Dr.Laurie Elder

Today. October 2, 2014, SCACM and the field of Microbiology lost an incredible friend, advocate, and educator - Laurie Elder, Ph.D..

Her sister, Nancy stated that "Laurie was an esteemed teacher, researcher, laboratory clinician and IRB chair at Wright State University She was also an Elder at Sugarcreek Presbyterian Church and vice-moderator of the Presbytery of the Miami Valley. She was a singer who never stopped, in choir, at home and even with her students (bugs and germs via original songs by Laurie) Most importantly, she was beloved of God, and she is now Home from her wandering."

May her memory live on through each of us as we continue our SCACM mission of education. Laurie was a fantastic teacher and we are happy that she was able to have the experience of a lifetime in the form of a four month sabbatical in Cambodia via ASM.
