Michael Heinrich M.D. is currently a Professor of Medicine at Oregon Health & Sciences University. He earned his medical degree in 1984 from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore and completed both his residency training and Hematology and Medical Oncology fellowship at OHSU. His primary research interest is in the development of novel tyrosine kinase inhibitors for treatment of human cancers. Dr. Heinrich's research includes both pre-clinical identification of novel molecular targets and testing of new agents in the laboratory and the clinic.  Dr. Heinrich has extensive national and international collaborations for his research into the molecular biology of sarcomas and hematologic malignacies.
