Assistant Professor, Biodesign Center for Immunotherapy, Vaccines and Virotherapy
Dr. Ian Hogue is an Assistant Professor in the Biodesign Center for Immunotherapy, Vaccines and Virotherapy and the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University.
He earned a B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley, where he performed undergraduate research on baculoviruses and worked as a laboratory technician studying alphavirus vaccine vectors at Chiron Corporation. He worked as a laboratory technician at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center studying HIV-1 latency. He then earned his Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Michigan, studying HIV-1 assembly. Dr. Hogue then completed postdoctoral training at Princeton University, studying alpha herpesvirus egress and spread.
Dr. Hogue’s research focuses on neurovirology, the molecular and cell biology of viruses in the nervous system. Specifically, Dr. Hogue’s laboratory uses specialized live-cell fluorescence microscopy methods, cryo electron microscopy structural biology methods, and primary neuron cell culture methods to study how alpha herpesviruses interact with the molecular and cell biology of neurons.
