Associate Professor Ben Hogan completed his Honours year in Genetics in 2000 and PhD in 2004 at the University of Melbourne. During his PhD studies and as a Cancer Council postdoctoral fellow, Associate Professor Hogan studied the development of the early haematopoietic lineages in the embryo. In 2006, he moved to the Hubrecht Institute in the Netherlands and applied large-scale zebrafish forward genetic screening to study vascular development. In the first vertebrate mutagenesis screen for lymphatic vascular deficient mutants, several new molecular regulators of lymphatic development were identified, including Ccbe1, later found to be responsible for lymphatic dysplasia and lymphoedema in Hennekam syndrome patients.
