Sheri Miraglia has been working as a scientist and teacher since 1990.  While earning her Ph.D. studying protein-lipid interactions, she taught Chemistry at Saddleback College.  After graduating, she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where she worked as a post-doctoral fellow and then as a scientist studying stem cells and developing cell-based assay instrumentation for use in pharmaceutical drug discovery.  During the period from 1994-1997, she taught at CCSF in the Biology Department, and she returned as a full-time faculty member in 2009.

Dr. Miraglia has served as a college SLO coordinator and is currently a member of the Academic Senate Executive Council and co-chair of the Accreditation Steering Committee.  However, what she loves most is spending time with students in the microbiology laboratory - culturing, staining, and microscopic imaging of bacteria and unicellular eukaryotes.
