Biography:

Assistant Professor of Biomedical Sciences Magdia De Jesus' research involves the bioanalytical evaluation of enzymatic systems for forensic and biosensing applications.

De Jesus, who grew up in Harlem, New York City, joined the University's Department of Biomedical Sciences in the fall of 2015. She holds a joint appointment with UAlbany and the Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health. Her research interest focuses on the role of the intestinal immune system in recognizing oral vaccine delivery vehicles and fungal organisms implicated in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).

In addition to lab research at UAlbany, De Jesus enjoys sharing her science with the general public through Science on Tap, in Albany NY . She also shares her science with elementary schools as a program that she calls “A Scientist looks just like you” through Skype a Scientist and local visits.

De Jesus received her doctoral degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed her postdoctoral work as a CDC-APHL postdoctoral fellow and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute- Life Science Research Foundation (HHMI-LSRF) fellow at the Wadsworth Center.
