Dr. Jennifer H. Shaw received her PhD in Pharmacology in 2000 from The University of Montana School of Pharmacy. Since 2005, she has been teaching medical physiology and pharmacology at Oklahoma State University where she employed weekly clinical case-based learning as well as team-based learning approaches to facilitate student comprehension of physiological and pharmacological concepts.
Dr. Shaw has mentored both PhD and MS students as well as several undergraduate research scholars. Her basic science research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health as well as the National Science Foundation. Dr. Shaw has published in journals such as The American Journal of Physiology, Frontiers in Cellular & Infection Microbiology, Comparative Biochemistry & Physiology, Microcirculation, Microvascular Research, and Infection & Immunity.
Dr. Shaw's research background includes the use of: i) a murine model to study the pathogenesis of and immune response to Chlamydia trachomatis, ii) in vitro assays as well as an extremophile fish model to study the oxidative mediators hydrogen peroxide and hydrogen sulfide, which are both relevant in vascular biology. These research projects have been funded by the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation.
