About Francis E. Jenney Jr.

I teach Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Genetics in both the Masters and the DO Programs. In order to understand human biology ‘mind, body, and spirit’, it is critical to understand the molecular mechanisms which are the foundation. In order to incorporate scientific thinking and evidence-based medicine, I include recent scientific literature in all of our discussions. I cover topics such as basic metabolism, the human Microbiota, nutritional biochemistry, and the genetics of various diseases such as cardiac diseases, neurological disorders, and cancer. 

The research in my lab involves the study of metalloproteins from hyperthermophiles. These proteins are highly stable and hold great promise for both medical and commercial processes. We are in particular looking at utilizing these proteins as potential treatments for cancer and ischemia/reperfusion injury, as well as the potential role of hydrogenases in biofuel production. 

At home Dr. Jenney enjoys gardening and learning how to relax from his dog Clarence, aka “Mr. Fabulous”.


Present Associate Professor of Biochemistry, Dept. of Biomedical Sciences, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine Department of Bio-Medical Sciences
