Merideth Krevosky received her B.S. in Biology from Saint Mary's College in Notre Dame, Indiana, and her Ph. D. from Loyola University in Chicago, Illinois. Following graduate school, she completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship studying the biology of breast cancer in Northwestern University in Chicago. She joined the faculty of Bridgewater State University in the fall of 2002 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences. Her responsibilities include teaching Human Anatomy and Physiology (lecture and laboratory) as well as the introductory Biology laboratory course. She also serves as the Pre-Medical advisor to those BSUstudents interested in Medical School. Additional courses include Animal Physiology (lecture and laboratory) as well as other upper level Biology courses.
Dr. Krevosky's research interests focus on the study of programmed cell death, or apoptosis, of cancer cells. Many cancer cells acquire genetic mutations or express proteins that prevent cell death following therapeutic intervention (chemotherapy, irradiation). The study of the basic mechanisms of cancer cell death may lead to the identification of novel targets for the treatment of cancer. Dr. Krevosky looks forward to the opportunity to work with BSU undergraduates to introduce them to cellular and molecular biology techniques used in cancer research. Knowledge of cellular and molecular biology will enable BSU students to become well-rounded and successful scientific researchers at the undergraduate level.
