Academic Bio

Craig Teerlink, PhD, is a Research Assistant Professor in the Division of Genetic Epidemiology in the Department of Medicine. As a research track assistant professor, his research interests include gene discovery in a variety of complex diseases.

Dr. Teerlink’s research has relied heavily on the unique resources that are available at the University of Utah including genealogical and phenotype records contained in the Utah Population Database and genotype/sequence data collected over the last several decades at the Division of Genetic Epidemiology. His research has covered a range of activities contributing to gene discovery including familial aggregation, gene localization, and analysis of sequence data.

Dr. Teerlink received his PhD from the University of Utah where he received graduate training in statistics and biomedical informatics.
