Biography

Dr. Jonathan Bogan is a physician-scientist whose research focuses on understanding mechanisms that regulate glucose uptake and metabolism in fat and muscle. He received a B.S. in electrical engineering from Yale College and an M.D. from Harvard Medical School in the Harvard-M.I.T. Division of Health Sciences and Technology. His thesis work in genetics was done with Dr. David Page at the Whitehead Institute/M.I.T., where he contributed to mapping the human Y chromosome. Dr. Bogan did his residency in Internal Medicine and fellowship in Endocrinology at Massachusetts General Hospital. During his fellowship and subsequently as a faculty member at Harvard, he worked with Dr. Harvey Lodish at the Whitehead Institute, and conceptualized and carried out a genetic screen to study insulin action. This work led to several subsequent studies to elucidate a new mechanism by which fat and muscle cells regulate metabolism. Dr. Bogan joined the Yale faculty in 2002 and he is currently a tenured Associate Professor of Medicine. Dr. Bogan also holds appointments in the Department of Cell Biology and in the Yale Center for Molecular and Systems Metabolism, and he directs the Cell Biology Core of the Yale Diabetes Research Center. Dr. Bogan has been the recipient of numerous awards, including a NIH Physician-Scientist Award, an American Diabetes Association Career Development Award, and a Smith Family Foundation Award for Excellence in Biomedical Research. He was named a W.M. Keck Foundation Distinguished Young Scholar in Medical Research. Dr. Bogan has been elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation and Interurban Clinical Club. He has served widely on review panels for the NIH and American Diabetes Association. Dr. Bogan also serves as an Attending Physician at Yale-New Haven Hospital, as co-Director of the Energy and Metabolism Master Course in the M.D. curriculum, and as Assistant Director for Education in the Yale M.D.-Ph.D. Program.
