Biography

Dr. Furlong received a B.A. in Chemistry from San Jose State College in 1963 and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of California, Davis in 1968 where he studied the allosteric regulation of glycogen synthesis in bacteria. He then spent two postdoctoral years at Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y. with Dr. Leon Heppel working on bacterial ABC transporters, isolating and characterizing a number of periplasmic substrate binding proteins. In 1970, he continued this research as a faculty member in the Biochemistry Department at the University of California, Riverside. In 1976 he spent a sabbatical leave at Stanford University working with Drs. Harden McConnell and Hugh McDevitt studying immunology. In 1977, Dr. Furlong joined the UW Departments of Medicine (Division of Medical Genetics) and Genetics (now Genome Sciences) as a Research Associate Professor. He was promoted to Research Professor in 1992 and Professor in 2011.
