Amanda Field

Association of American Medical Colleges
Amanda Field earned her PhD in molecular and cellular biology at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her doctorate work focused on the transcription factor network in the fruit fly, giving insight into how transcription factors guide embryonic development. During her doctorate, Amanda volunteered at several organizations, including University of Maryland senate committees, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, and the nonprofit Women in Bio, in order to improve her community, communicate science to the public, and gain policy experience. After graduating, she performed postdoctoral research on the epigenetic landscape of the fly embryo at Stockholm University. Then her interest in science policy led her to apply for the National Academy of Sciences Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship, where in early 2017 she worked with the Board of Life Science on issues in biodefense and with the Board on Higher Education and Workforce to help create policies to support early career researchers. Amanda is now continuing her work supporting biomedical researchers at academic medical institutions as a Science Policy Specialist at the Association of American Medical Colleges, where she mainly works with two constituent groups on research and research training issues, such as sexual harassment, supporting the next generation of researchers, mentoring, professional development, diversity and inclusion, and foreign government influences in research.
