Paul T. Winnard received an M.S. degree in biochemistry from the University of NH, Durham, NH, USA, in 1988, after which he garnered expertise in biochemistry/physical biochemistry, immunopathology, toxicology, and nuclear medicine through working at UNH, MGH, MIT, and the MA University School of Medicine. In 2001, he received a Ph.D. degree in molecular biology and biochemistry from the University of Maine, Orono, Me, USA. Winnard has been working in the Department of Radiology in association with the Department of Oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Md, USA, for the last 11+ years. Currently he serves as a Research Associate at JHU. His areas of expertise include protein purification from whole tissue and from overexpression in bacteria, enzyme kinetic studies, radiolabelling of macromolecules for imaging as well as therapy, a comprehensive background in biochemical and molecular biology methodologies, and working with a variety of rodent model systems, in addition to a broad expertise in oncology including drug and nutraceutical development as well as noninvasive imaging technologies. The group he works with specializes in MRI, MRIS, and PET imaging in preclinical as well as clinical settings. His interests are to develop a better understanding at the systems level of breast, pancreatic, lung cancer, and cachexia. His major goal is to disseminate information about strategies that can be adopted to prevent cancer. This information is meant for physicians as well as the general public. Winnard also wants to develop/discover new means to easily detect early cancer and treat it, as well as cachexia, with nontoxic therapies.
