BU BioScience Academy Graduates 15
When Jesse Logan applied for a certificate program in applied biotechnology at BU’s BioScience Academy (BSA), she was at loose ends professionally. She’d suffered what she calls an early career “breakup with science” after a job she had taken proved to be a terrible fit. She then earned a master’s degree in journalism and spent a decade working as a copywriter, production assistant, and associate producer at public radio stations, including WGBH and WBUR, but her ambitions were dampened by a shrinking job market. After being accepted into the BSA program, Logan found a group of people of varying ages, origins, and life circumstances, all of them, like her, in flux. But they had a common goal: a stimulating career in the thriving field of biotechnology. Having just completed the one-year program, Logan is now working full-time at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, where she is regulatory coordinator for breast oncology clinical research studies.
