Dr. Grace Walton earned her Ph.D. in Nutrition Sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where she studied NR4A nuclear receptors in the context of diabetes and insulin resistance. She moved to the University of Kentucky for a post-doctoral fellowship, where she studied molecular mechanisms of exercise physiology. She then remained at Kentucky as a staff scientist and then as Research Assistant Professor, where she continued to study exercise physiology in vitro, in mice, and in clinical trials. She has published numerous first author papers in high quality journals, and is excited to pivot to oncology work at Hera Biolabs.
