Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson
Deputy Director for Life Sciences
Problems with Evolution, Age of the Earth, Human Origins


After receiving his Ph.D. in Cell and Developmental Biology from Harvard Medical School in 2009, Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson joined ICR as a Research Associate. While at Harvard, he assisted in adult stem cell research, specifically on the role of Vitamin D in regulating blood stem cells. Dr. Jeanson has a B.S. in Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, where his research efforts involved working with single-cell algae to decipher molecular mechanisms of plant function. Additionally, he has submitted testimony to the Massachusetts governing bodies in opposition to human embryonic stem cell research and has been a panelist at the Massachusetts Citizens for Life convention. As Deputy Director for Life Sciences, Dr. Jeanson’s current research at ICR involves the investigation of molecular mechanisms of biological change from a young-earth perspective. He regularly contributes research articles to ICR's monthly magazine Acts & Facts and is the author of The Lost Treasures of Genesis and a contributor to Guide to Creation Basics and Creation Basics & Beyond.
