Jefferson Jean-Paul ’21

Johnson & Johnson Pre-professional Heathcare
Centenary University
Major: Biology

Undergraduate research has been a central part of the college experience for Jefferson Jean-Paul ’21. The biology major traveled to Florida’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute to study cancer cells in sea turtles, and later placed in the top 10 in an International research competition in Texas. A future cardiologist, Jefferson says, “I never envisioned opportunities like doing research in Florida or traveling to Texas to present my own independent research. I just never thought things like that were possible. Centenary is a very supportive and motivating university.”
