Jerry Vockley, MD, PhD came to UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in 2004 to lead the Division of Medical Genetics, now the Division of Genetics and Genomic Medicine. He also is a professor of pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, the Cleveland Family Endowed Professor in Pediatric Research in the med school, a professor of human genetics at the Graduate School of Public Health and a Member of the Pittsburgh Liver Research Center. Dr. Vockley directs an active research program on inherited disorders of energy and protein metabolism, focused on both understanding the genetic causes of these disorders and developing new treatments for them. His research has earned National Institutes of Health support continuously since the early 1990s. The diseases Vockley treats are all related to defective enzymes, special proteins in the body that carry out chemical reactions. We congratulate Dr. Vockley on this highly deserved recognition and honor.
