More About Lynetta Jobe

Lynetta Jobe, DVM, PhD completed her Bachelor of Science degrees in Animal Science and Biology at North Carolina State University. Following completion of her undergraduate studies, she went on to earn her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Tuskegee University (1992), Master of Science degree in Pharmacology from North Carolina State University (1996), and Doctor of Philosophy degree from Auburn University (2002).

As a graduate student and National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute postdoctoral fellow, Jobe investigated the pathophysiology of left ventricular remodeling in congestive heart failure. Later, as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Surgery at Emory University’s Carlyle Fraser Heart Center, she studied mechanisms of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury and myocardial contractile dysfunction, as well as new therapeutic approaches to attenuate myocardial injury resulting from myocardial ischemia, catheter-based angioplasty, and cardiac bypass surgery.

Jobe has previously served as a faculty member at Auburn University, Mercer University, and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore where she was involved in teaching at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional school levels. She joined the Medical Partnership faculty in November 2012.
