Mark Jaroszeski


Mark J. Jaroszeski, Ph.D., is Professor of Medical Engineering at the University of South Florida College of Engineering. Jaroszeski is a leading innovator in developing DNA/drug delivery technologies and methods to treat disease. He was one of the early pioneers performing in vivo electroporation during the early 1990's, and was among the first researchers to develop basic electrodes and pulsing protocols to deliver chemotherapeutic agents to tumors in animal models in vivo, safely and effectively, with very strong anti-tumor effects. His work on the frontiers of DNA/drug delivery over the past 20 years laid the foundation for more than 100 current clinical trials using gene delivery. He holds 34 U.S. patents, 12 of which have been licensed to 7 companies. He is also currently Vice President of Research for EF Therapeutics, Inc., a start-up company focused on DNA delivery and translating it to the human and veterinary clinical markets. He has published 62 articles in peer-reviewed journals, two books and 11 book chapters, and presented at more than 114 conferences worldwide. He serves as a manuscript reviewer for 21 journals, as well as frequent reviewer for the National Institutes of Health. He has organized/chaired seven professional conferences, and is a delegate to the International Bioelectrics Consortium, a collection of research groups from about 15 countries.
