Biography

Michael R. McDevitt is a research scientist in the Departments of Medicine and Radiology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He specializes in the development and clinical translation of targeted radiolabeled drug constructs to treat cancer and other diseases. Radioconstructs are drugs that combine antibodies and radionuclides for therapeutic and imaging applications in the treatment of cancer. His research involves the investigation of new chemistry, radiochemistry, biological activity, pharmacokinetics, safety, stability and the translation of new constructs into the clinic. He has also been investigating novel nanomaterial-based constructs and incorporating these materials into drug design strategies. After receiving his PhD degree from Case Western Reserve University, in 1985, Dr. McDevitt worked in biotechnology and joined MSKCC in 1995. In 2004, he received a master’s degree in engineering from The City University of New York. He is also a member of MSKCC’s Brain Tumor Center and Nanotechnology Center.
