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.
Fall 2018: BIOL 111 lecture, HONS 151
Spring 2019: BIOL 313 lecture and 3 lab
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.
