Assistant Professor, Biochemistry
Office: 237 Haggerty Science Center
Professor Boegeman earned his B.S. at Harvey Mudd College, M.S. at Cornell University, and his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of California at San Diego. After teaching stints at the University of Puget Sound, Harvey Mudd College, and Eckerd College, he joined the faculty at the University of Dallas in 2000.
He has been the Co-faculty Advisor for U.D. Chapter of the Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society since 2002.
Dr. Boegeman is a protein chemist whose area of specialty is the study of protein-lipid interactions.
Currently he is teaching biochemistry and general chemistry. In the past he has also taught environmental chemistry, basic ideas in chemistry, and chemistry seminar.
Dr. Boegeman's research involves the study of the metabolism and regulation of lipids and lipid metabolites through the mapping of the responsible pathways and characterization of the enzymes involved.
Of particular interest are the enzymes phospholipase D and phospholipase A2.
