Assistant Professor, Natural Sciences
(603) 526-3379 | james.jukosky@colby-sawyer.edu

Joined faculty in 2010. B.S. in Zoology from University of New Hampshire and a Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular, and Systems Physiology from Dartmouth College. Professor Jukosky's has way too many research interests, they include: the effects of pollutants on reproduction in wildlife, how chronic exposure to arsenic in drinking water impairs the immune system, using recombineering to engineer knockout mouse models, the effects of cigarette smoke exposure on antimicrobials peptides produces in the upper airways, and Canada Warbler genetics.
