I am a member of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
I am a past Northeast Coordinator for the Undergraduate Affiliates Network (UAN) of the ASBMB. Students interested in becoming members of the UAN may visit the web site or contact a faculty member at their home institution.
I am on the Editorial Board for the journal Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education (BAMBED). Authors who wish to submit an article to BAMBED may visit the journal's web page.
I am a past member of the Board of Directors of the Eastern Colleges Science Conference (ECSC), an undergraduate research conference that has been held in the northeast continously since its founding in 1947. Students in the northeast who are interested in attending this conference may visit the ECSC web site.
Providece College was recently chosen to be a member of the fourth cohort of HHMI's Science Education Alliance's Phage Hunters program. This is a research-based biology course taught to freshman biochemistry and biology students. My teacher partner in this endeavor is Nicanor Austriaco, OP, PhD. If you'd like to see what we've been up to, you can follow our blog.
During the summer of 2012, I, along with 14 other faculty members from around the country, was chosen to participate in an Interdisciplinary Faculty Seminar sponsored by CIEE. The focus of the seminar was the "Slow Food" movement, food culture and sustainable methods of food production. If you'd like to read more, please see the blog that I kept during my trip. I continue to add information about the Slow Food movement to the blog.
