Biography
Hopkins received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from UCLA in 1997 (Magna cum laude) followed by a Master of Science in Public Health in 1978 also from UCLA. His medical training was at the University of Utah School of Medicine and the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester Minnesota. He is board certified in Public Health and Preventive Medicine as well as Clinical Lipidology.Dr. Hopkins has been involved in efforts to promote greater understanding and prevention of premature, familial coronary artery disease (CAD) with the Cardiovascular Genetics (CVG) group since 1978. He has been a Principal Investigator (PI) or Co-Investigator for numerous NIH grants focused on the genetics of CAD, hypertension, lipids, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. Dr. Hopkins is currently Co-Director of Cardiovascular Genetics at the University of Utah and Director of the Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Clinic, a referral clinic for severe genetic lipid disorders, hypertriglyceridemia, familial combined hyperlipidemia, metabolic syndrome and diabetes, and familial hypercholesterolemia (FH).

He has done extensive research among patients with FH and has been the PI for the Utah branch of several NIH studies including GOLDN (a study of pharmacogenetics of fenofibrate and effects on triglyceride metabolism), and the ongoing Genetics of Human Hypertension study (a collaboration with Harvard Medical School since 1986). He continues to have an intense interest in atherosclerosis disease prevention, familial lipid disorders, metabolic syndrome, and pathogenesis of diabetes and hypertension. He has served as a local PI for over 30 industry-funded clinical trials of various lipid interventions.

From 1998 to 2004 Dr. Hopkins was International Chair for the MEDPED program (Make Early Diagnoses to Prevent Early Death), started by the late Dr. Roger Williams to find, educate, and help prevent premature CAD in persons with FH. Dr. Hopkins served as an NIH grant reviewer and continues to be a reviewer for numerous medical journals. He teaches at the University of Utah School of Medicine, is an active lecturer, and serves as a statistical consultant for the Center for Clinical and Translational Studies statistics group at the University of Utah.
