Going with the flow: the role of fluid flow in brain health and disease

January 26, 2019
An interactive session led by Dr. Jennifer Munson

Dr. Jenny Munson is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics. She received her Bachelor’s in Neuroscience and Chemical Engineering from Tulane University and her Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Georgia Tech. She was a Fulbright Scholar and Whitaker Scholar in Switzerland, where she completed her postdoctoral fellowship at L’Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. Dr. Munson was the 2016 Rita Schaffer Young Investigator Award winner from the Biomedical Engineering Society and a 2017 Young Innovator in Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering. Her work focuses on the role of fluid flow and drainage in brain and breast cancers, drug delivery, and tissue engineering and is funded by the National Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society. She works with a team of great graduate students and postdoctoral researchers applying techniques in cell culture, computational modeling, and patient data analysis to study these complex problems.
