Jon Coren

Dr. Coren acquired his PhD degree in Genetics at the Cornell University in 1991, and he completed his academic and industrial postdoc study at Thomas Jefferson from 1991-1993 and DuPont Merck Pharmaceutical company from 1993 – 1997 respectively. Dr. Coren was the associate professor of Biology at the Elizabesthtown College from 2002 to 2018; during that period, his lab’s research centered on the human genome related studies. In particular, the Coren lab carried out research trying to treat cancers by expressing p53 tumor suppressor gene in human tumor cell lines, and, meanwhile, the lab is also interested in the investigation of the optimal transfection reagent for potential gene therapy studies. In 2012, the lab constructed an arrayed 115,000-member human genomic library encapsulated in the P1 Artificial Chromosome (PAC) shuttle vector pJCPAC-Mam2, which can be utilized in genomic studies like genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in both human and animal cell models hence aiding the validation of gene therapy targets.
