    Biography
      Jeffrey A. Borgia, PhD. is a graduate of the Biochemistry Graduate program at the University of Minnesota where he trained with Dr. Theodore R. Oegema, Jr. on proteoglycan biosynthesis. Borgia then completed postdoctoral studies with Dr. Gregg B. Fields where he explored the production of matrix metalloproteinases by melanoma cells when adhered to synthetic 'mini-collagens' as well as tumor cell aggressiveness. In 2002, Borgia joined the faculty at Rush in the Department of Biochemistry where he continued some of his work on proteoglycan biochemistry, but later elected to focus on cancer biology and the development of novel diagnostic tests with Dr. John S. Coon IV in the Department of Pathology. He is currently continuing these studies with appointments in both the Department of Cell & Molecular Medicine as well as the Department of Pathology.
