Amber Hogart Begtrup received her PhD in genetics with a focus in human genetics from the University of California, Davis in 2003. During her PhD she conducted research to identify underlying molecular etiologies of autism through molecular genetic investigation of human chromosome 15q11-13. In 2003, Dr. Begtrup transitioned to the National Institutes of Health, where she simultaneously performed post-doctoral research in the realm of epigenomics and hematopoietic development and trained in clinical molecular genetics.

While at the NIH, Dr. Begtrup was funded through the Pharmacology Research Associate Training Program sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. During her training, Dr. Begtrup developed interests in bone marrow failure disorders as well as the application of next generation sequencing technologies to clinical genetics.
