Clifford W. Bogue, MD, chair of pediatrics and chief medical officer at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital, specializes in pediatric critical care. His research interests are focused on the early development of the liver and cardiovascular system. “I want to understand how organs develop so that I might use that knowledge someday to repair damaged organs in children,” he says.
Dr. Bogue established and directed and National Institutes of Health-funded research program in the developmental biology of the lung, liver and cardiovascular system for more than 20 years. During that time, his laboratory made important contributions to the genetic pathways involved in embryonic organ development. Dr. Bogue is a professor of pediatrics (critical care) at Yale School of Medicine and the interim chief for the Gastroenterology & Hepatology Section of Yale Medicine Department of Pediatrics.
He is a member of the American Pediatric Society and in 2013 was elected secretary-treasurer to the International Pediatric Research Foundation. Dr. Bogue also serves on the editorial board of the journal Current Opinion in Pediatrics.
