About

Julia Wolf teaches the research-based laboratories required of the students in the Applied Molecular Biology Master’s degree program. The students work independently on scientific problems in collaboration with research faculty at UMBC and at local biotechnology companies. Her goal is to incorporate the latest techniques and applications in a challenging, collaborative, and supportive environment, emphasizing critical thinking and scientific communication, to best prepare the students for successful research or professional careers.
