Andrey Sharov, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Dermatology at the Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine. He received his postdoctoral training her after completing his graduate degrees in Russia. Dr. Sharov is studying molecular mechanisms of skin development, with particular emphasis on the regulation and maintenance of adult stem cells in the skin. His research focuses on dissecting the signal transduction pathways which regulate stem cell quiescence to better understand how alterations in these signaling pathways contribute to melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers. In addition, Dr. Sharov studies a role of higher-order chromatin organization in the process of pigmentation funded by NIH/NIAMS.
