Kimberly McAllister, Ph.D., received a B.S. in honors biology at the University of Illinois and a Ph.D. in human genetics at the University of Michigan. Her Ph.D. dissertation involved identifying the first gene known to cause the disease Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia. She completed postdoctoral training and a research fellowship in the Division of Intramural Research at NIEHS with research focusing on the development of BRCA2-deficient mice as a model for breast cancer and Fanconi Anemia.

 

McAllister is presently a program administrator in the extramural division of NIEHS in the Susceptibility and Population Health Branch. She manages a portfolio of grants in genetic epidemiology and gene-environment interaction studies, human genetics, GxE statistical and bioinformatics methods, basic genetics, DNA repair, animal models of human disease, and comparative biology approaches. She represents NIEHS on multiple trans-NIH committees relating to genetics and genomics including the GEI and Roadmap Epigenomics programs.
