Julie Dangremond Stanton, Ph.D., is an associate professor of cellular biology at the University of Georgia. Although she was trained as a cell biologist, Stanton’s passion for helping students learn led her to pursue education research through the ASM Biology Scholars Research Residency during her first faculty position. In her primary research area she investigates the metacognitive development of undergraduate life science students. In addition, Stanton studies the strengths and assets of Black and African American science majors and the self-advocacy experiences of students with learning disabilities and ADHD in STEM. She is the PI of 2 NSF grants for biology education research, including a CAREER award to study metacognition. Through her teaching and research, Stanton is dedicated to helping undergraduates learn and persist in life science majors.
