Enjoy this brief interview with ArunA Bio Research Associate Caroline Jackson. Jackson graduated from the University of Georgia with Bachelor’s degrees in Cellular Biology and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Based in Jackson’s college town of Athens, Georgia, ArunA Bio manufactured neural stem cells for the world’s leading research organizations for over 12 years.

Currently, they are advancing a new class of cell-free biologics, exosomes, for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders and leveraging their novel platform to optimize the delivery of RNAs, antibodies, genes, and small molecules for our partners. Through this platform and their partners, they are striving to improve outcomes for neurodegenerative, genetic, and rare diseases.

In her interview, Jackson discusses the day-to-day responsibilities of her job. Originally on a pre-med track, she reveals what drew her to research instead.

“Lifelong learning is one of the biggest things that attracted me to medicine. You have to constantly keep up with new information, and that’s also a great thing to me about research and science—you’re constantly learning,” Caroline says.

Thank you to Caroline Jackson for participating in this interview, and thank you to ArunA Bio. We at Georgia Bio are proud of the work they do to make Georgia a leader in the biosciences industry.
