Educated at the State College of Kentucky, Morgan graduated in 1886 with a BSc. After a summer at the Marine Biology School in Annisquan, Massachusetts, Morgen began graduate studies in zoology at Johns Hopkins University. After two years the State College awarded him a masters degree in science. He was awarded a large fellowship from Johns Hopkins and his work on sea spiders resulted in his PhD in 1890.

In 1894, he went to Naples, Italy for research and worked with Hans Driesch. When he returned to Bryn Mawr in 1895, he was awarded full professorship and published his first book, The Development of the Frog's Eggs (1897). In 1904, he joined Columbia University as professor of experimental zoology. Morgan had a great deal of success in Drosophilia research. In 1927, he received an offer from George Ellery Hale to establish a school of biology at the California Institute of Technology, which he did the following year. Morgan served as the president of the National Academy of Sciences from 1927 to 1931. Throughout his career he held many prestigious positions and won many awards including the Darwin Medal in 1924 and the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1933 for his discoveries concerning the role played by the chromosome in heredity. His works include Regeneration (1901), Heredity and Sex (1913), Mechanism of Mendelian Heredity (1915), The Physical Basis of Heredity (1919), The Theory of the Gene (1926), What Is Darwinism?
