Submitted by Kris Boone,

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Carri Gerber, currently interim assistant director for academic affairs, is getting a more concise title. Specifically, we are now able to remove “interim.” I’m very grateful that Dr. Gerber as agree to serve in this capacity. 

Dr. Gerber is associate professor and was coordinator of the biochemical sciences and environment and natural resources programs. She joined the faculty in 2006. At ATI she has taught courses in biology, ecology, biochemistry, statistics for research technicians, laboratory analysis, and chromatography. She advised students majoring in biochemical sciences with specializations in biology, food science, and pre-veterinary medicine, as well as students majoring in environment and natural resources with specializations in environmental science and natural resource management. Dr. Gerber received the 2017 Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award.

Prior to joining the faculty at ATI, Dr. Gerber was on the faculty of Axia College of Western International University, where she was an online facilitator for distance education courses. She also served as a postdoctoral researcher at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation’s Department of Cell Biology, where she conducted research on selenoprotein biosynthesis and guided the research of undergraduate students. Her area of expertise is molecular genetics, and her research has been published in such journals as Methods of Molecular Biology, Cell, and Genetics.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Gerber in this new capacity
