BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Gaulton joined the Pediatric Diabetes Research Center in January 2016.  He has a BAS in computer science from the University of Pennsylvania and PhD in genetics and molecular biology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Gaulton did post-doctoral training in human genetics, genomics and epigenetics at the University of Oxford and Stanford University.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

Dr. Gaulton studies how genetic risk contributes to the development of diabetes. Using computational and molecular genetics, the Gaulton lab addresses contemporary questions about human genetic variation and its effect on genome function and diabetes risk. His research will help identify novel strategies for preserving beta cells in patients at risk for type 1 diabetes.
