Rogers, Maximillian A.

Max Rogers obtained his Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology from the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth in the lab of Professor Ta Yuan Chang. The title of his thesis was “Cholesterol Metabolism and Human Diseases” from which he published several peer reviewed publications. Part of Max’s thesis work was the subject of a Nature Science-Business eXchange cover story, and was reviewed in a Chemical and Engineering News article.

Max is an inventor on a U.S. patent for a novel treatment of a fatal pediatric neurodegenerative disease. A full list of his peer reviewed publications can be seen here.

Following graduation Max held a faculty research fellow appointment, along with an NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award in the Dartmouth Endocrinology and Metabolism Group. Now working as a research fellow at the CICS, Max is looking to identify novel targets in the treatment of calcific aortic valve disease in the research group of Dr. Elena Aikawa.
