Mauldin previously served as a graduate student intern at the U.Va. Patent Foundation (now the Licensing & Ventures Group) while completing his Ph.D. in Cell Biology at the University of Virginia, where he studied the signaling mechanisms that regulate cytokine gene expression in macrophages following bacterial infection. Prior to graduate school, Mauldin worked as an analytical chemist in the Volatile Organic Compounds group at the U.S. Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention, where he measured human exposure to environmental pollutants. Mauldin earned Bachelor of Science degrees in chemistry and applied biology with honors from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
