Lisa Hines is an associate professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. In 2017, she became the Co-Director for the UCCSTeach Program. Although her formal training is in the area of epidemiology, her research interests took a new direction with impetus from the 2009 Vision & Change (V & C) report, which represents the collective wisdom of leaders in biology education with the common goal of improving undergraduate biology education. With support from the National Science Foundation, she led efforts to evaluate the short-term benefits of a research-based curricular transformation on student learning and perception. Her research interests have expanded to include K-12 STEM education. She received a Fulbright Scholar Award (2017) to travel to Bangkok, Thailand in order to learn about STEM education in Southeast Asia. Prior to joining the UCCS faculty in 2007, she was a researcher at the Colorado School of Public Health, where she was involved in epidemiologic research to investigate factors that contribute to ethnic/racial disparities in breast cancer.
