Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Sarah Bronson is known for the creation of targeted transgenic lines, where small recombinant transgenic sequences, as well as bacterial artificial chromosome-based transgenic sequences, are introduced in a single-copy at the X-linked hypoxanthine phosphoribosyl transferase (HPRT) locus by a directly selectable homologous recombination event in murine embryonic stem cells. She has had a long-standing interest in manipulating the mouse genome via genetic alteration of mouse embryonic stem cells to study disease of hematologic, immunologic, developmental and metabolic importance. 

Teaching and educational interests

Dr. Sarah Bronson is a Distinguished Educator of the College of Medicine who has been active in training doctoral students, serving on dissertation committees, directing and developing graduate degree programs, revising and directing curriculum and developing teaching metrics. She also participates in the undergraduate medical curriculum as a small-group facilitator. At the faculty level, Dr. Bronson co-directs the nationally recognized Junior Faculty Development Program at the College of Medicine, a program with a holistic curriculum and mentored project designed to enable sustainable career trajectories in an academic health system. In this capacity and in her co-directorship of the Grants Academy at the College of Medicine, she has had a sustained impact on the careers of more than 200 faculty members at the College of Medicine, and many more in less formal contexts. She is particularly interested in the professional development topics of interdisciplinary research, scholarship, leadership and resilience.
