More About Keith Wharton, MD, PhD Ultivue
Keith is a board-certified human anatomic pathologist with diverse achievements in research, drug/diagnostic development, and clinical investigation. Leading Ultivue’s Pathology and Biomarker Analytics team, he brings expertise in investigative pathology, multiplex microscopy and imaging, and digital pathology to our customers striving to realize the promise of personalized medicine. Most recently he was Senior Medical Director of Leica Biosystems, and prior to that he led and supported R&D, toxicology, biomarker, and clinical study teams in multiple therapeutic areas at Biogen and Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research.
He earned a BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Arizona, and MD and PhD in Molecular Biology from UCLA, where he discovered the molecular basis of DNA recognition by bHLH-PAS transcription factors. Following internship and residency in Anatomic Pathology and fellowships in Autopsy Pathology and Developmental Biology at Stanford, his research lab at UT Southwestern established the Naked cuticle (Nkd) gene family as critical feedback regulators of Wnt/b-catenin signaling in development and disease.
