Evonne Jean

Evonne is a graduate student in the Immunology Graduate Group (IGG) in the Biomedical Graduate Studies (BGS) Program at UPenn. Evonne’s scientific interests include studying neuroimmune interactions, specifically, how neurogenic inflammation is initiated, downmodulated, and tuned appropriately to drive innate immune phenotypes. In the Herbert lab, Evonne hopes to utilize models of Type II inflammation to understand how sensory neurons contribute to the onset and resolution of inflammatory events.

Evonne has been selected as Co-Chair for Outreach for the Immunology Graduate Student Association (IGA) Board for the 2020-2021 school year.
