Dalton Stamps, BS, attended California State Polytechnic University, Pomona majoring in Biotechnology. During his junior and senior summers, he participated in the research internship program at Cedars-Sinai investigating the effects that cytokines have on T cell differentiation in the laboratory of Kathrin Michelsen, PhD. During this time, he also investigated the role of the transcription factor Batf3 in the development of obesity in mice. After earning his degree, he went on to work in the group of Alberto Yanez, PhD in the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute investigating the effect that microbial ligands have on the development of myeloid progenitor cells in IRF8-deficient mice. Following the departure of Dr. Yanez to start his lab in Spain, Stamps studied the development and function of myeloid cells using iPSCs with Helen Goodridge, PhD.
