Simon Hogan, PhD

ASKWITH RESEARCH PROFESSOR OF FOOD ALLERGY AND PROFESSOR OF PATHOLOGY

Biography

Dr. Hogan completed his doctoral research training at the Australian National University, Australia focusing on cytokine regulation of allergic inflammation in the respiratory tract. Following receipt of a NHMRC CJ Martin Traveling Fellowship, he undertook his post-doctoral fellowship training at the Cincinnati Children’s with Professor Marc Rothenberg MD PhD studying the role of eosinophils in eosinophil-associated gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs). Dr. Hogan joined the faculty at Cincinnati Children’s in 2004 where he developed a NIH-funded research program focused on delineating interactions at the immune- gastrointestinal epithelial interface under homeostasis and disease. Dr. Hogan moved to University of Michigan and became the Askwith Research Professor of Food Allergy, Research Professor of Mary H Weiser Food Allergy Center Professor of Pathology, Michigan Medicine, University of Michigan in 2018. Dr. Hogan has developed a research program focused on dissecting the pathways that regulate innate and adaptive immune cell function at barrier surfaces in the context of health and disease. His research program also encompasses a significant effort to translate research findings in pre-clinical models into patient-based studies of immune-mediated diseases. Dr. Hogan is funded by NIH, CCFA and FARE and has been the recipient of Young Investigator Awards from CCFA.
