Hi! My name is Melissa Elliott. I graduated from Wichita State University in 2000 with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. I recently finished work on my Master's in Science from St. Joseph College in West Hartford, CT. I teach Microbiology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Chemistry Review for Biology Students. I am also involved in developing the Forensic Science Program here at Butler.
My Master's research included a study of the frequencey of MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus) carriers in Sedgwick County Emergency Medical Service personnel. My other research interests include the effects of E. coli 0157:H7 entertoxin on epithelial cells.
