Please join us for a research seminar on chemical genomics, led by Thomas P. Burris

Please join us for a seminar by Thomas P Burris, Ph.D. on his presentation titled, “Chemical Genomics (Part 2): Drug Discovery & Mitochondrial Dysfunction” on Monday, June 21 in Room 101 or via Zoom.

“Thomas P. Burris, Ph.D. is the Alumni Endowed Professor of Pharmacology at the Center for Clinical Pharmacology at Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis College of Pharmacy. He also serves as Vice President for Research at St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Prior to joining the Center for Clinical Pharmacology Dr.Burris was the William Beaumont, M.D. Professor of Physiology and Chair of the Department of Pharmacology & Physiology at Saint Louis University of School of Medicine.

He also served as Professor and founding director of the Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Disease at The Scripps Research Institute following a return to academia after holding drug discovery research positions at Johnson & Johnson and Eli Lilly & Company for a decade. Dr. Burris is an expert in chemical genomics of nuclear hormone receptors.

His research has focused on gene regulation by this class of transcription factors since the early 1990’s. He has expertise in targeting these receptors towards development of drugs to treat a range of human diseases including autoimmune diseases, cancer, metabolic/cardiovascular diseases, and behavioral disorders. He holds numerous patents and has published 190 manuscripts including many in prestigious journals such as Nature, Nature Medicine, Nature Immunology, Nature Structure & Molecular Biology, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Chemical Biology, Cancer Cell, Cell Metabolism, Journal of Clinical Investigation and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. He is an elected fellow of the American Heart Association and the American Association for the Advancement of Science and has been named an ISI/Clarivate Highly Cited Research twice. His research is currently funded by several NIH grants (NIMH, NIA, NCI, NHLBI & NIAMS), Department of Defense, and multiple industry grants. He is also a cofounder of 4 active biotechnology companies.”
