Peter Agre, M.D.

Home » Officers » Peter Agre, M.D.

Peter Agre, MD received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2003 for his work with aquaporins, a family of water channel proteins found throughout nature and responsible for numerous physiological processes in humans.

Dr. Agre received his BA in chemistry from Augsburg College in 1970, and his MD from Johns Hopkins in 1974. Following an Internal Medicine Residency at Case Western Reserve University Hospitals of Cleveland and a Hematology-Oncology Fellowship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Agre returned to Johns Hopkins as a postdoctoral fellow in cell biology. Dr. Agre joined the faculty in 1984 and has spent most of his professional life at Hopkins' School of Medicine, leaving in 2005 to go to become Vice Chancellor for Science and Technology at Duke University Medical Center. His return to Hopkins and JHMRI as the director of the Malaria Research Institute in 2008 gives Dr. Agre the opportunity to concentrate on an area in which he has always been interested - the problem of disease in the developing world.

Dr. Agre is married and has 4 children. He lives in Maryland.
