I find it fascinating that something so small you cannot see them with the unaided eye, can either kill us or make it possible for us to live on this Earth. Sharing this passion with freshmen in FLC609 is one of my favorite activities!

I'm interested in teaching the Biology of Toxins FLC because I think it's important for students to have reading and writing assignments that can relate to things that are important in their lives, some of which we will discuss in this FLC such as the workings of the drug industry and issues surrounding drug addiction.
