Dr. Kiara Eldred grew up in Seattle, Washington where she received her BS in Biochemistry from the University of Washington. She then went on to earn a PhD from the Department of Biology at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. During her work at Johns Hopkins in the Lab of Dr. Robert Johnston, Dr. Eldred was awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and was a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Gilliam Fellow for Advanced Study. For her PhD thesis, Dr. Eldred was awarded the Stephen and Carolyn Oppenheimer Graduate Thesis Award from the Johns Hopkins Biology Department and the Harold M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Now, Dr. Eldred is working on understanding the mechanisms of retinoblastoma tumor formation in the lab of Dr. Thomas Reh at the University of Washington School of Medicine and has been awarded the Damon Runyon-Sohn Pediatric Cancer Postdoctoral Fellowship. In addition to her scientific research, Dr. Eldred has been heavily involved in environmental and scientific education. What she values most from her volunteer experiences has been the chance to instill excitement for science in both youth and adults. Her long-term goal is to become a professor at a research institution investigating mechanisms of tumorigenesis and organism development while engaging youth in science, creating a more sustainable laboratory environment, and expanding the diversity of individuals dedicated to scientific research. Outside of the lab, Dr. Eldred enjoys rock climbing, hiking, fire spinning, gardening, and crafting.
