Conrad Messam, Ph.D.


Dr. Messam is a Principal Scientist in the Oncology Department at Merck Pharmaceuticals. He received his undergraduate degree at Boston University and graduated with his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Messam and his wife (Dr. June Elcock-Messam) are the original incorporators of ECC. Even prior to their marriage, they worked collaboratively on projects to improve the lives of children at risk.

Starting ECC together was a natural next step to organize their work in order to reach and have a positive impact on more children. Dr. Messam brings his strength, his attention to detail, his vast knowledge, and his experience starting successful organizations to ECC.

He lives with his wife and their four children in Delaware County. He can often be seen exercising with his trusty sidekick (and man’s best friend) Domino.
