Jordan received his B.S. in Biochemistry from Trinity University in 2010. While there, he worked in the laboratory of Adam R. Urbach and characterized a novel method of selective insulin detection. This work may have broader implications for the rational design of selective synthetic receptors. Jordan also spent a summer working in the laboratory of John B. MacMillan at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas where he did research in natural product medicinal chemistry. During his time there he extracted, purified, and characterized an antibiotic from the sponge, Agelas citrina. Jordan joined the MD-PhD program at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2010. He is currently in the Zang lab studying new pathways for T cell costimulation and coinhibition. His goal is to advance our understanding of immune regulation in hopes of discovering new therapeutic targets for autoimmune disorders.
