Jeenah Jung, MD/PhD


Jeenah Jung was born in Seoul, South Korea, then grew up in Chicago, IL. She attended Wellesley College for undergraduate, where she majored in Chemistry and minored in Physics. She developed an appreciation for biologic models for investigating complex pathology, which she further nurtured by pursuing MD/PhD at Emory University and Georgia Tech. For her PhD in biomedical engineering, she studied gene regulation at the post-transcriptional level in various disease models. There, she discovered an interest in cardiothoracic surgery, which brought her to the Yale Cardiothoracic Surgery residency. At Yale, she is training to be a better physician and surgeon. On her free time, she enjoys the company of her loving husband and energetic toddler.
