Dr. Alan D. Rogol was born in New Haven, CT and completed his primary and secondary schooling in that area. He received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry at MIT and then matriculated to Duke University where he obtained a doctoral degree in Physiology and an MD, both in 1970. Following an internship and residency in pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, he did a fellowship in endocrinology at the National Institutes of Health (Clinical Endocrinology Branch).
His first faculty position was as an Assistant Professor at the University of Virginia. Over the next 25 years he became Professor of Pediatrics and Pharmacology at the University of Virginia as well as Chief of the Division of Endocrinology (Pediatrics). In 1999 he became the Chief Scientific Officer for Insmed, Inc in Richmond Virginia and a part time faculty member of both the University of Virginia and the Medical College of Virginia. He also started a consulting company, ODR Consulting, working mainly with large pharmaceutical companies of the design and safety of clinical trials. In 2008, he joined the part-time (teaching) faculty at the James Whitcomb Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, IN.
He has published more than 250 peer reviewed reports on many subjects in pediatric endocrinology, especially those relating to growth and adolescent development. His interest in the Endocrinology of Sport led to a book on that subject commissioned by the International Olympic committee and he serves as an advisor to the United States Anti-doping Association concerning athletes using endocrine-relate substances to attempt to increase athletic performance.
For the past 6 years Dr. Rogol has been the Secretary of the Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society, the largest pediatric endocrine society in North America and in June, 2010 will assume the vice-presidency of the Endocrine Society.
