Meet Our Faculty

The Natural Sciences faculty is dedicated to providing the best educational environment for our students.  All lecture and laboratory classes are taught by faculty, not teaching assistants.  With their supeb teaching skills, the opportunities they offer to conduct original research, and their open-door policy to all MMC students, our professors have but one goal: to provide our students with a solid life-science education that will enable them to pursue fulfilling post-baccalaureate careers.
