Joan Greve, PhD
Joan earned a B.S. in engineering (bioengineering) from the University of Washington. After working within the biomedical imaging group at Genentech, Inc., she earned her Ph.D. from Stanford’s first graduating class of bioengineers and her thesis work included the first data to combine MRI and computational fluid dynamics modeling of the cardiovascular system in murine and rat models. Returning to the biomedical imaging group at Genentech, Joan led its preclinical MRI lab and also helped to translate an antibody to treat Alzheimer’s disease. Following, Joan joined the faculty of University of Michigan’s Biomedical Engineering department where she led its preclinical MRI lab, while her research team pursued precision approaches in preclinical studies and she provided leadership to the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees as Vice-Chair.
Joan joined NIH in 2020, first with NIBIB and focused on workforce development and more recently with NCI in the Small Business Development Center. Joan seeks to center diversity-equity-inclusion-accessibility, whether advancing careers, research, translation, or commercialization.
