Mark D. Lazzaro - Teaching

As a plant cell biologist, I routinely teach teach cell biology lectures and labs (BIOL 313) to primarily juniors and seniors and introductory cellular and molecular biology lectures for majors (BIOL 111) to freshmen. I also teach the Honors College version of this introductory course (HONS 151). I expect students in both courses to come to class prepared, work hard and study. I use a combination of powerpoint slides and a chalk board. Exams are challenging and require critical thinking. Course websites are maintained on OAKS.  Please email me if you would like a sample syllabus.

Current Teaching

Fall 2018: BIOL 111 lecture, HONS 151 lecture

Spring 2019: BIOL 313 lecture and 3 lab sections

Other courses

I mentor undergraduates in my research lab (BIOL 450, 451, 499). I have supervised students taking biology seminar (BIOL 452) and supervised tutorials (BIOL 399) on plant biochemistry and on protein structure and function. I have also served as a paper supervisor for students conducing research outside the Biology Department, for example at MUSC.
