Pritmohinder Gill, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and at Arkansas Children’s Research Institute (ACRI).
Dr. Gill received his PhD in Biological Anthropology from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale and has over 25 years of expertise studying human genetics. Dr. Gill joined ACRI in November 2012 and his research interests include the use of omic- technologies in discovering novel and sensitive biomarkers in human disease.
Under the direction of Dr. Schaefer, Dr. Gill will head the pediatric experimental therapeutics and precision medicine programs to aid in molecular profiling for patients with difficult conditions. The goal is to better target therapies for children with challenging diseases.
Dr. Gill is also interested in the role of miRNAs in the development of autism spectrum disorder (Dr. Shannon Rose) and acetaminophen drug toxicity (Dr. Laura James).
Dr. Gill’s work aims to advance the current knowledge of epigenetic involvement in diseases and understand interactions that influence genetic regulation. This will help the translation of basic discoveries to identify novel targets for drug development and better therapeutic intervention.
