I manage the Principles of Microbiology and Microbiology labs. I supervise the Teaching Assistants for those courses, manage the Micro Prep student workers, and maintain the Biosafety Level 2 prep room, autoclave room, and labs. My team creates media for Microbiology and Clinical Laboratory Sciences courses and maintains a culture collection of biosafety level one and biosafety level two organisms for use in the teaching labs. The state-of-the-art suite itself hosts the micro classes as well as other courses at the graduate level.
