John R. Gilbert, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Genome Technology at the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics, is a molecular biologist and an expert in sequencing and gene expression, gene analysis and characterization, positional cloning, mutation analysis, and animal models of human disorders. Gilbert’s research focuses on applications of genome technology to human genetics and the molecular genetics of autism, Alzheimer disease, Essential Tremor, Neural Tube Defects, and infectious disease. He also is a professor at the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Department of Human Genetics.
