Joany Jackman's Biography



Joany Jackman, Senior Scientist, Research and Exploratory Development, The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

Dr. Jackman received a B.A. in American Studies, Brandeis University; B.S. in Biological Sciences, University of Connecticut; and a Ph.D., Program in Cell and Molecular Biology, University of Vermont. She was a post doctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health before becoming an assistant professor at Georgetown University School of Medicine where she investigated the role of cell cycle control and apoptosis in cancer progression. Dr. Jackman began working in the area of infectious disease at US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease in 1997. Here her focus was to develop novel methods of rapid pathogen identification and diagnosis of infection using mass spectrometry and microarray methodologies. Dr. Jackman joined the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in 2000 where she has continued her work in infectious disease detection and identification. In 2003 she received a Christopher Columbus Homeland Security Award in the area of Emergency Medicine for novel diagnostics using breath. She is also a member of the JHU Center for Point of Care Test for STD which funds and facilitates development and commercialization of point of care tests. Dr. Jackman and Center collaborators have been funded by the NIBIB for the last 10 years to help new developers and developers with existing technologies devise and commercialize tests for sexually transmitted infections in a variety of POC settings.

The Johns Hopkins University Center for Point of Care Technology (POCT) for Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) is one of three collaborating centers in the Point-of-Care Technology Research Network (POCTRN) hosted by the National Institute of Health (NIBIB).  The purpose of our Center is to assist developers of POCT along the process of commercialization.  Similar to other Centers in the POCTRN, the mission of the JHU Center for POCT for STD is to facilitate technology development by providing a number of tools and resources to enhance POCT performance.  These resources include 1)access to subject matter experts, 2) technical design reviews, 3)information on best practices, market characteristics and end user needs, 4) provide  patient samples at no cost, 5) evaluate devices in clinical settings and at low resource sites, 6) access to our Technology Watch Database and 7) targeted funding for key developmental concepts.    86% of the technologies funded through the Center have been successful in obtaining additional funding to sustain their advancement towards commercialization.
