Jordan received his B.Sc. in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Radford University (2015). Jordan completed his PhD in UBC Zoology in 2021. Jordan’s work focused on the local regulation of glucocorticoids in immune organs and several brain regions during mouse development. His projects investigated the roles of the intestinal microbiome, stress, and local regeneration of an inactive glucocorticoid metabolite.
