Dr. James E. Maruniak


I have taught virology for 29 years in two different departments: Microbiology and Cell Science in the School of Agriculture and in Immunology and Medical Microbiology in the School of Medicine and for one year at Yale University School of Medicine. Currently, I am the coordinator and an instructor for the virology classes MCB 4503 and MCB 5505 (http://entnem.ifas.ufl.edu/maruniak/virology/). Over the years I have given lectures in Bacterial and Viral Pathogens, Insect Pathology and Biocontrol courses. I have developed and teach with Dr. Alejandra Garcia Maruniak, a hands-on methods course, ENY 6822C Molecular Biology Techniques with Invertebrates and their Pathogens. I also give four to six lectures in MCB 5252 Microbiology, Immunology and Therapeutics.
