Michael J. Joyner
Professor, The Human and Integrative Physiology and Clinical Pharmacology laboratories, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, USA

Michael J. Joyner, M.D., is the Caywood Professor of Anesthesiology at Mayo Clinic where he was named Distinguished Investigator in 2010. His research focuses on exercise physiology, human performance, blood pressure regulation, metabolism, and transfusion practices.  He is also interested in the limits of scientific reductionism and the de-hyping of biomedical communications.  The latter interest has led to a number of thought provoking and critical essays on the so-called Precision Medicine narrative in the popular press and key scientific journals.  Professor Joyner attended the University of Arizona where he graduated with a B.S. in 1981 and an M.D. in 1987.  After leaving Arizona he completed his residency training in anesthesiology at the Mayo Clinic in 1993 and then developed an independent research laboratory that has been funded by NIH since that time.
