More about Dr. King
Dr. King's research focuses on the genetic basis of congenital heart disease. Since 2005, she has divided her time between clinical service in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Critical Care at the University of California, San Francisco, and an independent research program at the Gladstone Institutes. Her experiences as a pediatric critical care physician, combined with a long history of research expertise in developmental biology and genetics, allows for a unique perspective on congenital heart disease. Dr. King’s current research at Gladstone focuses on how different genetic signals function in concert to promote normal heart and muscle development.
After receiving her MD from the Medical College of Wisconsin in 1997, Dr. King began her residency at Yale New Haven Hospital in New Haven, CT. In 2000 she began her fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care at Children’s Medical Center and in 2001, her Pediatric Scientist Development Fellowship (PSDP), both at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
