Chris Sturgeon, PhD
Dr. Sturgeon is an Associate Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He earned a Ph.D. in Biochemistry on cell cycle regulation at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Sturgeon completed postdoctoral studies at the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Toronto, studying pluripotent stem cell-derived hematopoiesis. Prior to joining Mount Sinai, Dr. Sturgeon was a member of the Washington University School of Medicine Hematology Division. His studies focus on characterizing the signal pathways that control human pluripotent stem cell differentiation towards hematopoietic stem/progenitors, and how this impacts the development and function of immune cells.
