Biography
Jennifer Jackson, Ph.D. is the Director of Translational Science and Strategy at Personal Genome Diagnostics (PGDx). Jennifer has over 15 years of oncology-focused research and industry experience including 8 years focused on liquid biopsy in the clinical setting. She received her B.S from the University of Florida and her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Emory University School of Medicine. During her postdoctoral appointment in the Department of Surgery at Boston University Medical Center, her training focused on assessing the clinical utility of ctDNA as a biomarker for early detection of cancer and monitoring of minimal residual disease in response to therapy using digital PCR and next-generation sequencing (NGS). Following her postdoctoral training, she joined RainDance Technologies and later, Bio-Rad Laboratories as a Global Market Development Scientist and served as a trusted advisor to the company and to the customer base to facilitate market access and scientific success. Since 2017, Dr. Jackson has brought her expertise in precision medicine to PGDx to support the goals of driving clinical expansion and uptake of NGS, building industry partnerships and academic collaborations, and helping to advance new applications within oncology diagnostics.
