Tracy Bedrosian, PhD, is a Principal Investigator in the Institute for Genomic Medicine (IGM) at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. She leads a translational neuroscience laboratory that aims to identify genetic and molecular mechanisms of neurodevelopmental disease. Dr. Bedrosian is also an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.

Dr. Bedrosian studied Neuroscience at the University of Michigan where she worked as a research assistant in Dr. Huda Akil’s lab investigating genetic and environmental contributions to neuropsychiatric disease. She earned her Ph.D. in Neuroscience as an NDSEG graduate fellow in Dr. Randy Nelson’s lab at The Ohio State University, where she established the effects of circadian rhythm disruption on mood and brain plasticity. Dr. Bedrosian completed post-doctoral training as a Ruth L. Kirschstein NRSA postdoctoral fellow and NARSAD Young Investigator at the Salk Institute under the mentorship of Dr. Fred Gage. In this role, she became deeply interested in somatic mosaicism and neurodevelopment. Dr. Bedrosian furthered her training in genomics and bioinformatics as an NHGRI K01 Career Development awardee under the mentorship of Dr. Richard Wilson at Nationwide Children’s Hospital where she developed novel single-cell sequencing approaches and analyses for the detection of brain somatic variation.
