Dr Judy A Mikovits, PhD (Molecular Biology; Biochemistry) - Researcher; Author; Advocate for Health Education and Freedom. Webpage: http://plaguethebook.com/.
Dr. Mikovits earned her BA in Chemistry with a specialization in biology from the University of Virginia in 1980 and her PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology from George Washington University in 1992. Upon graduation from the University of Virginia, 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 insure biological materials manufactured using human blood products were free of contamination from HIV-1. Her PhD thesis defense titled "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 2001, Dr. Mikovits moved back to industry where she developed multiplex diagnostic epigenetic and proteomics expression technologies for the prevention and treatment of Cancer and prediction of Immune Related Adverse Events to chemotherapy/immune therapy in susceptible populations.
In 2006, she became attracted to the plight of families with neuroimmune diseases including myalgic encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Dr. Mikovits co-founded and developed the first neuroimmune translational research institute dedicated to understanding the pathophysiology and treatment of Neuroimmune diseases [ME/CFS, ASD, Parkinson's Disease (PD), Neuroborreliosis/Chronic Lyme Disease (CLD), Alzheimer's Disease (AD), Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) among others]. In five short years, Dr. Mikovits won more than 6 million dollars of NIH/DOD competitive funding in grants and contracts for this program demonstrating the relationship between environmentally acquired immune dysfunction, chronic inflammation and these diseases.
Her pioneering work during her twenty-year career at the National Cancer Institute includes the discovery of the modulation of DNA methylation machinery by human retroviral infection and the
development of the concept of inflammatory cytokines and chemokine signatures of infection and disease, which was first published in 1999, when she directed the Laboratory of Antiviral Drug Mechanisms in developing therapeutics and diagnostics for HIV/AIDS and AIDS associated malignancies. These are therapies that are still standard of care twenty-five years later and credited with saving millions of deaths from HIV/AIDS.
In her thirty-five-year quest to understand and treat 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. In addition to more than 50 peer reviewed publications and book chapters, Dr. Mikovits holds patent # WO 2012061790 A1. "Combination Therapy for Prostate Cancer using Botanical Compositions and Bicalutamide" and authored the book, Plague.
The formation of M.A.R.C. Inc. in 2016 with colleague, Dr. Frank Ruscetti, has afforded Dr. Mikovits the opportunity to come full-circle back to her first love, natural products chemistry. M.A.R.C. Inc. is a consulting company focused on education for prevention and treatment autoimmune/auto-inflammatory diseases resulting from drugs and environmental toxins. Her heart and passion is to focus on natural products chemistry and plant based drug therapies. Her current focus is on medical cannabis with breakthroughs in understanding of the pathophysiology of neuroimmune diseases as acquired endocannabinoid immune dysfunction (AEIDS).

Diane Douglas - Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction 2015-2018
Diane Douglas - Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction 2015-2018
Diane Douglas has always been passionate about the American education system and has been actively involved in Arizona's education landscape for over twenty five years. Her interest started with her daughter's education and has continued with her grandson. Advocating and protecting parents' rights to direct the education of their children has been one of her highest priorities throughout her years of service.
As the leader of the Arizona Department of Education, former Superintendent Douglas was devoted to improving education in Arizona so that all Arizona's children have the opportunity to reach their goals in life and contribute as successful American citizens. She believes the only way to accomplish this goal is to return education to its original purpose - the acquisition of knowledge through a classical education. To this end she attempted during her tenure to bring the Hillsdale Barney Charter School standards to all the schools in Arizona.
Former Superintendent Douglas is proud to have served two terms on the Peoria Unified School District Governing Board, including two years as President of the Board. During her tenure she worked to advocate for the district's parents and taxpayers in delivering an excellent education to all of its students and oversight of taxpayers' dollars. She has also served on the Site Councils for two Peoria Unified schools and on the Board of Education for church education programs.
Prior to her advocacy and leadership in education issues, Superintendent Douglas graduated from Rutgers University and had a distinguished career as a financial expert for a variety of private sector firms.
