Jocelyn Chen

Undergraduate Student

Born in Los Angeles, California, Jocelyn lived in three countries throughout her life and learned to speak a few languages along the way. She attended  the Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, Connecticut before continuing to study Biomedical Engineering and Psychology as an undergraduate student at Columbia University. Under Naveed’s mentorship in the GVN Lab, Jocelyn is interested in the bone marrow’s role in forming various niches, hematopoiesis, and immunity, and different ways of modeling the bone on the organ-on-a-chip platform. She hopes to one day deliver her work in stem cell research to real-world patients and incorporate her interests in sustainable development and global health into medicine. Outside of the lab, Jocelyn enjoys practicing yoga, traveling, and managing her puppy’s instagram account.
