On this episode of HealthMade Radio, Dr. Karlfeldt interviews Dr. Judy Mikovits PhD
Dr. Judy A. Mikovits earned a BA in Chemistry with a specialization in biology from the University of Virginia in 1980 and a PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology from George Washington University in 1992.
Upon graduation from UVA, she went directly to the National Cancer Institute in Frederick Maryland where she developed purification methods for Interferon alpha. It was this Interferon which was used in the first immune therapy treatment for hairy cell leukemia in 1986. In 1986-7, prior to enrolling in graduate school, she went to Upjohn Pharmaceuticals in Kalamazoo Michigan to develop production methods to ensure biological materials manufactured using human blood products were free of contamination from HIV-1. Her PhD thesis defense entitled “Negative Regulation of HIV Expression in Monocytes” changed the paradigm for therapeutic treatment of HIV. For this work, she was awarded the graduate student of the year in 1991. In her thirty-five-year quest to understand and develop therapies for chronic diseases, she has co-authored seminal papers culminating at least a decade of research in each of four fields: immunology, natural products chemistry, epigenetics, and HIV/AIDs drug development. Her book, Plague, is about one scientist’s intrepid search for the truth about human retroviruses and chronic fatigue syndrome, autism and other diseases.
