Jordan received his B.S. in Molecular Biology from Ohio Northern University.  During this time he worked as an undergraduate research intern in the microbiology laboratories of the Aerosol Science division of Battelle Memorial Institute.  He obtained his Ph.D. from the Integrated Biomedical Science Graduate Program at The Ohio State University.  Under the direction of Dr. Dawn S. Chandler he characterized the mouse Smn gene and developing a knock-in Smn C>T mouse modal of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).  Upon graduation, he joined the laboratory of Dr. Mani Mahadevan at the University of Virginia as a postdoctoral research associate, where he studied the molecular mechanism underlying myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1).

He provides key coordination and support for the NINDS/NIH Alzheimer's Disease-Related Dementias (ADRD) extramural research program. The NINDS ADRD program is responsive to the National Plan to Address Alzheimer's disease and includes research on the Alzheimer's-related dementias as defined by the National Plan (frontotemporal, Lewy body, vascular and mixed dementias).
