Mark Boguski is Senior Vice President for Research and Development at Rosetta Inpharmatics, Inc. He received his BA in natural sciences from Johns Hopkins University and his MD and PhD in molecular biology from the University of Washington. He was a resident in anatomic pathology at Barnes, Children's and Jewish Hospitals and a medical staff fellow at the Mathematical Research Branch of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at the National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Boguski spent 11 years at the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the National Library of Medicine, rising from Senior Staff Fellow to Senior Investigator. Early in his career, he studied the organization and biological importance of repeated sequences in nucleic acids and proteins. He developed analytic methods to trace the molecular evolution of proteins from related species. At NCBI, he was instrumental in the design and implementation of a database system for representing expressed sequence tags. More recently, he led the development of several prototype database systems for storing and analyzing microarray-derived gene expression data.

Dr. Boguski has served as Editor of Genomics and is a member of the Board of Reviewing Editors of Science. He is recipient of the Regents Award of the NLM and the NIH Director's Award.
