What I do

As director of the Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI), I aim to create a framework that fosters open collaboration between scientists locally, domestically, and internationally, where each group brings something unique but highly complementary to the problem. At the onset of the current pandemic, I built on these relationships and created the QBI Coronavirus Research Group (QCRG) where we combine our strengths to aide in finding a treatment for COVID-19. The group’s studies have benefitted from my lab’s work, where we develop experimental and computational tools that can be applied to many biological and biomedical problems. These tools allow for effective connections between discovery research and the clinical world, enabling novel therapies for diseases.

Professional background


Dr. Krogan was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Regina and his PhD from the University of Toronto. Dr. Krogan’s lab at UCSF focuses on developing and applying quantitative, systematic proteomic and genetic approaches to study complex biological and biomedical problems. At present time, the Krogan group is focused on studying cancer, infectious disease and psychiatric disorders.
