Jen received her Ph.D. (Immunology) at the University of Toronto in 1998. She went on to do a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School studying the complement pathway and then joined Biogen Inc. as a Staff Scientist in 2000. During her tenure at Biogen, she became interested in B cells, Multiple Sclerosis and the TNF superfamily of molecules. After 3 years in Industry, she returned to Academia as an Assistant Professor (Immunology) at the University of Toronto in 2003. In 2014 she assumed the role of Graduate Coordinator and in this role she spearheaded a new Applied MSc program in Immunology.

Jen's basic research continues to focus on how members of the TNF superfamily of molecules regulate immunity and autoimmunity. With respect to translational work, Dr. Gommerman is a co-PI on a collaborative study examining the role of B lymphocytes in Multiple Sclerosis patients, and she is the lead PI on a study examining the effect of global migration on susceptibility to autoimmune disease.

Jen has chaired the MS Society of Canada Biomedical grant panel, and is on the program committee for the American Association of Immunologists. In 2013 she co-chaired the 14th International TNF Meeting in Quebec City, Canada. She also serves as a section editor for the Journal of Immunology. Currently Jen holds funds from the MS Society of Canada, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research and the Connaught Foundation.
