Norman A. Doggett
Norman A. Doggett received his B.A. degree in chemistry from North Carolina State University, NC, USA, in 1980, and a Ph.D. degree in experimental pathology from the University of North Carolina, NC, USA, in 1986, where he received an NIH Predoctoral Training Fellowship. He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with Dr. Charles R. Cantor at the Department of Genetics and Development at Columbia University from 1986 to 1989, and during this time, he was awarded postdoctoral fellowships from the NCI and the Hereditary Disease Foundation. In 1989, he joined the Center for Human Genome Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a staff scientist to work on the mapping and sequencing of human chromosome 16 and served as the Deputy Center Leader of the Center for Human Genome Studies from 1997 to 2002. He has contributed toward the positional cloning of several disease genes on chromosome 16 and has published over 80 papers related to human genomics and genetics. Dr. Doggett served as the HUGO Editor for Human Chromosome 16, has been the Chairman of the Human Gene Mapping Committee of HUGO, was a Member of the Genome Data Base Quarterly Review Committee, and has organized numerous conferences and workshops focusing on the human genome, genome mapping, sequencing and analysis, and human chromosome 16. After completion of the chromosome 16 sequence, Dr. Doggett has worked on bacterial/viral forensics and the development of genetic-based bioassays in support of several programs supported by the Department of Homeland Security.
