Alaron Lewis, Associate Teaching Professor


Location: INV-240L
Phone: 425-352-3723


Dr. Lewis received her Ph.D. in cell biology from the Yale University in 2007. While there she studied post-translational modification in yeast. Prior to coming to UW Bothell, she was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Washington Seattle where she worked on a project examining the development of zebrafish vision. Dr. Lewis has taught at UWB since 2011. She teaches a variety of Cell and Molecular Biology courses at UWB.

Teaching: My teaching focus is to provide students with a core of fundamental principles, such as biological signaling, to assist them in learning how to apply these principles to specific systems, and to show them how to then expand into other systems. I help them develop the skills to find and read the primary literature and create with them an understanding of how the fundamental principles and different scientific disciplines build into an organized interconnected theory of cell biology.
