Jenora Denise Waterman

Education

Ph D: Functional Genomics, North Carolina State University at Raleigh, 2006

MS: Biology, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, 2001

BS: Biology, Bennett College, 1997


Research Interests

The primary focus of The Waterman Lab is to understand cellular and molecular mechanisms governing respiratory diseases affecting pigs and farm workers in concentrated animal feeding operations, such as swine confinement facilities (SCF). Specifically, modulation of oxidative stress and inflammation pathways in airway epithelial and lung tissues in response to SCF environment and organic dust exposures. Her team utilizes basic science and translational research approaches to develop models of respiratory diseases affecting farm animals and humans. Dr. Waterman holds a doctoral degree in Functional Genomics.
