Kristen Fay Gorman

Kristen Fay Gorman: BS from University of Washington (Seattle), PhD from Simon Fraser University (British Columbia). Kristen’s PhD thesis, under the supervision of Felix Breden PhD, was centered on establishing fish as models for human heritable spinal curvatures. Her postdoctoral training was at Sainte Justine Children’s Hospital Research Center (Montreal). With Alain Moreau’s team, she worked with human IS clinical, genomic, and cellular data, while continuing work with the medaka and guppy. Her goals are to integrate insights gained from these experiences into research discoveries and learning tools.
