Dr. Sandhya Das
Biomedical Science and AP Biology Teacher
I have been teaching sophomores, juniors and seniors at Ball High since 2014. I enjoy teaching the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) curriculum as well as the AP Biology course immensely. My mission is to prepare my students to be critical thinkers, use logical reasoning, be creative, become involved citizens and outstanding future biomedical professionals. I graduated from Mumbai University with a PhD in Life Sciences. Before I started teaching, I was a biomedical scientist and have to my credit over a dozen peer-reviewed publications with more than 500 citations in cancer genetics, drug discovery, pharmacology & toxicology, chemokine biology, inflammation, asthma, COPD and epigenetics. My advice to students would be- “Don’t Decide You Can’t Before You Discover That You Can”. As a high school teacher, I am extremely interested in biology education and outreach among general public. In my spare time, I enjoy bird watching, hiking, painting, and going on long road trips with my husband.
