Kerri Carlson



  • Higher Ed: Science 


In the fall of 2009 I will be joining the biology faculty at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN as a clinical professor. Currently I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota where I use the zebrafish as a model to understand human disease and development. While in Minnesota, I have also served as visiting assistant professors at both Hamline University and St. Olaf College. I received my PhD from Duke University focused on human genetics and my BA degrees at Miami University in both microbiology and anthropology.
