About Steve Gonias

Dr. Gonias received his BS in Biochemistry from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He received his MD and PhD degrees from Duke University. Dr. Gonias’ graduate work focused on protease inhibitor structure and function. Dr. Gonias completed residency training in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and research fellowship training in vascular biology at Duke prior to accepting a faculty position in the Departments of Pathology and Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at the University of Virginia. As a faculty member at UVA for seventeen years, Dr. Gonias supervised an active research laboratory focusing on the function of proteases in cancer progression and vascular biology. In 2004, Dr. Gonias moved to UC San Diego as Chair of Department of Pathology. He maintains an active research laboratory. His work is funded by the NCI, NHLBI, and NINDS. Dr. Gonias’ past trainees hold tenured and tenure-track faculty positions at UVA, Vanderbilt, the University of New Mexico, the University of Guelph, and elsewhere.

The Gonias Lab

Our research laboratory group includes project scientists, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, and research associates. These researchers apply diverse and advanced approaches to address scientific problems, including transgenic and other mouse model systems, mass spectrometry/proteomics, and high resolution imaging. We take full advantage of a rich and collaborative scientific community at UC San Diego. Our research laboratory is located on the first floor of the Biomedical Sciences Building (BSB) on the La Jolla campus of UC San Diego. We are in close proximity to the Burnham Institute and the Scripps Research Institute. Visitors are welcome!
