Sam Suptela

Assistant Teaching Professor, BIOL
Science Building 204

I teach Principles of Biology, General Biology II, and Epidemics and Plagues. I also mentor undergraduate research students and coordinate the Anatomy and Physiology labs. I have a BS in Biology and a Ph.D. in Biology from UNC Charlotte (Go Niners!), and a Masters in Public Health from the University of Virginia. I just started my M.Ed. in Learning, Design, and Technology this semester! My field of expertise is immunology and microbiology, and my current research focuses on host responses to bacterial infections of bone and brain cells! Outside of the science lab, I also have current research projects related to equity in STEM education.
