Christopher Gregg


Dr. Gregg performed his Ph.D. studies at the University of Calgary in Canada in the field of neural stem cell biology. He was awarded the University of Calgary Chancellor’s Medal for his work on regenerative therapies and co-founded a biotechnology company called Stem Cell Therapeutics Corp. In 2006, he moved to Harvard University and was awarded a Human Frontiers Fellowship. At Harvard, he performed postdoctoral studies focused on developing genome analysis methods that can distinguish the expression of maternal and paternal gene copies in the brain. He was awarded the Eppendorf & Science Prize in Neurobiology in 2010 and his work was selected as one of the “Top 10 Breakthroughs of the Year” by the National Institutes of Mental Health Research. In 2012, he was selected to be a New York Stem Cell Foundation Robertson Investigator and is an assistant professor in the Department of Neurobiology & Anatomy and Human Genetics at the University of Utah School of Medicine. Dr. Gregg’s lab is developing new technologies and approaches to discover how the genome creates complex behavioral traits and is elucidating new mechanisms that contribute to brain disorders and diseases.
