Robert G Hawley Robert G. Hawley Professor and Chair  Department of Anatomy and Regenerative Biology  The George Washington University  USA

Dr. Hawley received a B.S. in Chemical Physics from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada in 1979 and, after graduate studies at the Ontario Cancer Institute under the supervision of Dr. Nobumichi Hozumi, obtained his Ph.D. in Medical Biophysics from the University of Toronto in 1984. Following three years of postdoctoral training in developmental hematopoiesis with Dr. Beatrice Mintz at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia as a Fellow of the Medical Research Council of Canada, Dr. Hawley returned to Canada where he was a Career Scientist of the Ontario Cancer Treatment and Research Foundation, first at the Ottawa Cancer Center and subsequently in the Cancer Biology Division of the University of Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Science Center. In January 1996, Dr. Hawley moved to the Toronto General Hospital where he was Scientific Director of the Oncology Gene Therapy Program and Head of the Oncology Research Laboratories. He held these positions and was an Associate Professor of Medical Biophysics and Medicine at the University of Toronto until January 1999, when he joined the Jerome H. Holland Laboratory for the Biomedical Sciences in Rockville, Maryland—the national research and development division of American Red Cross Biomedical Services—to lead the newly created Hematopoiesis Department. Dr. Hawley was appointed to the faculty of The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences as Professor of Anatomy and Cell Biology in December 1999 in accordance with an Affiliation Agreement between GW and the Red Cross. In January 2002, Dr. Hawley was named Executive Director of Cell Therapy Research and Development at the Red Cross, assuming leadership of the Holland Laboratory’s Blood and Cell Therapy Development Department while maintaining his position as Head of the Hematopoiesis Department. In July 2004, Dr. Hawley relocated his laboratory to the GW Medical Center where he holds the King Fahd Endowed Professorship. In July 2007, Dr. Hawley was appointed Chair of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, which was renamed the Department of Anatomy and Regenerative Biology. Dr. Hawley is a member of the GW Institute for Biomedical Sciences’ Graduate Programs in Biochemistry and Systems Biology, Molecular Medicine, and Microbiology and Immunology, and he serves as the Course Director of BMSC 8212 (Developmental Cell Biology), an IBS core curriculum course taken in the Fall semester by all first year Ph.D. students.

Research Interest

Dr. Hawley’s research is concerned with basic aspects and experimental therapeutics involving normal and malignant cells of the hematopoietic system. He has published over 160 original and review articles on stem cell and regenerative biology, molecular hematology/oncology, gene therapy modeling and retroviral vectorology; and, together with Teresa Hawley, edited the second and third editions of Flow Cytometry Protocols published by Humana Press/Springer. Dr. Hawley is best known for developing the MSCV retroviral gene transfer vector, which has been used by more than 1,000 academic and biopharmaceutical research laboratories in over 5,000 scientific publications, and in several Phase I human gene transfer protocols including the first immunogene therapy clinical trial in the United States to achieve objective cancer regression (Dr. Steven Rosenberg, NCI). Dr. Hawley has been a member of numerous journal editorial boards (including, among others, Blood, Stem Cells, Current Gene Therapy), serving as the Editor-in-Chief of Current Gene Therapy and as a Senior Editor of Stem Cells. He is currently an Associate Editor of Current Gene Therapy, and a member of the editorial boards of Advances in Hematology, The Open Gene Therapy Journal, Journal of Stem Cell Research & Therapy, and World Journal of Stem Cells. Dr. Hawley has received a number of awards and honors throughout his career including the 2004 Carleton and Sigrid Stewart Plenary Speaker Award from the Great Lakes International Imaging and Flow Cytometry Association, and GW’s 2006 Elaine H. Snyder Cancer Research Award.
