Carol J. Bult, Ph.D. is a geneticist and bioinformatician who uses both computational and experimental approaches to understand the genomics of complex biological processes. Highlights of her research to date include the first use of high-throughput DNA sequencing for the discovery of novel human genes, sequencing and annotating the first three complete genomes of cellular organisms, the initial sequencing and analysis of the mouse genome, and the first comprehensive assessment of transcriptional diversity and dynamics in the mouse genome. Dr. Bult’s current research focus is on the connection between normal lung development and lung diseases such as cancer and pulmonary fibrosis. She is a Principal Investigator in the Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) database consortium at The Jackson Laboratory. MGI is the most comprehensive database of integrated functional genetic and genomic data for the laboratory mouse available in the public domain. Dr. Bult has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed papers and serves on numerous Advisory Boards. Her work has been highlighted in the journal, Science, as well as in Wired and Discover magazines. Dr. Bult graduated from the University of New Hampshire and completed postdoctoral fellowships at Louisiana State University and the Smithsonian Institution. She was a founding faculty member of The Institute for Genomic Research (now, The J. Craig Venter Institute) in Rockville, Maryland.

The scholarship in medicine lecture series features prominent health care providers, scientists and policy makers from Maine and New England. The series explores the stories behind what we do on a daily basis in clinic. They are intended to be relaxed and interactive, with the goal of inspiring attendees to question not just the "how" in their practice, but the "why" as well as the "why not".

The Scholarship in Medicine series is organized by Dr. Greg Feero, Maine Dartmouth’s Research Director and supported by MaineGeneral Medical Center.

All lectures are held at the Dean Education Center at MaineGeneral Medical Center's Thayer Campus in Waterville. Map
CME Credit* is available for in person attendees
