Tod Gulick, MD

Assistant Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
Assistant Biochemist, MGH Diabetes Unit
Building 149, CNY 8


Dr. Gulick's research program focuses on the genetic and biochemical regulation of nutrient metabolite transport between the cell cytoplasm and mitochondria, advancing the understanding of these processes as they relate to diabetes and obesity. 

Dr. Gulick discovered the role of the transcription factor PPAR-alpha in the control of mitochondrial fat metabolism.  His laboratory has identified and is studying several novel transporters whose function is essential for mitochondrial fat metabolism, and is investigating the genetic basis for unique features of mitochondrial function in muscle tissue.

Dr. Gulick completed clinical training in Internal Medicine at Barnes Hospital and Washington University in St. Louis, and post-doctoral training at Washington University and in the MGH Department of Molecular Biology. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Assistant Biochemist in the Diabetes Unit at MGH.

Dr. Gulick is the recipient of several recent academic awards, including the Capps Scholarship in Diabetes from the Harvard Medical School, the Basil O'Connor Scholarship from the March of Dimes, and an Independent Scientist Career Development Award from the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
