Jade Zee
Northeastern University

Jade directs one of the largest undergraduate programs in behavioral neuroscience. Her research expertise is reflected in the courses that she teaches: behavioral endocrinology, animal behavior and neurobiology. As President for Nu Rho Psi, the national honor society in neuroscience, and as a Councilor for Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience, she strives to enhance and promote excellence in neuroscience at the undergraduate-level. Jade has returned to MBL each summer for the scientific culture, camaraderie and popovers, and is a former Grass Fellow and Associate Director for the Grass Lab (2010-13). As course manager, she utilizes her knowledge of MBL resources and diverse experimental setups along with her vendor relations to optimize course logistics.

Jade was an NS&B student in 1998 and TA from 1999-2004. She has been Course Manager since 2014.
