On staff since September 2006

Children's Title: Chief Executive Officer

Research Center: Center for Developmental Therapeutics

"Before becoming a hospital CEO more than a decade ago, I spent about three-quarters of my time in the laboratory trying to find ways to save the lives of premature babies with lung disease. Today, I spend one day a week at Seattle Children’s Research Institute developing low-cost ways to help infants around the world deal with respiratory problems that accompany premature birth. Why my continued interest in medical research? I think it’s the key to eliminating all childhood diseases. I know that sounds grandiose, but I truly believe that research breakthroughs in our lifetimes will allow us to see the end of childhood diseases like cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and sickle cell anemia — just like our parents or grandparents saw an end to the polio epidemics of their generation."
