Jacqueline Hubbard graduated from the University of Vermont in with a B.S. in Biochemistry and a minor in Pharmacology. She then enrolled in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology graduate program at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) and earned her M.S. and Ph.D. There, she determined mechanisms of astrocytic change in epilepsy and tested the efficacy of potential new antiepileptic drugs. After spending one additional year as a postdoctoral researcher at UCR, she took a position as a Clinical Chemistry Fellow at the University of California, San Diego. She has been working in the Toxicology Laboratory under the supervision of Robert Fitzgerald, Ph.D., D.A.B.C.C. since July 2017. Her primary research project involves using liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry to quantify the concentrations of cannabinoids in oral fluid, breath, and whole blood samples, which will be correlated to level of impairment while driving.
