Dr. Davis’ history of interdisciplinary work, technology development, and attacking previously unsolvable biological problems (both in genetics and traumatology) makes him the ideal scientist to lead a collaborative consortium to solve the mystery of ME/CFS. Additionally, he brings a strong passion to this cause in hopes of finding a cure for his son, who suffers from a severe case.

Dr. Davis is a professor of Biochemistry and Genetics at Stanford University School of Medicine, and he is the director of the Stanford Genome Technology Center. Dr. Davis holds a PhD in chemistry from Caltech. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
