Richard D. Bungiro Senior Lecturer in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology

I received my B.A. in Biology from Johns Hopkins 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 multiple courses and as a Graduate Teaching Fellow with the Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning. After completing my graduate work I instructed BIOL 0530 (Principles of Immunology) and BIOL 0540 (Biology of Emerging Microbial Diseases, now BIOL 1550), 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 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.
