NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH FELLOW AND LCCC GRAD TO GIVE FREE PRESENTATION ON CAREERS IN BIOSAFETY AND BIODEFENSE

Jarrad Marles, Ph.D., a 2002 Lorain County Community College graduate who is currently serving a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, will give a free presentation on careers in biosafety and biodefense.

The presentation is at 11 a.m., Tuesday, September 3 in room 101 of LCCC’s Patsie C. Campana building.

The presentation – titled “From Humble Beginnings: One LCCC Graduate’s Path to an Exciting Science Career” – will include Marles’ path from LCCC to his current position at the National Institutes of Health.

“I'll discuss my progression from a community college through graduate school to a career in biosafety and biodefense, including some information about what graduate school is like.” Marles said. “I don’t think most students have an idea of what those careers involve or that they may even be a possibility.”

Marles, who graduated from the now closed Elyria West High School, earned an associate of science degree from LCCC in 2002, a bachelor of science in biology with a specialization in microbiology from the University of Akron in 2005, and a doctorate in Microbiology and Immunology from Dartmouth College in 2011.  He is in the National Biosafety and Biocontainment Training Program at the National Institutes of Health.

He is also a veteran having served in the United States Army (1996-98, 2003) and U.S. Army National Guard (1998-2002, 2004).

This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, call 440-366-7254.
