Michael  Milken
Michael Milken
Chairman, Milken Institute

Mike Milken, the Institute chairman, was called "The Man Who Changed Medicine" by Fortune magazine for his 35 years of accelerating progress against all life-threatening diseases. Building on work begun in the 1970s, he co-founded the Milken Family Foundation in 1982 to support medical research and education. He also heads FasterCures and helped found the Melanoma Research Alliance. His philanthropic career paralleled a financial career that helped democratize modern capital markets by expanding access to capital, creating millions of jobs. Mike is an investor in many companies that help build human capital, including enterprises operating early childhood education centers around the world. He graduated with highest distinction from the University of California, Berkeley, and earned his MBA from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. He and his wife, Lori, who celebrate their 44th anniversary this year, have three children and six grandchildren. Additional details and a selection of Mike's articles are at www.mikemilken.com.
