Dr. Jacque earned a PhD in Immunology from Tufts Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. His graduate studies focused on acute systemic inflammatory responses to infection, specifically innate signaling through toll-like receptors. Following his graduate training, Dr. Jacque completed a postdoctoral fellowship in curriculum design and evaluation, focusing on a project called The Great Diseases aiming to bringing biomedical learning to high school classrooms. Dr. Jacque's current research focuses on learning processes associated with designing and disseminating biomedical and health-science curricula for teachers and high-school students that teach critical health-related concepts, with the goal of broadening participation in science and increasing scientific and health literacy. His curricula have received national recognition by the National Science Teachers Association and his approach to teacher training has been recognized by the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Jacque teaches immunology in the Medical and Dental Schools and is co-course director for the MBS Immunology course.
