Investigators in the Division of Medical Genetics and Genomic Medicine are involved in both basic and clinical research in a variety of genetic conditions. 

Please see below to learn more about our investigators and their research efforts.

John A. Phillips, III, M.D.
Dr. Phillips' research interests include familial defects of the GH synthetic pathway, the genetic causes of Hereditable Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (HPAH), and identifying genetic defects that cause Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF).  Learn more about Dr. Phillips' research.

Rizwan Hamid, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Hamid's active areas of research are the role of genetic factors in the pathogenesis of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and the identification of genes that play a role in hematopoietic stem cell function and thus impact leukemia biology.  Learn more about Dr. Hamid's research.

Joy D. Cogan, Ph.D.
Dr. Cogan’s research lab is primarily interested in the genetics of pulmonary fibrosis. Using a combination of genome sequencing and telomere length analysis our goal is to identify additional genes responsible for heritable IPF and sporadic IPF. Learn more about Dr. Cogan's research.
