My name is Jennifer
Owen. Iím 25 years old and am a Colorado native. I
graduated from Fort Collins High School in 1993 with the vague idea
wanted to be involved in science somehow but was unsure about the specifics.
Microbiology, Genetics, and Chemistry were my favorite high school
I was blessed with wonderful, inspiring teachers who encouraged me
continue in that direction. I attended Colorado College, in Colorado
for a year and a half and then transferred to CSU. Now I am approaching
graduation (Fall 2000) with a degree in Biochemistry.
I was given the opportunity to start working for Dr. Lianne Pilon-Smits
Dr. Marinus Pilon in the summer of Ď99 and have really enjoyed everything
have learned so far. Iím confident that science is the right place
afterall. Although some of the work is tedious and the results sometime
me want to scream, in general research stimulates and satisfies an
curious nature that Iíve had all my life.
