- Jennifer Grant, PhD is an Assistant Profess of Biology at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Dr. Grant has applied her expertise in biochemistry to develop quantitative mass spectrometric approaches to understand the proteomics changes associated with cardiac and neurological pathophysiology. She received her bachelor's degree from the Oberlin College chemistry department, and her PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She presently serves on the Education Committee for the American Society of Mass Spectrometry (ASMS), and is the Past Chari (and Founding Chair) of the ASMS Interest Group Undergraduate Research in Mass Spectrometry.
