BS, James Madison University (2015)


Hi, my name is Joe Balsamo and I grew up in Flemington, New Jersey before moving to Castle Rock, Colorado. I received my B.S. in Biotechnology from James Madison University in 2015. Following graduation, I worked for LabCorp performing clinical diagnostics for women’s health before attending Vanderbilt University. Currently, I work in the Hong lab studying zebrafish development, drug discovery, and cardiovascular biology. Outside of lab, I enjoy exploring Nashville’s food scene and attending hockey games.
