 Laura L Mays Hoopes

 

Professor of Biology & Molecular Biology, Pomona College

 

Dr. Hoopes is also a first year student in the MFA Fiction program at SDSU.  She received the AB from Goucher College and the PhD from Yale University in biological sciences.  Her Certificate in Creative Writing is from UCLA.  Laura studies mechanisms of aging in budding yeast.  Besides authoring a textbook, she has published numerous refereed scientific articles, mostly coauthored with her undergraduate students.  Her scientific research has been funded by NSF, NIH, AFAR, and Research Corporation.  She has also published articles and short stories in Christian Science Monitor, The Chaffin Journal, North Carolina Literary Review, and other venues. In spring, 2011, Laura released Breaking Through the Spiral Ceiling, a memoir about growing up in the Eisenhower years, being recruited to science by Sputnik, falling in love with DNA, working to unveil the mysteries of aging molecules, getting married and having children, and crashing into gender-barriers in molecular biology.
