet-light-induced skin cancer. He has successfully completed several research studies funded by the National Institutes of Health that contribute to our understanding of the use of millimeter waves as a therapeutic tool to limit cancer progression and to reduce the toxic side effects of chemotherapy. Logani has published over 50 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals and has presented his work all over the world. He has been a reviewer for several prestigious journals. His biographical data is included in Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, and 2000 Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st century (International Biographical Center, Cambridge, England).
