    The main focus my research is combining continuous and discrete mathematical modeling, numerical simulation and in vivo experiments to gain deeper understanding of tumor growth and vascular structure at the molecular, cellular, and tissue levels.



    The LS&A Imes and Moore Faculty Award is awarded to Trachette Jackson.     2011
    The award recognizes Trachette for serving as a role model for mathematical scientists and making exceptional contributions to students from under-represented minority groups.
    Trachette Jackson was the recipient of the Blackwell-Tapia prize in Mathematics.     2010
    for her mathematical contributions and efforts to address the problem of the under-representation of minorities in mathematics.
    Trachette Jackson has been named one of the Emerging Scholars of the Year by Diverse Issues In Higher Education magazine.      2008
    She will be profiled in one of the magazine's 2008 issues. The scholars are nationally recognized for their research, educational background, publishing record, teaching record, competitiveness and uniqueness of field of study, and recommendations from other faculty members, department chairs and students. Diverse: Issues In Higher Education is America's preeminent newsmagazine that covers news and information about the ever-changing world of higher education.
    Trachette Jackson has received a James S. McDonnell Foundation 21st Century Research Award for her project "Combining continuous and discrete approaches to study sustained angiogenesis associated with vascular tumor growth."      2005
    The 21st Century Research Awards are designed to support research projects with a high probability of generating new knowledge and insights. The Complex Systems program supports scholarship and research directed toward the development of theories and models that can be applied to the study of complex, nonlinear systems. Trace's project combines mathematical modeling, numerical simulation and in vivo tumor vascularization experiment to gain deeper understanding of angiogenesis, tumor growth and vascular structure.
