BIOGRAPHY:
Beth has been at CNF helping with biology-related projects since 2008. She trains on biology-related tools and connects life sciences researchers at the CNF. Beth also coordinates the CNF Ambassador Program and the Youth Education & Outreach Program. She designs hands-on activities for students of all ages, trains CNF Ambassadors to help with the outreach activities, and assesses the impact of the E & O Program.

Before joining the CNF, Beth performed research in the field of immunology & microbiology. Beth worked with the pathogen, Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Beth’s specific areas of expertise include: Microfluidic Design and Testing, Microfluidic Master Mold Fabrication, SU-8 Processing, PDMS Processing, Parylene Deposition, 3D Printing, Laser cutting, Light Microscopy, Contact Profilometry, Science Communication, Teaching K-12, Teaching in Higher Education, Mouse Handling, Mouse Study Design and Execution, Sterile Technique, Primary Cell Culture, Immune Cell Manipulation, Immunoassays (ELISA, etc.), Lipid Chromatography, Flow Cytometry, Bacterial Culture and Biosafety Level-3 work.

In her time outside of the CNF, Beth is an adjunct instructor for Cornell University, a Master Gardener for Tompkins county, and a mother of a 4-H’er and a Tiger Scout….so she can explain the major histocompatibility complex, grow towers filled with potatoes, build a campfire or bottle rocket launcher, recite the 49 ARBA-recognized breeds of show rabbits, and build a rabbit hutch from spare vacuum pump crates.
