She is joined by Melissa Maginnis, UMaine assistant professor of microbiology; Kristy Townsend, UMaine associate professor of neurobiology; Caitlin Howell, UMaine assistant professor of biomedical engineering; Robert Wheeler, UMaine associate professor of microbiology; and Sara Huston, University of Southern Maine associate research professor and chronic disease epidemiologist.
