Stevenson University is a partner school in the Collaborative Teaching Fellows Program. This program places graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland in classrooms in order to give them training and mentoring in teaching. This semester two teaching fellows will be on campus.

Dr. Sunny Sun, a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Kathryn Wagner’s lab and Dr. Gabsang Lee’s lab at Kennedy Kreiger Institute, will be working with Dr. Lorie Lana in her Virology class. Dr. Sun, originally from China, completed her PhD at the University of Southampton, England, and one postdoctoral fellowship at King’s College in London. Her current research focuses on improving the efficiency of muscle stem cell transplantation therapy in order to cure Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Dr. Marcos Iglesias is a Spanish postdoctoral researcher working in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Department at Johns Hopkins University. He received his degree in Veterinarian Medicine at the University of Leon (Spain) and a PhD in Biomedicine at the University of Santander (Spain). His postdoctoral fellowship is in Immunology, focusing on understanding alterations leading to the development of autoimmune diseases and rejection/tolerance in transplantation. The ultimate goal would be finding new targets of intervention to help improve the quality of life from people suffering any of these problems. Dr. Iglesias will be working with Dr. Rebecca Burgess in her Cell Biology class.

Welcome to Stevenson University Dr. Sun and Dr. Iglesias!
