Atum Buo was raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland. He received his BS in Chemistry from Haverford College in 2007 and completed his Ph.D training in Molecular Medicine from the University of Maryland, Baltimore in 2017.
Atum recently started a postdoctoral fellowship as part of the Center for Public Health Genomics at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. While he still specializes in bone research, his current work is more in the realm of systems genetics and focuses on the impact of genomic variation on bone strength and fracture risk. Atum hopes that his research will lead to the discovery of new genes that play a role in bone strength and ultimately contribute to the development of therapies against bone diseases such as osteoporosis.
