Jessica McCready 
Assistant Professor of Biology
Assumption College
Worcester, MA
TEACRS Alumna - 2012





I joined TEACRS after completing my PhD in Anatomy & Neurobiology at Virginia Commonwealth University. I conducted my research with Charlotte Kuperwasser, PhD, Associate Professor of Anatomy & Cellular Biology.

My research centered on the relationship between tissue remodeling during pregnancy and breast cancer metastasis. I worked to achieve a better understanding of breast cancer metastasis that will lead to better treatments for the disease.

As part of the TEACRS program, I taught undergraduate General Biology at Bunker Hill Community College and Problem Based Learning for first year Tufts medical students.

I plan to continue my research as well as develop as a teacher in my new position. I am the liaison with TEACRS in their initiative to place minority students from Assumption in summer research internships at Tufts.
