Welcome Back from the Department of Biology!
We hope you are looking forward to a stimulating and exciting academic year. Our department has been busy this summer hiring new faculty, staff and graduate assistants who we are confident will enhance your educational experiences.
At the staff level, our lab manager, Josephine Mose retired after almost 40 years of experience. She will be missed. Jo has been replaced by Ms. Bonnie Madden who, among many duties, will be preparing all of the microbiology laboratories.
New full-time faculty for the 2015-16 academic year
Dr. Alexandra Masterson, who has been teaching for us for a number of years as an adjunct, will be teaching Human Anatomy and Physiology at the 100-, 400-, and graduate levels. Dr. Masterson earned her BA Degree in Biology from California State University in Fresno, her Master of Science Degree in Education from Old Dominion University, and a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree from the University of the Pacific.
Dr. Anne Scherer will be teaching BIOL 311: General Genetics on both the Fairfax and Prince William campuses. She comes to us after several years of teaching at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN. Dr. Scherer earned her B.S. in Biology at Purdue University, her M.S. in Biology from the University of North Dakota, and her Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from Indiana University.
Dr. Boris Sorkin will be teaching Human Anatomy and Physiology at both the Fairfax and Prince William campuses. He comes to us after many years of teaching, most recently at Queensborough Community College. He received his B.A. in Biology at New York University and his Ph.D. in Biology from Northern Illinois University.
