Associate Director HBC Training
Mary serves dual roles in the Core as research consultant and bioinformatics trainer, but her primary role is the development and instruction of bioinformatics workshops focused on the analysis of next-generation sequencing data. Her background in scientific curriculum design and instruction began at the University of Michigan, where she taught undergraduates for over five years while completing her PhD in cellular and molecular biology and her MPH in epidemiology. She combined her passions for scientific research and teaching at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard as the genomics instructor for MIT’s Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science program where her course focused on cutting-edge biomedical research and bioinformatics analysis. Her exposure to the research at the Broad Institute, MIT, and Harvard, led to her desire to pursue bioinformatics as a career and to share that knowledge with the community.
