Remarks / more information:

Goldstein , DavidDr. David Goldstein is Professor of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology, Professor of Biology and Director of the Center for Human Genome Variation at Duke University. He received his Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Stanford University in 1994, and from 1999-2005 was Wolfson Professor of Genetics at University College London. In April 2007, he was appointed Honorary Professor, Institute of Neurology, University College London, UK.

Dr. Goldstein is the author of over 200 scholarly publications in the areas of population and medical genetics. His principal interests include human genetic diversity, the genetics of disease, and pharmacogenetics. He was elected a fellow of AAAS in 2013 and was a recipient of one of the first seven nationally awarded Royal Society / Wolfson research merit awards in the UK for his work in human population genetics. Also in 2013, Dr. Goldstein chaired the Gordon Research Conference in Human Genetics, and he is currently serving on the Advisory Council at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at NIH.

Dr. Goldstein's primary research interests include human genetic diversity, the genetics of disease, and pharmacogenetics. The Goldstein group and collaborators have discovered a number of disease causing genes and syndromes, in particular in neurological and infectious diseases.
