Dr. Patricia Jackson completed her undergraduate education in chemistry, graduating Summa Cum Laude at Cumberland College. Later, she continued her graduate training at Purdue University,working on high field NMR and structural biology in the laboratories of Dr. David Gorenstein. In 1993, she came to UAB as a postdoctoral fellow in the Comprehensive Cancer Center NMR Core Facility, then moved to the UAB Department of Chemistry where she taught organic chemistry and did biophysical-based research until 2000. She then joined the laboratory of Dr. Ed Blalock in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics. In 2009 she moved with Dr. Blalock to the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy & Critical Care Medicine and was promoted to the rank of Assistant Professor of Medicine.
