Daniel Nomura, PhD, is a UC Berkeley faculty member in the metabolic biology program in the Department of Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology. He earned his PhD in molecular toxicology at University of California, Berkeley and was a postdoctoral fellow in chemical physiology at The Scripps Research Institute before returning to Berkeley as a faculty member in 2011. Research in his lab focuses on discovering and characterizing dysregulated metabolic networks in disease, and using functional proteomic and metabolomic platforms to identify enzymes that represent nodal points of control for pharmacological intervention and therapy. These dysregulated biochemical networks contribute to the pathophysiology of many complex human diseases and conditions, including cancer, pain, inflammation, neurodegenerative disease, atherosclerosis, obesity and diabetes. Among Dr. Nomura’s honors are selection as a Searle Scholar and an NIH Pathway to Independence Award.
