Dr. Jessica Lehoczky received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Mathematics from Lehigh University and went on to work on the Human Genome Project at the Whitehead Center for Genome Research (now Broad Institute). Jessica earned her PhD in Human Genetics from the University of Michigan, where under the mentorship of Dr. Jeff Innis, she studied the transcriptional regulation of Hox genes during limb development. For her postdoctoral research, she joined the lab of Dr. Cliff Tabin in the Genetics Department at Harvard Medical School. Her research focused on the endogenous process of mouse digit tip regeneration, which she continues to explore in her independent research lab.
