Jennifer Dan

Dr. Jennifer Dan graduated from Boston University combined MD/PhD program. I received my Ph.D. in the Department of Microbiology/Immunology Training Program where I worked on vaccine development for Crytococcus neoformans in Dr. Stuart Levitz's laboratory. Prior to this, I received my B.A. in Classics and B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I am currently a PGY-2 resident and will be pursuing my fellowship in infectious diseases.
