Joshua W. Williams, PhD, MLS(ASCP)
Assistant Professor, Coordinator of the MLS Program - Abingdon Campus
I am a native of southwest Virginia and received my BS and PhD from Virginia Tech. Following graduation, my postdoctoral research focused on the human pathogens Clostridium difficile and Helicobacter pylori. I decided to change careers and enter the medical laboratory when I moved home to southwest Virginia, and worked as a generalist in a small community hospital prior to joining the faculty at VCU to teach at the SWVA Higher Education Center location in Abingdon, VA.
Focused primarily on bacterial gene regulation and control of virulence factors/pathogenesis.
