Faculty Spotlight

Faculty Members Making a Difference: Newsletter Standouts

  • Background and experience in the field of Biology:
    “I got my undergraduate degree from North Carolina State University, the final 4 in NCAA the first time since 1983! Then I went to Vanderbilt and got my PhD in pharmacology. I did research on indigenous signals such as growth and transcriptional factors and how it affected the development of the heart and blood vessels. Then continued that work as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Unviersity of Chicago prior to working here.”
  • Extracurriculars or research that I am currently doing on campus:
    “I am working on a study in my Bio101 class in which I am studying team-based learning, a type of application of collaborative learning. This is not just working together but across teams as well.”
  • Advice I would give to students pursuing a degree or career in Biology:
    “Go to class! Since the Pandemic we realize that there are many of things we do not have to in person for but learning is not one of them. Due to so much of our learning being experimentally and with mentorship.
  • Perspectives and experiences that I would like to share about being within the biology department:
    “Maybe I am biased but I believe that I have the best students. I love all of my students biology majors or not but I just have a special warm feeling for my biology students because I see how hard they work and how many of them achieve such great success. Also, my colleagues have been working so cohesively which I believe leaves a good impact on the students.
