Merrill Garnett (born 4 January 1931) is a biochemist and cancer researcher, and the founder and director of Garnett McKeen Laboratory, Inc. Holding a D.D.S. from New York University, and graduate study in chemistry and biochemistry from New York University and Brooklyn College, Dr. Garnett has had research laboratories at the Central Islip State Hospital, Waldemar Medical Research Foundation, Northport Veterans' Administration Medical Center, and the High Technology Incubator of The State University of New York at Stony Brook.

Dr. Garnett's principal laboratory discoveries reveal the presence of corollary dynamics of the genetic code by which specific DNA coded segments and cell membranes exchange ultra-low frequency sinusoidal electrical currents. According to his theory, these pulsed currents are the basis of all physiological pulses and determine the polarization, charge and folding of enzymes, nucleic acids and membrane phospholipids. The restoration of these charge transfer pathways form the basis of several new methods of medicinal management. Garnett refers to this area of research as Electrogenetics, which "describes the energy requirements, energy exchanges, and electronic circuits, which allow gene reactions to occur in the living state."[1]

Criticism[edit]

Garnett is associated with a nutritional supplement, PolyMVA, that has been used as an alternative cancer treatment.[2] However, "Available scientific evidence does not support claims that Poly-MVA is effective in preventing or treating cancer." [3]

Selected abstracts and papers[edit]

Non-technical publications[edit]

Garnett wrote a memoir entitled First Pulse: A Personal Journey in Cancer Research,[4] edited by Bill Jones, intended for the non-specialist and non-scientist. It is illustrated with paintings by his daughter, New York-based artist Joy Garnett.
