MS Trainers

The MS faculty trainers listed in the table below have demonstrated an interest in participating in the Bacteriology MS program and can serve as research mentors for research-track students. There are many additional microbiologists on campus who could serve as research mentors. A student interested in having an outside faculty member (i.e. one not listed in the table below) serve as research mentor must petition the MS advisory committee for approval of trainer status prior to initiating graduate work.

Are you a faculty member interested in becoming a trainer in the Bacteriology MS program? Information about expectations for trainers can be found here, and the trainer application form can be found here.
