As Director of the M.S. in Biotechnology Program, I am also pleased that you have come to the Catholic University of America Web site. I understand how important choosing a career path is.  Once you have made that choice, you want to select an institution that gives you the best opportunity to achieve success.

I and the faculty of the Department of Biology stand ready to assist you in making these crucial decisions. Please feel free to contact me directly by e-mail or with a phone call. I will respond quickly to your inquiry and, if I cannot immediately answer your question, I will get the answer for you without fail.

We want you to be clear that our mission at the Catholic University of America is to personally help you attain your objectives. We offer real people and real solutions, not just another nameless site to which you submit a question. My contact information is listed below.

I look forward to welcoming you to the program.
