Danny Rogers, MD | Albuquerque, New Mexico
Back to Find a Doctor Results


Dr. Danny Rogers grew up in Northern Nevada before studying applied physics at Brigham Young University. He became interested in child neurology as an M.D./Ph.D. student at the University of Rochester where he worked with Dr. Nina Schor studying a novel gene which influenced differentiation of neuroblastoma cells. He moved back to the southwest to complete his pediatrics and child neurology training at the University of New Mexico. During residency, he developed a love for the people and culture of New Mexico, and gained a greater appreciation for working with underserved populations.

His clinical interest is in neurogenetics, and his broad research goal is to develop high throughput methods to investigate the functional implications of genetic variants.

He currently serves as Residency Program Director and the Interim Division Chief of Child Neurology at the University of New Mexico. Dr. Rogers is a member of the CNS LDEI committee. He hopes to leverage these positions to improve patient care in the rural areas of New Mexico including within the Native American population.

In his free time, he likes to try new things which makes his list of personal interests long (hiking, camping, reading, cooking, woodwork, welding, board games, and sports--mountain biking, ice hockey, tennis, basketball, disc golf, ultimate Frisbee, squash, etc.), even though the time to do them is always getting shorter.
