Richard D. Bungiro Senior Lecturer in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology

I received my B.A. in Biology from the Johns Hopkins University in 1992 and my Ph.D. in Pathobiology from Brown in 1999. As a graduate student I worked with Professor Emeritus Paul Knopf on immune responses to the parasitic blood fluke Schistosoma mansoni. I also served as a teaching assistant for BIOL 0530: Principles of Immunology, BIOL 0200: Foundations of Living Systems and BIOL 0540: Biology of Emerging Microbial Diseases (now BIOL 1550), and as a Graduate Teaching Fellow with the Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning. After completing my graduate work I instructed BIOL 0530 and BIOL 0540, then joined the research group of Michael Cappello '84 at the Yale University School of Medicine where I worked on bloodfeeding hookworms. In 2008 I returned to Brown as a faculty member in the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology. As a Senior Lecturer in Biology I have taught BIOL 0530, BIOL 1600 (Development of Vaccines to Infectious Diseases), BIOL 1550 and the laboratory for BIOL 0510 (Introductory Microbiology). I also serve as a first-year advisor, as a Faculty Advising Fellow advisor and concentration advisor for Biology programs.
