Academics


Department of Basic and Clinical Sciences

The Department of Basic and Clinical Sciences is composed of faculty from a variety of scientific backgrounds that encompasses the physical, biological, and mathematical sciences. Common to all is a passion for their discipline and a desire to share their knowledge with the students they teach.

Infectious disease research in the department focuses on host-pathogen interactions with special emphasis on tularemia, HIV, and influenza. Other areas of interest include investigating cell death pathways and antibiotic resistance.

Medicinal chemistry research in the department integrates synthetic organic chemistry, pharmaceutical formulation and stability, and biochemical assays to identify and synthesize molecular probes of novel drug targets and of new therapeutic agents.

The Department supports the bachelor’s degree programs in Biomedical Technology, Clinical Laboratory Sciences, and Microbiology (in addition to the minor in Mathematics). It also supports master’s degree programs in Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Cytotechnology & Molecular Cytology, and Molecular Biosciences.
