After Ursinus

  • Jeff Teigler

Dr. Jeffrey Teigler

Senior Scientist, Immune Response Modulation at Janssen Pharmaceuticals

I work on the frontlines to discover and develop the next wave of therapies against cancer and infectious diseases. My time at Ursinus prepared me by professors constantly pushing me to think outside the box and identify new ways of thinking about a given problem. Ursinus’ deep commitment to hands on lab training gave me the skills that helped me secure valuable internships and propelled me to a graduate fellowship at a top university.

I use the problem solving skills I developed at Ursinus every day, and the broad background Ursinus gave me in the sciences as well as giving me a global perspective helps me thrive every day in a global company focusing on bettering patients’ lives.

Fun Fact

I love travel and learning languages, and can now get off an airplane and manage in 8 languages.
