Scott Boegeman, Ph.D.

Professor Boegeman earned his B.S. from Harvey Mudd College, M.S. from Cornell University and his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of California at San Diego. Dr. Boegeman taught at the University of Puget Sound, Harvey Mudd College and Eckerd College before joining the faculty at the University of Dallas in 2000.

He has been the co-faculty adviser for the U.D. Chapter of the Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society since 2002.

Dr. Boegeman is a protein chemist whose area of specialty is the study of protein-lipid interactions. Currently, he is teaching biochemistry and general chemistry. In the past, he has also taught environmental chemistry, basic ideas in chemistry and chemistry seminar.

Recent Courses

Biochemistry and General Chemistry

Dr. Boegeman teaches the Biochemistry and General Chemistry sequences at the University of Dallas, as well as Environmental Chemistry, Chemistry Seminar and Basic Ideas in Chemistry.

Research Interests

Protein-Lipid Interactions

Dr. Boegeman's research involves the study of the metabolism and regulation of lipids and lipid metabolites through the mapping of the responsible pathways and characterization of the enzymes involved. Of particular interest are the enzymes phospholipase D and phospholipase A2.
