Teaching

Teaching - classroomProf. Steve Alexander taught General Biology, Developmental Biology, Human Genetic Diseases, Basic Cell BiologyAdvanced Cell Biology, and Cancer Biology (co-taught with Prof. Mark Hannink). He also has  given many talks to lay audiences on the topics of cancer and cancer research.

Dr. Hannah Alexander designed and taught a graduate-level course Science Outreach: Public Understanding of Science. Students generate a series of lay-language presentations about different science related issues, emphasizing the role of basic scientific research in these issues. After extensive refinements, the presentations are delivered to adult audiences in the community as part of series titled Science and Me. The program was initiated in 2008 at MU as a graduate level course and is currently also offered as an undergraduate course at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. The emphasis of the course is to train students to communicate science to lay adult audiences. The program was featured in the December 2011 issue of ASBMB Today.
