Tamara Lambert started a Podcast Highlighting Women in STEM, with a focus on women start-ups called Uplift HERstory.
She is a biomedical engineer with a Master’s Degree in Public Health from Emory University and a Master’s degree in Bioengineering from UIUC. She is currently pursuing her doctorate in biomedical engineering, a joint degree between Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University.
As a teenager, Tamara was inspired to pursue a bioengineering degree after witnessing several of her family members suffer from chronic health conditions. A series of events strengthened Tamara’s resolve to develop technology for limited resource communities, including witnessing the health care challenges faced by low-income individuals while on mission trips to Nicaragua and India, as well as having both of her parents pass away due to preventable and treatable illnesses.
Her awards include:
*Inducted into Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society in 2019
*Author on 7 peer-reviewed publications including one first author publication
*Won several Micro grants
*Tech Female Founders Award, the Hatchery Incubator Summer and Fall Award
*NIA Start-Up Challenge Finalist
*Accepted into All Raise, Georgia Tech's Start-Up Launch
Tamara is passionate about expanding access to quality healthcare technology and supporting minority and female founders in the STEM fields.
