Chris Hogue received his PhD jointly from the University of Ottawa and the NRC-CNRC-IBS, Canada, after which he went on to work as a post docotoral fellow at the NIH National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). He continued in the field of bioinformatics at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital and in 1997 joined the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Toronto where he became an Assistant and then Associate Professor. During this time he received awards from the Canada Foundation for Innovation Researcher and Sun Microsystems Center of Excellence in Systems Biology. He also launched the free software program TraDES for use in sampling protein conformational space.
In 2004, Chris was recruited to the National University Singapore (NUS) and in 2007 was made Associate Professor at the Department of Biological Sciences and the Mechanobiology Institute, Singapore. His research efforts continue explore molecular mechanobiology using a systems approach. In addition, Chris serves as technical editor of MBInfo.
