  1. Thomas Glynn

    I signed up for the class with no real background in cell culturing or much of a microbiology laboratory background. After the class, I really enjoyed the techniques taught and would actually want to pursue a career more in line with a cell culturing discipline. It definietly gave me a step up in my resume as well as employers have definietly taken notice that I have a rudimentary background in cell culturing techniques and now I have a great job in a big biotech company and I just got out of college 8 months ago. Dr. Fox is a fantastic teacher who really explains the material in digestible chunks. The lab portions take up a good portion of your time to and should teach you all the essential techniques. Dr. Fox is always helpful and willing to ask as many questions as possible. Her lectures are also interesting and provide a great introduction into what lab work you’ll be doing that day. I’d recommend this to anyone who wants to boost their resume up and learn some additional skills that’ll be valued in the biological science job market.
