About Dr. Hudson H. Freeze
Dr. Freeze has earned nearly 40 years of continuous NIH funding in Glycobiology, beginning with his postdoctoral work. In the last 20 years he focused on the identification and understanding of human genetic disorders, the Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG), which now number over 100. He collaborates closely with physicians, families and their support organizations and regularly consults on cases while still tracking the genetic basis of multiple patients with unknown glycosylation defects.
Prior to his 27 years at the Institute, Dr. Freeze was a member of the UCSD School of Medicine faculty, and continues there as an Adjunct Professor. He isolated the first extreme thermophile, Thermus aquaticus (Taq), for which he won the 2013 Golden Goose Award.
