Jessica Faupel-Badger completed her PhD in Tumor Biology at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, MN, and then joined the Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program (CPFP) at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Bethesda, MD, for her postdoctoral fellowship. During her time in this fellowship, she received a Master of Public Health degree in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from George Washington University, Washington, DC.
The properties of cancer cells have fascinated Jessica since her first research experiences as an undergraduate student. She now enjoys introducing others to the complexities of cancer biology and to how these fundamental properties can be exploited for both therapeutic and prevention strategies.
Jessica has been part-time adjunct faculty in the Biotechnology Education Program since 2009. She has taught both Cancer Biology and Molecular Targets and Cancer on-site and online.
