Meet the Author

Golder N. Wilson, MD, PhD has spent 27 years in academic medicine, conducting NIH-sponsored laboratory research and being elected to the Society for Pediatric Research. Over the past decade, Dr. Wilson's interests have concerned clinical care and education, with particular focus on parent education and preventive management regarding children with mental disability and birth defect syndromes. He has produced a pioneering book with the developmental pediatrician Carl Cooley, M.D.: Preventive Management for Children with Birth Defects and Syndromes, published by Cambridge University Press. Dr. Wilson's focus is to interpret patterns of anomalies/genetic disorders pre- and post-natally, and to complement diagnosis with educational information and management checklists that optimize medical care for children with special health care needs.
