Christine Langston’s research focuses primarily on improving the standards of care for disadvantaged patients, promoting healthy living across the lifespan, and increasing the quality of life for patients with chronic diseases. She is specifically interested in nursing as an intervention for increasing health outcomes for patients of color, how the relationship between nurse work-environment impacts patient health outcomes, and how the nurse practitioner practice restrictions impact care in disadvantaged communities.

Langston joined the Penn Nursing community after earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama. After graduating, she worked as a research assistant for two years at the Harvard University Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology Department in Cambridge, Massachusetts before moving to Philadelphia, where she became a Research Specialist and Lab Manager in the Biomedical Sciences Department at Penn.
