Lunch With A Scientist: Jordan Gass on skin secretions in frogs
- April 22, 2021 -

Jordan Gass was born in Las Cruces, New Mexico and I completed her undergraduate degree at New Mexico State University where she double majored in Biology and Microbiology. While in college, she discovered a passion for disease ecology and decided to pursue a master’s degree at the University of Nevada, Reno where she is studying the host-pathogen interactions of amphibians with a pathogenic fungus. She titles this talk: AMPing up their defenses: investigating the role of the innate immune system of the Panamanian Golden frog. Thank you to Garden to Glass and the Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund for sponsoring this lesson!
