Brigid L. M. Hogan, PhD, FRS, is a distinguished British developmental biologist noted for her contributions to stem cell research and transgenic technology and techniques. She is the George Barth Geller Professor of Research in Molecular Biology and chair of the Department of Cell Biology at Duke University. She is also the President-elect of the American Society for Cell Biology, slated to assume office in 2009. Before becoming the first woman to head a basic science department at Duke, she was head of the Laboratory of Molecular Embryology at the National Institute for Medical Research in London and later the founding director of the Stem Cell and Organogenesis Program at Vanderbilt University. Her work on transgenic mice have led her to edit the first two editions of the seminal work on transgenic techniques: Manipulating the mouse embryo: a laboratory manual. In 1994, she served as the scientific co-chair of a National Institutes of Health report on human embryonic stem cell research.

Hogan has been elected a member of the US National Academy of Sciences and Institute of Medicine, and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Royal Society.
