Elizabeth A. Jacobsen, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, College of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Arizona

Elizabeth Jacobsen, mentee and colleague of the late Mayo Clinic researcher James J. Lee, Ph.D., is an expert in both mouse models of immune mechanisms of inflammation and eosinophil biology. She has identified eosinophils as immune regulatory cells that can be differentially activated to induce polarization of T cells and activate dendritic cells and macrophages in respiratory inflammation. With collaborators, Jacobsen also has found that eosinophils are immune regulating or diagnostic markers in homeostasis and conditions such as asthma, transplant, bladder cancer and inflammatory bowel disease.
