Postdoctoral Fellow

PhD: Chemistry, University of Virginia (2016)
BS: Biology, Penn State Berks (2011)

Jen’s research aims to compare the binding affinity and selectivity of various Opa proteins with their cognate receptors, both in vivo (expressed on the surface of Neisseria gonhorrhoeae) and in vitro (reconstituted into liposomes). Additionally, she aims to identify the molecular determinants of the interactions between Opa proteins and their receptors in vitro, in order to gain a better understanding of bacterial pathogen – host interactions.
