Dr Phyllis Freeman is Associate Professor of Biology and Curriculum Coordinator of Biology in the Department of Life and Physical Sciences at Fisk University. Her teaching efforts include interdisciplinary exposure to the sciences and humanities in the core undergraduate curriculum, and in advanced courses in cell biology and genetics. Her efforts also include mentoring undergraduate research in the sciences. Dr. Freeman’s doctoral research focused on the trypanosome parasite endemic to sub-Saharan Africa and South America, Trypanosomacruzi. Her interest in microbial pathogenesis extends to her current interests in understanding the viral and other microbial underpinnings of various forms of cancer.
As a recipient of the Bush-Hewlett Award from the American Council on Education, Dr Freeman has participated at the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, in a focused externship on assessment of academic programs and university governance.
