Professor, Neurogenomics Division
Co-Director, Center for Noninvasive Diagnostics
Dr. Van Keuren-Jensen studies extracellular material shed into biofluids. The minimally invasive nature for collecting extracellular information from biofluids allows for frequent sampling, with the potential to closely monitor pathophysiological mechanisms of traumatic injury and disease. She received her Ph.D. from Stonybrook University at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York where she studied the role of activity-regulated genes in synaptic transmission and neuronal morphology. Following her Ph.D. She also has a Master’s degree in pharmacology and toxicology from the University of Kansas. She received her B.A. from Boston University.
