Cole Ferguson, MD, PhD – Assistant Professor, Principal Investigator
I am a physician-scientist within the Neuropathology Division of the Pathology Department at UCSD. I am broadly interested in the regulation of chromatin and epigenetics by ubiquitin signaling during brain development. I am supported by a K08 grant from NICHD entitled, "Ubiquitin signaling in epigenetic regulation of neuronal development." My clinical role is as the director of ophthalmic pathology at UCSD.
