Jeremy Meier


University of Virginia, B.S. in Biology, B.S. in Biochemistry 2008
Hometown: Alpharetta, Ga.
Thesis adviser: Andrew Larner, Ph.D., biochemistry and molecular biology

Research interests:

Jeremy’s research will focus on the aberrant signaling pathways that are at work within cancer biology. Through a greater knowledge of these signaling cascades his hope is to develop better and more targeted approaches for cancer therapeutics. This will hopefully tie into his future clinical and research goals of working in the field of oncology.

Personal bio:

Jeremy was born in Syracuse, N.Y., and lived there for 11 years until his family moved to Rhode Island and then Alpharetta, Ga. After graduating from the University of Virginia, he worked as a laboratory technician in the Cardiovascular Research Center that further fueled his passion for research. He recently got married and loves life in the Richmond, Va., area. He enjoys playing all sports, and is a huge Syracuse Orangemen basketball fan.
