Welcome to the web page of Dr. Teri Shors! I began a tenure track position in the Department of Biology and Microbiology, September of 1997. Prior to my arrival at UW-Oshkosh, I served two years as a postdoctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda, Maryland, under the direction of Dr. Bernard Moss, Chief of the Laboratory of Viral Diseases, National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases. My research training/specialty has been in the field of poxviruses. The courses I teach center around laboratory and lectures in microbiology, virology, molecular and cellular biology, and graduate seminar.

This is an exciting time to be in the Department of Biology and Microbiology. The Halsey Science Center renovation was completed in 2002. Laboratories, classrooms, and computer access have been modernized. In addition, members of the Department were recipients of three National Science Foundation Awards to purchase state of the art equipment. Students and faculty have the opportunity to incorporate this equipment in classroom instruction and in independent research projects. A Proteomics and Functional Genomics Core Facility was created as a result of this funding.
