Jacqueline S. Miller is Principal Investigator on three National Science Foundation (NSF)–funded projects:
- Foundation Science: A Comprehensive High-School Science Curriculum, which has developed curricula for introductory courses in physics, chemistry, biology, and earth science for grades 9–12;
- Electronic Teacher Guide: Its Development and Use in Supporting Educative Curricula, which is developing a prototype digital teacher guide using the genetics unit of Foundation Science; and
- Taking Foundation Science to Scale Digitally project, which supports working with a publisher to transform Foundation Science: Biology and Chemistry print materials to the digital environment
She is co-PI of the DR–K12 Learning Resource Network, CADRE, and of the Universal Design of Inquiry-Based Middle and High School Science Curriculum, which is designing a Web-based prototype for science instructional materials focused on learning-disabled students. She was co-PI on a National Institutes of Health (NIH)–funded curriculum project to develop instructional materials for teaching bioethics in high school biology classrooms and as PI and lead writer in the development of Insights in Biology, an NSF-funded introductory biology curriculum for high school.
She served on the Mathematics and Science Education Advisory Council for the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and was a member of the Steering Committee for the NAEP Science Framework in 2009.
Before joining EDC, Miller was an instructor in the Department of Biological Chemistry at Harvard Medical School, where she carried out research on the molecular biology of tumor viruses and parasites and taught courses in virology, parasitology, and the molecular basis of disease. As a Senior Scientist at Matritech, Inc., a small biotechnology company, she directed research on human papilloma virus and cervical cancer.
She received a BA and MA in biology from Wellesley College and a PhD in oncology from the University of Wisconsin, and she was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and Brandeis University.
