Dr. Bogue’s academic career at Yale also included establishing and directing an NIH-funded research program in the developmental biology of the lung, liver and cardiovascular system for over 20 years. During that time, his laboratory made important contributions to the genetic pathways involved in embryonic organ development, including the identification of genetic pathways critical to formation of the liver and biliary system as well as the cardiovascular system.
