Professor Michael Mackey, Joseph Morley Drake Professor of Physiology, ex-directors of CAMBAM, and CND, received his undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of Kansas in 1963, and his doctorate in Physiology and Biophysics from the University of Washington in 1968. In 1971, he joined McGill University as a member of the Department of Physiology. He currently holds associate membership in the McGill Departments of Mathematics and Physics, teaching in all three departments. Dr. Mackey received a research prize in 1993 from the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung, was elected to the Royal Society of Canada in 1999. He is a Fellow of the Hanse Wissenschaftkolleg (2000), the American Physical Society (2006) and SIAM (2009), and was the Leverhulme Visiting Professor of Mathematical Biology at Oxford University in the 2001 and 2002 academic years. Dr. Mackey has been a member of the PIMS SRP since 2009. His research interests include the dynamics of physiological systems, and the foundations of statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics. Furthermore, his focus is on the mathematical modeling of physiological processes at the cellular and molecular level.
