Dr. Kirkland Wilson completed his medical school training at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH where he obtained both his MD and his PhD in a dual degree program. His PhD, in Nutritional Biochemistry, was obtained under the tutelage of Dr. Henri Brunengraber and he completed a dissertation which worked to expand the metabolic landscape of disorders of Propionyl-CoA metabolism using a variety of metabolomic methodologies. His clinical and research interests include the treatment and management of patients with inborn errors of metabolism, as well as the study of metabolic regulation and metabolic flux using biochemical, isotopic, and metabolomic techniques. In addition to prior publications, he most recently co-wrote a book chapter titled "Neurometabolic Disorders" for the upcoming 4th edition of Capute and Accardo's Neurodevelopmental Disabilities in Infancy and Childhood. Currently he is completing a dual Pediatrics and Medical Genetics residency at the combined programs of Children's National Hospital, in Washington, DC, and the NIH at the National Human Genome Research Institute, in Bethesda, MD. He also has the distinct pleasure to serve as the Trainee Member on the Board of Directors to the Society of Inherited Metabolic Disorders.
