Dr. Shults (died 2015) was a researcher at Brighton Medical Facility.
Shults was working on genetically modifying sharks to make them more vicious and invincible, along with a team led by Dr. Gavin DeMarco. Dr. Shults offered Shay Lamden the chance to ease his terminal cancer under a clinical trial known as Project Carcharhinus. However, on December 11, 2013, the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator exploded, causing a shockwave that transformed Lamden in to a shark-man. Overcome with a great need to eat, he mauled on Dr. Shults, killing him.
