Dr. Crisman, Professor at JCC and Director of the Biotechnology ProgramAbout Dr. Jacqueline Crisman
For 25 years, I have been a part of the international community of scientists as a researcher at several institutions, including the National Institutes of Health. I was also a member of the faculty at Pennsylvania State College of Medicine where I worked with Judith Bond, Ph.D., the current president of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Dr. Bond is also the president of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology.

My research has been published in a variety of textbooks and in theJournal of Biological ChemistryAmerican Journal of Physiology,Journal of Immunology, and others as recently as 2011.  Also, my work appeared on the cover of the Journal of Immunology in 2004, and the cover of the Journal of Biological Chemistry in 2001. More recently, I returned home to be closer to family and accepted a faculty position at Houghton College, where I performed undergraduate research and was director of the pre-medical program. I left Houghton to build the JCC biotechnology program in 2008.

I am interested in the role of metalloproteases and chemokines in white blood cell and cancer cell dissemination in tissue. I have also spent a number of years studying inflammatory bowel disease and other types of chronic inflammation. In addition, I've participated in the Science Undergraduate Research Initiative.

I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions, and feel free to check out my interview in Science Magazine.
