Dr. Cuticchia received a PhD in Genetics from the University of Georgia and went on to perform genetic research in academic, not-for-profit, and biotechnology companies.

He was admitted to the North Carolina State Bar in 2009. Dr. Cuticchia is available for seminars on topics of law, genetics, health as well as their intersection.
