|Christopher Hogue, Ph.D.
Christopher Hogue brings a diverse research background to his role as
Senior Scientist at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute of Mt. Sinai
Hospital, Toronto, Ontario. Hogue earned his Bachelor of Science degree
from the University of Windsor and his Doctor of Philosophy from the
University of Ottawa, both located in Ontario, Canada. Chris worked as
a postdoctoral researcher at the U.S. National Institutes of Health in
the National Centre for Biotechnology Information where the sequence
database "GenBank" is maintained and distributed. At NCBI Chris helped
develop a new 3-Dimensional structure database and wrote a widely used
program for visualizing biological molecules called "See-in 3-D".
Chris's research team developed the Biomolecular Interaction Network
Database and also study protein folding using Beowulf clusters and
distributed computing. He is an Assistant Professor of biochemistry at
the University of Toronto, where he teaches in various bioinformatics
courses as well as courses in proteomics and protein structure and
function. Chris is also one of the founders of the Candadian
Bioinformatics Workshop series (www.bioinformatics.ca) and is engaged in
the training of hundreds of new bioinformatics professionals. Well
known and well respected in the biochemistry field, Hogue has authored
and co-authored over 30 papers, and several book chapters on both
biochemistry and bioinformatics. He has also given over 50 presentations
and holds six patents in the biomolecular field. Furthermore, Hogue has
received several major grants for his research, including a NCBI Genbank
Fellowship, and was named a Canada Foundation For Innovation Researcher,
while at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute.
