Kendall Van Keuren-Jensen, PhD

Professor, Neurogenomics Division at TGen

Deputy Director of Research Resources

Director, Center for Noninvasive Diagnostics

Location: Phoenix, AZ United States

Kendall Van Keuren-Jensen received her PhD 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 with Dr. Hollis Cline. She also has a Master’s degree in pharmacology and toxicology from the University of Kansas, and she double majored in biology and anthropology at Boston University. Dr Van Keuren-Jensen’s lab examines dysregulated RNAs in neurodegenerative disease, including the RNA cargo of extracellular vesicles, using several different sequencing platforms and a diverse set of bioinformatics tools for analysis.
