PharmGKB welcomes Ugur Hodoglugil to the team
We are pleased to welcome scientific curator Ugur Hodoglugil to the PharmGKB team. Previously, Ugur has worked as research scientist on identifying the genetic determinants of complex traits (lipid and other metabolic phenotypes) and population structure at Gladstone Institutes, University of California San Francisco where he analyzed genome-wide scans data for quantitative trait locus analysis in families and studied the effects of variations of several candidate genes on lipid metabolism in unrelated individuals. He performed different assays with transgenic/knockout mice and cell culture experiments to show functionality of the variants or the phenotype of gene(s) of interest. He has obtained his M.D. and Medical Pharmacology, Ph.D. degrees from Ankara, Turkey.
