About Michael

Michael M. Weil is a professor in the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences at Colorado State University (CSU). His research, which takes advantage of murine models of radiation carcinogenesis and leukemogenesis, is focused on understanding how radiation exposure can lead to cancer and why some individuals may be more susceptible than others. At CSU, Dr. Weil teaches a graduate level course in cancer genetics and lectures in courses on cancer biology, principles of radiation biology, and the pathobiology of laboratory animals. Dr. Weil earned his PhD in microbiology from the University of Texas at Austin and was trained in cancer genetics and radiation biology in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Department of Experimental Radiotherapy at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. He is an elected council member of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement and served as the Director of the NASA Specialized Center for Research on Carcinogenesis.
