Dr. Clegg earned his B.S. degree in Biochemistry at the University of California, Davis in 1977 and his Ph.D. in Biochemistry at the University of California, Berkeley in 1983. A molecular analysis of genes and proteins involved in the sensory transduction systems of bacteria constituted his doctoral thesis. As a Jane Coffin Childs Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of California, San Francisco, he studied the regulation of nerve growth factor gene expression in the brain and heart. He also began work on neuronal and muscle cell receptors for extracellular matrix factors. He has continued this avenue of research since joining the UCSB faculty in 1988. Dr. Clegg is the recipient of the UCSB Distinguished Teaching Award in the Physical Sciences, and had served on the editorial board of the Journal of Biological Chemistry. He is a member of the UCSB Neuroscience Research Institute.
