Dr. Voglmaier obtained her BA, MD, and PhD from Johns Hopkins, where she worked with Dr. Solomon Snyder. Dr. Voglmaier has received numerous awards and grants, including a Whitehall Foundation Research Grant, a NARSAD Young Investigator Award, and the Sandler Program for Breakthrough Biomedical Research Opportunity Award.
One of the first UCSP RRTP residents, Dr. Voglmaier chose to work with Dr. Robert Edwards in the Department of Neurology at UCSF, and continued there after her residency as a Howard Hughes Postdoctoral Fellow while also a clinical fellow in the Department of Psychiatry. She went on to obtain a K08 mentored career award from the NIMH, entitled “Regulation of Vesicular Glutamate Transport.”
We are fortunate to have been able to recruit Dr. Voglmaier onto the faculty of the UCSF Department of Psychiatry, where she is a Staglin Family/IMHRO Assistant Professor.
Dr. Voglmaier’s research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of neurotransmitter release and synaptic vesicle recycling. She has an active basic science research laboratory, and spends a portion of her time teaching residents, including RRTP residents, medical students, and graduate students at UCSF. She will act as a career mentor for individuals who are primarily interested in pursuing basic science research. Dr. Voglmaier provides a unique perspective on successfully integrating basic science research with clinical activities in psychiatry, as well as personal experience as a research resident in the RRTP.
Dr. Voglmaier has published 14 peer-reviewed papers and 3 book chapters or other publications.
