Dr. Lauer will be teaching General Biology, Biochemistry, and Genetics in the School of STEM. After completing her Ph.D. in Biology in 2018 at New York University, she taught a course-based undergraduate research experience (CURE) in Synthetic Biology while performing research in the same field at NYU Langone. Her research focuses on genome rearrangements in the budding yeast, where she uses cutting-edge techniques like CRISPR to perform genetic engineering. Dr. Lauer is particularly looking forward to continuing these projects with students at STAC! Outside of the lab, she enjoys doing yoga, reading (especially science fiction), and going to the beach.
