Jeff Reagan received his Ph.D. in chemistry from Yale University. He pursued postdoctoral studies at the Yale University School of Medicine in the Department of Neurobiology, studying the molecular pharmacology of olfaction.  Jeff joined Sandoz/Novartis to work on G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) pharmacology. After joining Affymax, he extended his work on the molecular pharmacology of GPCRs. In 2001 he joined Tularik (acquired by Amgen in 2004) and worked in diabetes, nephrology, and cardiovascular disease with a specific emphasis on systolic heart failure. His principal area of interest is applying the tools of molecular pharmacology and mathematical modeling to the treatment of heart failure and other metabolic disorders.
