Katrina Bogan, Ph.D., received a B.S. in Biology from Providence College and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College. Her doctoral work uncovered two novel NAD+ metabolites and the genes and enzymes that produce them. She also showed that this metabolic pathway contributes to the health and longevity of eukaryotic cells. This work culminated in peer-reviewed publications in the journals Cell, PLOS Biology, PLOS One, the Journal of Biological Chemistry and BMC Chemical Biology.

Throughout her graduate and post-doctoral work, Katrina has emphasized the communicating and writing of science. As a graduate student, in addition to research publications, she authored three peer-reviewed review articles and chapters in the Elsevier Encyclopedia of Biological Chemistry and the Annual Reviews of Nutrition. She has received several merit awards and grants including a travel award to the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology annual meeting, where she earned the “Best Poster Award” and a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service post-doctoral fellowship.

Katrina is a full-time grant writer and reviewer, specializing in higher education research grants and for-profit SBIRs and STTRs. Her expertise centers around applications to the NIH, NSF, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and Health and Human Services. Katrina has also participated in numerous SBIR writing training seminars and conferences, which has further strengthened her approach to developing and writing commercialization strategies. Katrina's combination of scientific strength and exposure to business strategy has made her an invaluable consultant for academic and for-profit clients alike.
