Danilo Tagle's Biography

Danilo Tagle, Associate Director For Special Initiatives, Office of the Director, National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences at the NIH (NCATS)

Dan Tagle is associate director for special initiatives at NCATS. He also recently served as acting deputy director of NCATS and has served as acting director of the NCATS Office of Grants Management and Scientific Review and as executive secretary to the NCATS Advisory Council and Cures Acceleration Network Review Board. Prior to joining NCATS, Tagle was a program director for neurogenetics at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), where he was involved in developing programs concerning genomics-based approaches for basic and translational research in inherited brain disorders.

Prior to joining NINDS in 2001, Tagle was an investigator and section head of molecular neurogenetics at the National Human Genome Research Institute and has been involved in the highly collaborative effort toward the positional cloning of genes for Huntington’s disease, ataxia-telangiectasia and Niemann-Pick disease type C. He has served on numerous committees and advisory boards, including the editorial boards of the journals Gene and the International Journal of Biotechnology.

Tagle obtained his Ph.D. in molecular biology and genetics from Wayne State University School of Medicine in 1990. He was an NIH National Research Service Award postdoctoral fellow in human genetics in the laboratory of Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., at the University of Michigan. Tagle has authored more than 150 scientific publications and has garnered numerous awards and patents.

NCATS has partnered with the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory (ISS-National Lab) formerly known as the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), to collaborate on deployment of tissue chip technology for biomedical research use on the space station). Translational research at the ISS National Lab provides unprecedented opportunities to study the effects of a microgravity environment on the human body. Symptoms of accelerated aging, such as muscle deterioration, osteoporosis, reduced cardiopulmonary function and immune deficiency, occur after prolonged exposure to microgravity. It also has been observed that these conditions are reversible when astronauts return to Earth. Tissue chip projects at the ISS National Lab that model various health concerns under microgravity will contribute to our understanding of human physiological changes associated with aging and could reveal novel molecular targets that can be translated towards improving human health on earth.
