Fasil Tekola-Ayele, Ph.D., is an Earl Stadtman Investigator (tenure-track) in the Epidemiology Branch of the Division of Intramural Population Health Research at NICHD, within NIH. He received his Ph.D. in genetic-epidemiology from the Brighton and Sussex Medical School, Universities of Brighton and Sussex, U.K., and did postdoctoral fellowship in the National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH. Dr. Tekola-Ayele's current research seeks to understand genetic influences and their interactions with old and present-day environmental factors in growth and consequent cardiometabolic diseases/disparities in diverse ancestral populations.
