Academic Bio

Dr. Arrington received his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University and his M.D./Ph.D. from the University of Iowa Medical School. He completed postgraduate training in pediatrics and pediatric cardiology at the University of Utah School of Medicine where he is currently an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pediatric Cardiology.

In 2007, Dr. Arrington was appointed Co-Director of the Pediatric Cardiology Phenotype-Genotype Core, a repository of clinical data and biological specimens from patients with congenital heart disease. Using samples from the core along with powerful genealogical resources in Utah, he and his collaborators are employing whole genome sequencing methods to study large Utah kindreds with heart defects to discover the genetic anomalies responsible for the defects.

Dr. Arrington has been the Principal Investigator of grants from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Thrasher Foundation, the Doris Duke Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. He is currently funded through the NIH to study left-right development in vertebrates and through the Doris Duke Foundation to study the genetics of congenital heart defects. Dr. Arrington’s research has resulted in over 20 peer-reviewed publications.
