Dr. Gall’s undergraduate and graduate degrees are in molecular cell biology, and her graduate research examined the orientation of the fibrillin-1 and fibrillin-2 proteins within microfibrils, which provide structure to blood vessels, lungs, and the eye. While her training is specifically in cell biology, she enjoys teaching a range of courses in biology, including microbiology, immunology, genetics, and anatomy. She chose to work at Multnomah University because she relishes the opportunity to teach biology at a small Christian college. Dr. Gall is passionate about teaching biology to undergraduates in a setting where she can get to know each student individually and discuss matters of faith and science integration freely in the classroom.
Her hobbies include cooking, reading, knitting, quilting, gardening, and spending time with her husband. She also enjoys exploring the different neighborhoods of Portland and visiting the waterfalls in the Columbia Gorge.
