Jennifer Robinson is a 2018-2022 Self Graduate Fellow pursuing a Ph.D. in bioengineering at the University of Kansas. She received a B.S. (2016) in chemical and biomolecular engineering with a focus in biology from Ohio University, Athens, OH. Robinson has a passion for cancer research that was fueled by close encounters with the disease through immediate family. She hopes to use her background in characterizing adhesion molecules on breast cancer cells, and her doctoral research at the University of Kansas, to propel her into a career developing accessible and affordable cancer diagnostic tools for rural communities.
