Jenny Jiang is an associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. She obtained her Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology and did her postdoc training at Stanford University. Her lab focuses on systems immunology and immune engineering by developing technologies that enable high-throughput, high-content, single cell profiling of T cells in health and diseases. These technologies in turn help them to study fundamentals of the immune system directly in humans. Resulted biomarkers can be further developed into both diagnostic tools and therapeutic agents. Dr. Jiang is a recipient of the prestigious NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00), Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovator Award, NSF CAREER Award, a Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Ben Barres Early Career Acceleration award, and was recently selected as one of National Academy of Medicine 2019 Emerging Leaders in Health and Medicine.
