  • Amanda Marie James, Ph.D.

    Assistant Dean, Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement | Emory University, Laney Graduate School

    I have a broad background in clinical technology (pharmacological and application-based) & biomedical engineering, with specific expertise in detection of clinical samples & method development. In addition to advancements in my bench work, I have been informally & formally trained in minority science outreach, the importance of science education, & mentoring. As a scientific mentor, course facilitator, & minority outreach advocate & coordinator, I have worked on developing an environment which fosters scientific advancements while providing the needed resources for ALL learners to be successful. I coordinated the online portion of Emory’s pre-freshman program, which targeted biomedical science students and provides additional guidance during their matriculation at Emory. I also have had the privilege over the past 2 year to be part of the IMSD executive team. This experience has afforded me to be advised by experts on mentoring & diversity in science while also actively changing the landscape & demographics of biomedical students in Emory undergraduate & graduate programs.
