Science Careers in Nonprofits

Kelley Remole, Ph.D.,

is the Director of Neuroscience Outreach in the Department of Neuroscience at Columbia University. She completed her doctorate at Columbia in 2011 in the laboratory of Holly Moore, where she investigated the structure and function of the hippocampus in a rodent model of schizophrenia. While she was a graduate student, she started a volunteer group to place scientists (students, research assistants, and postdocs) in local K-12 classrooms to teach kids about the brain. This group, now named Columbia University Neuroscience Outreach, reaches over 1000 New York City children annually through one-day and multi-day visits. Since 2010 she has worked part time as the Brain Specialist in the education department at the American Museum of Natural History where she designs and teaches classes about the brain. She has also worked at the New York Academy of Sciences.
