She also has experience with utilizing analytical instrumentation and digital teaching technologies including data-mining resources and more. Ms. Lazebnik is involved in research focused on undergraduate STEM education and developing innovative course content to work hand-in-hand with the curriculum, in particular with a project at Boston’s Museum of Science. Ms. Lazebnik received her BS in Neuroscience and Biology as well as her MS in Cell and Molecular Biology from Brandeis University. Later, she received her PhD in Genetics from the Tufts University School of Medicine. In addition, she has extensive research experience including working as a research fellow at NIH, research associate at Brandeis and Tufts, and a postdoctoral fellow at Tufts Molecular Oncology Research Institute. Finally, Ms. Lazebnik is a multi-published educator and research scientist. She has had three articles published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
‘I really enjoyed the program and my teacher. I learned a lot during the program like how difficult it is to get a drug passed by the FDA or to even make a drug that works with no side effects…I also learned what a successful Biotech company needs like marketing and money.
‘I liked the demonstrations and hands-on experiments.The field trip was also fun. The teacher was very good and organized, but she still let us be independent for research and didn’t control our debate as a class (which is a good thing)’
‘I liked how we learned about the industry of biotechnology and the different roles that are played there. I also liked how we observed drug discovery and the process which surrounds it.’
