Sarah Morton, M.D., Ph.D.
Sarah Morton is an associated scientist at the Broad Institute, attending neonatologist at Boston Children's Hospital, and instructor at Harvard Medical School.
She received her B.S. in chemistry and biochemistry from the University of Michigan, followed by her M.D./Ph.D. in the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of California, San Francisco. There, her graduate work with Deepak Srivastava focused on the role of miRNAs in cardiac development. She then completed pediatrics residency in the Boston Combined Residency Program, and neonatology fellowship in the Harvard Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship. After clinical fellowship, she joined the laboratory of Christine and Jon Seidman where she has studied genetic contributions to congenital heart disease risk, as well as genetic modifiers of outcomes for congenital heart disease patients.
Morton is enthusiastic about the increased positive impact of genomic science on patient care, and always finds inspiration from the Broad Program in Medical and Population Genetics community and primer presenters.
