Valerie Logan Hood

Valerie Logan Leadership in Science Education Award

Throughout her career, Valerie Logan Hood served as a visionary and active leader in science education. When Valerie and her husband, Dr. Lee Hood, moved to Seattle in 1992, they brought with them a passion and commitment for science education.

When Lee co-founded the Institute for Systems Biology in 2000, he maintained his commitment to education. Valerie’s leadership helped to establish ISB’s commitment to education and a vision that all students should have an opportunity to learn science.

While Valerie has stepped down from leading ISB’s education and outreach programs, she continues to inspire our work. Recognizing her leadership, ISB celebrates her impact by identifying an educator in the community as recipient of the Valerie Logan Leadership in Science Education Award. The 2021 recipient will be announced during the event.
