Professional Experience

Dr. Mandal obtained her PhD in Molecular Biophysics and Structural Biology from the University of Pittsburgh in 2018, and held a post-doctoral research fellowship position in Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh from 2019-2022. For her dissertation work, Jennifer primarily utilized multidimensional magic-angle-spinning (MAS) solid state NMR and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to study aggregation behavior and solid state structures of protein deposits and amyloid fibrils implicated in protein deposition diseases, including cataract and Huntington’s disease. As a post-doctoral fellow, Jennifer used in vitro and murine models to study mitochondrial functioning and the role of the mitochondrial ATP/ADP transporter adenine nucleotide translocase (ANT) in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Jennifer has published scientific research manuscripts in several peer-reviewed research journals, including a first-author paper in Nature Communications. She has presented her research at several national and international conferences, including at Biophysical Society.
