Dr. Lourdes Norman-McKay is a professor at Florida State College Jacksonville, where her peers and students have recognized her with the Outstanding Faculty Award. She earned her B.S. in microbiology and cell science from the University of Florida and her Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine. Her postdoctoral specialization in microbiology and immunology, also at PSU College of Medicine, was funded through a competitive fellowship award from the National Institutes of Health and focused on studying the role of viruses in cancer. During her nearly two decades as a scientist-educator, she has trained thousands of undergraduate and graduate students pursuing healthcare careers and secured extensive federal funding to promote STEM education and empower underrepresented groups in STEM.
Her considerable STEM program development experience ranges from developing and launching a biomedical sciences baccalaureate program to serving as a curriculum designer and subject matter expert for the Florida Space Research Institute and Workforce Florida. A highlight of her international experience includes work as a speaker for the U.S. Department of State's International Information Programs (IPP). As a part of the IIP program, Dr. Norman-McKay traveled to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan to meet with students, faculty, government officials, community leaders, U.S. diplomats, and other stakeholders to bolster STEM education, empower women and youth in STEM, and help build STEM capacity in central Asia.
Dr. Norman-McKay currently serves as a section editor for the American Society for Microbiology's (ASM) Journal of Microbiology and Biology Education and is an active participant in ASM's Microbiology in Nursing and Allied Health Committee. In addition to authoring the first and now second editions of this text, she is a lead author of the Microbiology Laboratory Theory and Applications series (Morton Publishing).
