  • Marc Jacob

    Marc Jacob

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Political Science

    BioMarc Jacob is a postdoctoral fellow with the Polarization Research Lab, a cross-university lab between Stanford, Dartmouth, and UPenn. His research interests are broadly focused on comparative politics, political economy, and political behavior. Marc uses experimental and causal inference research designs, as well as conducts comparative case studies, to examine the conditions under which citizens constrain politicians in their attempts to undermine democratic institutions. While he primarily focuses on European democracies, some of his work also covers the United States.

  • Veronica Jacobs-Edmondson

    Veronica Jacobs-Edmondson

    Senior Collections Assistant, Stanford University Archaeology Collections, Archaeology

    BioVeronica Jacobs-Edmondson (she/her) is the Collections Assistant of the Stanford University Archaeology Collections. She has a BA in Anthropology with a biological emphasis from the University of California, Santa Barbara and an MA in Museum Anthropology from Columbia University, where she participated in a collaborative effort to curate and design a permanent exhibit highlighting the effects of climate change on contemporary culture in the Pacific at the American Museum of Natural History. Her graduate research at Columbia largely focused on challenging traditional curatorial authority and the role of the 'outsider' in historic cultural knowledge-building. Before coming to SUAC, Jacobs-Edmondson worked with many types of museum collections, including those at the Fowler Museum at UCLA, USC Pacific Asia Museum, and San Diego Museum of Man. Her experience with collections ranges from working in osteology laboratories to working with contemporary fine art, with everything in between. Jacobs-Edmondson is responsible for the physical care of the objects at SUAC along with records and data management. She is passionate about ethical and respectful collecting, display, and stewardship of material culture, as well as ensuring equitable access to cultural collections, education, and resources.

  • Christine Jacobs-Wagner

    Christine Jacobs-Wagner

    Dennis Cunningham Professor, Professor of Biology and of Microbiology and Immunology

    BioChristine Jacobs-Wagner is a Dennis Cunningham Professor in the Department of Biology and the ChEM-H Institute at Stanford University. She is interested in understanding the fundamental mechanisms and principles by which cells, and, in particular, bacterial cells, are able to multiple. She received her PhD in Biochemistry in 1996 from the University of Li├Ęge, Belgium where she unraveled a molecular mechanism by which some bacterial pathogens sense and respond to antibiotics attack to achieve resistance. For this work, she received multiple awards including the 1997 GE & Science Prize for Young Life Scientists. During her postdoctoral work at Stanford Medical School, she demonstrated that bacteria can localize regulatory proteins to specific intracellular regions to control signal transduction and the cell cycle, uncovering a new, unsuspected level of bacterial regulation.

    She started her own lab at Yale University in 2001. Over the years, her group made major contributions in the emerging field of bacterial cell biology and provided key molecular insights into the temporal and spatial mechanisms involved in cell morphogenesis, cell polarization, chromosome segregation and cell cycle control. For her distinguished work, she received the Pew Scholars award from the Pew Charitable Trust, the Woman in Cell Biology Junior award from the American Society of Cell Biology and the Eli Lilly award from the American Society of Microbiology. She held the Maxine F. Singer and William H. Fleming professor chairs at Yale. She was elected to the Connecticut academy of Science, the American Academy of Microbiology and the National Academy of Sciences. She has been an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute since 2008.

    Her lab moved to Stanford in 2019. Current research examines the general principles and spatiotemporal mechanisms by which bacterial cells replicate, using Caulobacter crescentus and Escherichia coli as models. Recently, the Jacobs-Wagner lab expanded their interests to the Lyme disease agent Borrelia burgdorferi, revealing unsuspected ways by which this pathogen grows and causes disease
