Carolyn Baloh and Cory Stingl
CAGPM T32 Post-Doctoral Fellows, Duke University School of Medicine Carolyn Baloh, MD is a second year allergy immunology fellow with Applied Genomics and Precision Medicine, her current research interest focuses on primary immune deficiency. Dr. Baloh poster came in first place in the post-graduate category at the 2018 NHGRI Research Training and Career Development Annual Meeting for her preliminary work. Her first article of fellowship title: "30 year review of Pediatric and Adult Onset CVID: Clinical correlates and prognostic indicators" was submitted for publication. Cory Stingl, MD is a post-doctoral fellow in genomics and pediatric rheumatology fellow at Duke. His current research focuses on a rare condition called juvenile dermatomyositis that has a disproportionately high level of morbidity compared to other pediatric rheumatic diseases. Dr. Stingl's research interest is in developing innovative methods to improve outcomes for these patients. His research uses gene expression signatures to identify children with juvenile dermatomyositis who are unlikely to respond to standard treatment at diagnosis and need early escalation to non-standard biologic therapies to prevent morbidity and disability.
