About Jameson
My interest in this summer program is the opportunity to contribute and learn about the processes and functions behind human health and our relationship to the environment. Past projects undertaken at the CEHS, such as those investigating the pathophysiology of asthma, sparked my interest as they not only investigate biological and chemical processes, but also include the potential to improve lives through research.

As an aspiring microbiologist I hope to apply my knowledge and skills to further our understanding of human health and the role microbes play in our lives. As a native Montanan, I’ve always appreciated the role of the environment in shaping our lives and our health. The summer program at the Center offers an incredible opportunity to integrate these aspects in a lab setting. This summer I’ll be working with Chris Migliaccio on bone marrow-derived macrophages as a model for studying the role of autophagy in particle-induced inflammation. Research is a new experience for me, but one I’m excited to take part in and learn as much as I can.
