Shriram Chair of Bioengineering, Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Chemical Engineering
Jennifer Cochran is the Shriram Chair of the Department of Bioengineering at Stanford University. She is a Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, Chemical Engineering and a member of the Cancer Biology, Biophysics, and Immunology graduate programs. Dr. Cochran serves as the Director of the Stanford/NIH Biotechnology pre-doctoral training program, and co-Director of the Stanford NIST pre-doctoral training program. Her research group uses interdisciplinary approaches in chemistry, engineering, and biophysics to study complex biological systems and to develop new tools for basic science and biomedical applications. Dr. Cochran translational interests span protein-based drug discovery and development for applications in oncology and regenerative medicine, and development of new technologies for high-throughput protein analysis and engineering. Dr. Cochran obtained her Ph.D. in Biological Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Biological Engineering.

Associate Professor of Biology and, by courtesy, of Chemical and Systems Biology
My interdisciplinary research group draws on diverse scientific cultures to develop a creative, rigorous and quantitative approach to the fundamental question of how growth drives cell division. Our diverse backgrounds include mathematics, physics, engineering, biochemistry, genetics, and cell, molecular, and systems biology. This reflects my interdisciplinary training (BS Mathematics; BS Physics - MIT 1999; PhD Applied Mathematics - Cambridge 2004; Postdoctoral training Genetics, Cell, and Systems Biology - Rockefeller)
