Dr. Elisabeth Swain reappointed

Dr. Elisabeth Swain, a 1993 PhD from the University of Iowa and Lecturer in Biochemistry since 1996 has been reappointed to the faculty for an additional three year term. Named the UI College of Pharmacy “Non-Pharmacy Teacher of the Year” in 2005, Liz will take primary responsibility for teaching one-semester biochemistry survey courses for first year dental, pharmacy and physician assistant students. She will also offer 99:110, the one-semester introduction to biochemistry for undergraduates in the fall and develop the online version of this course to be offered in the spring. She and Todd Washington are redesigning 99:140, the biochemistry laboratory course, which she will offer next spring. A lecturer par excellence with students in five different colleges (liberal arts & sciences, engineering, dentistry, pharmacy and medicine), she is a true departmental all-star.
