Assistant Professor, Medicine
George Kargul, M.D., MS, earned an undergraduate degree in mathematics at the University of Michigan. After earning a master of science in general biology at Wayne State University, he was awarded a pre-IRTA fellowship to work at the Laboratory of Genetics at the NIA/NIH. While at the NIH, his work included informatics research in genomic sequence analysis, mouse developmental genomics and the development of the largest mammalian cDNA microarray at that time.
Following his fellowship at NIA/NIH, Dr. Kargul earned a medical degree from Wayne State University and completed a residency in internal medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals. During his residency, he also served as a research proposal reviewer for The Implementation Group, a Washington, DC-based consulting firm which helps researchers and organizations acquire federal funding.
Dr. Kargul joined the CIMS faculty following his residency. His current academic interests include genomics, informatics and hospital medicine. He is a member of the American Medical Association, the Pennsylvania Medical Society, the American Psychiatric Association, the Wayne State University Alumni Association and the Society of Physics Students. He also was awarded a lifelong membership in the mathematics honor society, Pi Mu Epsilon.
