Jenna Galloway

Jenna Galloway received her B.A. in Biology from Johns Hopkins University and her Ph.D. in Genetics from Harvard University. Her graduate research was performed in the laboratory of Dr. Leonard Zon at Children’s Hospital, Boston, where she worked on pathways regulating blood stem cell biology and lineage fate decisions. After her Ph.D., she joined the lab of Dr. Clifford Tabin in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School, where she applied her knowledge of musculoskeletal development towards an improved understanding of the mechanisms leading to the congenital limb malformation, phocomelia. Currently, Dr. Galloway is an Assistant Professor in the Center for Regenerative Medicine and the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Her laboratory uses zebrafish genetics and stem cells to understand how tendons and ligaments form, organize, and regenerate with the ultimate goal of applying this knowledge towards the development of improved therapies for tendon and ligament injuries.
