Jennifer R. Peters-Hall Ph.D.

UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas

Dr. Jennifer Peters-Hall received her B.S. in Genetic Engineering from Cedar Crest College (Allentown, PA) in 2007. She went on to receive her Ph.D. from the George Washington University in Biochemistry and Systems Biology in 2014. Her graduate studies were carried out in the lab of Dr. Mary C. Rose at Children National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. The focus of her dissertation was establishing in vitro airway glandular models as well as studying the differences between CF and non-CF airway secretions on the proteomic level. She is currently carrying out her postdoctoral studies in the lab of Dr. Jerry Shay and Dr. Woodring Wright where she is funded as a CFF postdoctoral fellow. Her current project is to create isogenic HBE cells with conditional reprogramming and CRISPR technnologies, in which CFTR is wild-type or mutant in the same genetic background, to better understand the primary effects of mutant CFTR in non-CF HBE cells with no history of CF disease.
