Hello, I'm Eisha Clyde!

Founder and Executive Director of The HBCU STEMulUS.


I established this organization because I noticed that students often lack the guidance they need to achieve their career goals after completing college. While they have a clear vision of what they want to accomplish, they may not know how to get there. As someone who has been in their shoes, I believe I have a duty to help students not only understand their desired career paths but also to help them create a plan of action.

About Eisha

Eisha S. Clyde, MS is a Clinical Immunology Scientist with research experience in HIV-1, SARS-COV-2, and gene therapy. Eisha is a proud HBCU graduate of North Carolina Central University (NCCU), where she received her bachelor’s degree in biology in 2015. Her passion for science and interest in scientific research led to her graduate school career.


As a graduate student at Towson University, Eisha studied the NF-κB cellular signaling pathway in Kaposi’s Sarcoma Associated Herpesvirus (KSHV). She also had the opportunity to teach introductory biology courses to undergraduate students. While in graduate school, Eisha recognized her passion for mentorship. Following the completion of her master’s degree in Biological Sciences in 2018, Eisha began to think of ways to give back to undergraduate students pursuing STEM degrees. 

After much prayer and wise counsel, Eisha created an organization called The HBCU STEMulUS, Inc. Eisha’s journey to becoming a STEM professional has shown her the true reality of life as an African American woman in this field. Because of her journey, she wants to fully equip the next generation with career and professional resources to become successful and innovative STEM professionals.


In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, reading, spending time with family and friends, and meeting new people.
