It is my intention to train undergraduates in basic laboratory research and to teach portions of the Biomedical Science core curriculum. Student research experiences focus on learning Th cell culture techniques and Th cell-mediated over-active immune response animal science models. Students are encouraged to design experiments, utilize current literature and execute appropriate controls while in training. Promising projects are published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at national conferences. While teaching undergraduates, their coursework is complied of Intro to Pharmacology, focusing on drug design and drug mechanism of action; along with Molecular Basis of Human Genomics, focusing on the genetic origins of human disease, personalized medicine, usage of public bioinformatic databases/software and genetic laboratory techniques.
