Carlee McClintock, PhD completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Neurobiology with a minor in Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin in 2004 before moving to Knoxville for graduate studies at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville (UTK). Through the UTK-ORNL Genome Science & Technology Program, she conducted her dissertation research on proteins at Oak Ridge National Laboratory utilizing electrochemistry, liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometry. In 2010, she earned her doctorate degree in Life Sciences with an emphasis in Bioanalytical Technologies. Following a three-year postdoctoral research fellowship in the Biochemistry/Cellular & Molecular Biology department at UTK, she joined Pain Consultants of East Tennessee in 2013 as Senior Scientist to operate the drug confirmation laboratory.
