  • Smith Lab '05

  • Assoc. Professor, University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine

I entered the Dartmouth MCB program in 2000 and graduated in 2005 with my PhD from the lab of Dr. Elizabeth Smith in Biological Sciences. I then moved two buildings away to my postdoctoral training in the lab of Dr. Deb Hogan in Microbiology & Immunology. My time in the MCB program, including excellent classes, a great journal club culture, and fellow grad students that simultaneously supported and pushed me, was instrumental in helping me develop into the scientist I am now. Currently, I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Microbiology & Molecular Genetics at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine and my lab investigates how opportunistic bacteria make the transition from their environmental sources into the human lung, work that is currently funded by the NIH, NASA, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
