Michael Santos, deputy director, supports strategy and operations for the Discovery & Translational Sciences and Strategy, Planning & Management teams in the Global Health Program. 

Prior to joining the foundation in 2103 he was a management consultant with the Boston Consulting Group for five years, working on strategic problems in the corporate, public, and non-profit sectors.  His global health projects as a consultant included vector control, HIV prevention with broadly neutralizing antibodies, combining contraception and HIV prevention, and global regulatory system strategy.

Michael’s first career was astronomy: he received a Ph.D. from Caltech in 2003 for work on how galaxies are born and subsequently held research fellowships at the University of Cambridge and the Space Telescope Science Institute.
