About Me

Dr. Cherie Ramirez is a contract faculty member in the Chemistry and Physics Department, where one of her responsibilities is to teach an introductory biochemistry course for public health majors. She is also the inaugural STEM faculty fellow at the CET. Her love of teaching and science blossomed when she was a Biochemistry/Molecular Biology and Classical Studies double major at Rollins College in Central Florida. With the goal of being involved in teaching full-time someday, she participated in several teaching and mentoring activities throughout graduate school while earning her PhD in genetics at Harvard studying site-specific nucleases and their applications in genome engineering. After graduating in 2012, she completed her post-doctoral training at the Harvard School of Public Health with a dual appointment as a Curriculum Fellow at the Harvard Global Health Institute so that she could support faculty and graduate students teaching global health across Harvard University. After her post-doc, she was promoted to be the Deputy Director of the global learning studios at the newly established Global Health Education and Learning Incubator at Harvard University, where she developed strategies and capacities for supporting faculty experimenting with educational multimedia
