ANDREW MORTON

Graduate Student, MD/PhD Program

Andrew graduated from Michigan State University with a BS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 2014.  As an undergraduate, he had several research experiences including exploring the effects of plant metabolites on colon cancer and investigating the molecular basis of epileptogenesis.  After graduation, he entered the CWRU MSTP in 2014 and began work full-time in the Scacheri laboratory in 2016.  Andrew is co-mentored by Dr. Jeremy Rich at the University of California San Diego, and he is currently working on a joint project between the two labs to uncover genomic alterations in cancer can disrupt epigenetic regulation.  Outside of the lab, he enjoys exploring all that Cleveland has to offer, including frequenting Playhouse Square, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and Mitchell’s Ice Cream.
