Catriona Jamieson


Dr. Jamieson received her BS.c. in biology (genetics), Ph.D. in microbiology and M.D. from the University of British Columbia. After completing a residency program in internal medicine, she trained at Stanford University Medical Center in bone marrow transplantation and hematology. Dr. Jamieson is both a hematologist-oncologist and stem cell biologist. She became an instructor in hematology at Stanford in 2003, following a post-doctoral stem cell biology research fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Irving L. Weissman. She then joined the UC San Diego faculty of medicine in November 2005. At UC San Diego, Dr. Jamieson has continued to build on her national and international reputation for her translational research on stem cells and cancer, particularly in the area of hematologic malignancies. She was the first recipient of a CIRM grant to derive and characterize cancer stem cells from embryonic stem cells, and has received a number of awards including the Forbeck Scholar Award.
