Bio

Dr. Jensen is Chairman of the Department of Pathology in the School of Medicine and Chairman of the Board of Directors, ARUP Laboratories, University of Utah’s national diagnostic reference laboratory. He received his M.D. from Vanderbilt University, followed by residency training in Anatomic Pathology and research training in immunology at Washington University. Dr. Jensen joined the faculty of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Emory University in 1986, where he ultimately served as Professor, Vice Chair, Director of the Experimental Pathology Division, Medical Director of the Clinical Immunology Laboratory at Emory University Hospital, and Director of the interdepartmental graduate program in Immunology and Molecular Pathogenesis. He has broad interests in health care transformation, precision diagnostics, and the application of new technology in pathology and laboratory medicine. Dr. Jensen joined the University of Utah in 2004.
