Dr. Mulle has had a lifelong interest in the genetic etiology of schizophrenia, motivated by her own family history. Originally from Long Island, New York, she completed her undergraduate degree in biology at Johns Hopkins University. She then earned her MPH with a concentration in genetic epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. She went on to complete her PhD in Human Genetics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. After a post-doctoral fellowship with Dr. Stephen Warren at Emory University, she joined the faculty at Emory and was there until 2021 when she accepted a position at CABM with an appointment in the Department of Psychiatry.
Dr. Mulle loves her husband and children, her dogs, her research program, and Beyonce, in that order. She currently has three large cow-shaped dogs, which is both too many and not enough
