Stephanie Jensen

Stephanie JensenI am currently a 5th year Ph.D. Student studying Biochemistry at the University of Arizona. I perform interdisciplinary research in the laboratory of Dr. John Jewett, focusing on the use of viruses as biological scaffolds for chemical modification. Using both organic and biochemical techniques, I attempt to look for anti-viral targets to combat viral diseases that currently have no treatment.  In my free time, I am both a musician and distance runner with the long-term goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon -- I ran my first full marathon (Big Sur) in the spring of 2015.
