Andrew Hoofnagle, MD, PhD (Laboratory Medicine)

Andrew Hoofnagle is a Professor of Laboratory Medicine at UW. His laboratory focuses on the fundamental analytical chemistry needed for clinical and pre-clinical research, with a particular specialization in the application of mass spectrometry to important biological and clinical questions. His laboratory has developed and validated assays for small molecules and proteins that have been used in small cohorts as well as in large epidemiological and intervention studies (including MESA, CRIC, ARIC, Health ABC, CHS, Strong Heart Study, AIM-HIGH, HEMO, and VITAL). The Hoofnagle Laboratory in the Department of Laboratory Medicine has developed sensitive, specific, and precise assays for 13 uremic toxins in serum, plasma, and urine that use liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.
