Dr. Wendy Trzyna,

Associate Professor, Department of Biological Sciences

Dr. Wendy Trzyna is a microbiologist in the Department of Biological Sciences. Her research interests include investigating how Acanthamoeba, a single celled eukaryotic microbe, sense and respond at the molecular level to stress in the environment. Of particular interest are specific genes and signaling pathways involved in stress responses as well as whole genome analyses of amoebae from diverse environments. She currently teaches Microbial Genetics.
