ABOUT AIMEE

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Immunology and Microbiology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus (CU AMC). I completed my PhD in Immunology at the University of Rochester studying the developmental regulation of autoreactive B cells in humans with the autoimmune disease Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) and furthered my training in 2 post-doctoral fellowships. Since 2007, I have been dedicated to teaching, and currently teach immunology to a variety of professional students on the CU AMC. My current research interests focus on medical education, science communication, and community outreach science education.

As a dedicated educator, I developed a 'Teacher Training Program' for trainees at the CU AMC to fill a gap in teacher training and provide trainees with an opportunity to work alongside a passionate educator (me!) willing to guide others toward best practices in all elements of teaching.

As the Director of the CU AMC Foundational Science Departments Science Communication Program and the co-Director for the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences and Innovation (CCTSI) 'Communicating Your Science to the Public' Project, I aim to bridge the gap between academic research and the community. 

In 2018, I founded a non-profit community outreach program, Think Like a Scientist (TLaS), that partners with elementary schools surrounding the CU AMC that serve primarily historically underrepresented groups (HUGs) in STEM.

As the Assistant Director of the CU Human Immunology and Immunotherapy Initiative (HI3), we aim to establish preeminence in human immune system-targeted therapies on the CU AMC through the development and maintenence of an all-inclusive facility that provides experimental models for the preclinical testing of new candidate therapeutics, reliable immunotherapeutic production, consistent clinical trials research support, and human immune monitoring capabilities.
