Janine Low-Marchelli, PhD

Dr. Janine Low-Marchelli has been passionate about science and education from a young age. Dr. Low-Marchelli earned a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego studying angiogenesis in breast cancer metastasis. In her postdoctoral work, Dr. Low-Marchelli investigated mechanisms of stem cell quiescence and tested novel therapeutics to leukemic stem cells. During this time as a K12-IRACDA teaching and research fellow, Dr. Low-Marchelli trained in scientific teaching methods and active learning strategies which have broad applications for effective teaching and learning both in academia and industry. Dr. Low-Marchelli joined The Jackson Laboratory as a Technical Information Scientist, applying both her scientific and education experiences to a customer-facing scientific support role. Dr. Low-Marchelli now manages the Technical Information Services team, a group of Ph.D.-trained scientists whose mission is to empower researchers to make informed decisions in support of the 3R’s when designing in vivo studies using mouse models.
