Dr. Mark A. Magnuson is the Louise B. McGavock Professor of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics, Medicine, and Cell and Developmental Biology at Vanderbilt University.
Dr. Magnuson graduated from Luther College in 1975 and obtained his medical degree from the University of Iowa in 1979. He completed an internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, N.Y., followed by three years at the NIH as a Research Associate. He came to VUMC in 1985 as both a clinical fellow in Endocrinology and a senior fellow in Molecular Physiology and Biophysics before joining the faculty in 1987.
Dr. Magnuson has authored or co-authored over 180 peer-reviewed articles. He has been a member of numerous scientific review panels and has served on the editorial boards for Diabetes, Molecular Endocrinology, the Journal of Biological Chemistry and the American Journal of Physiology: Endocrinology and Metabolism. He currently chairs the Executive Committee of the Beta Cell Biology Consortium and is Associate Editor for Experimental Biology and Medicine. In 2006 he received the Sidney P. Colowick Faculty Award at Vanderbilt. His research has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health for nearly 25 years.
Dr. Magnuson is Director of the Vanderbilt Center for Stem Cell Biology, Sr. Scientific Co-Director of the Transgenic Mouse/ES Cell Shared Resource, and Scientific Advisor for the Genome Sciences Resource. Between 1998 and 2005 he served as Director of the Office of Biomedical Sciences and Assistant Vice Chancellor for Research.
