Walter Harrington, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Hello there! My name is Walter, and I am a researcher at St. Jude currently studying the influenza virus. I successfully defended my doctoral work in August 2019 from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences on targeted photoacoustic diagnostics for blood stream infections. I have a passion for knowledge and seek deeper understanding in all areas of life. My hobbies include reading, woodworking, writing and meaningful discussion. My wife and I currently live in Memphis, TN with our son Hank. Most importantly, I am a child of God, disciple of the Christ and servant of the King.

Faith, science and more:
