"She Can Change The World"

Dr. Adrienne Starks founded STREAM Innovations, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit in Birmingham.  Under her leadership, their mission has been committed to helping students develop and explore their passion in Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STREAM) by providing exposure, experiences, and engagement with high expectations for their success. STREAM Innovations promotes collaborative innovation to engage students in their desired STREAM discipline(s) and innovate solutions to real world problems in their communities.

Dr. Starks received a BS in Biology from Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical University (AAMU) and a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC).  She studied human variation in disease in her postdoctoral fellowship National Institutes of Health (NIH) at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). There she focused on cancer disparities between African Americans and European Americans.

In 2019, Dr. Starks was selected as one of the 125 AAAS IF/THEN Ambassadors, which is a national initiative to increase in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) exposure for girls by celebrating women STEM as role models of success.
