Dr. Carrico received a PhD from the University at Albany, State University of New York (SUNY) in Molecular Genetics where she focused on the regulation of gene expression in S. cerevisiae. As a postdoctoral fellow at Albany Medical College her research focused on the role of cellular anti-oxidant enzymes in cancer and aging, as well as in the immune response to infectious agents such as Mycoplasma pulmonis and Francisella tularensis. Other research areas include the potential of bone marrow-derived stem cells to reverse premature aging in a transgenic p53 mouse model. Currently, she is an Instructor in Genetics, Behavior, and Ecology, where she uses her expertise in molecular biology and Bioinformatics to introduce students to modern molecular biology techniques and applications, as well as manual gene annotation. She uses model organisms such as C. elegans and D. melanogaster to introduce upper-level undergraduates to the relationship between the environment and genetics. She has extensive experience in medical writing and editing in the fields of cancer and autoimmune disorders, where she assisted opinion leaders in the production of posters and oral presentations, abstracts, clinical papers and reviews. In addition to medical and science publications, she has published in the area of science education and also produces articles highlighting the work of SUNY science faculty for the SUNY Research Foundation. She has experience in writing and submitting grants to various governmental and private entities including the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense and Hewlett-Packard. Dr. Carrico also has experience in working with researchers for whom English is not their primary language.
