Dr. Timothy Rohrbach graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology along with a minor in Microbiology. While an undergraduate, he participated in biomedical research that investigated the ability of the trans-translational pathway to be a target of therapeutic intervention in bacteria. In graduate school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, I investigated the role the MARCKS protein plays in radiation sensitivity for lung and brain cancer. He earned my PhD in Microbiology (Immunology Theme) in 2015. Afterwards, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University, where I investigated the role sphingolipids play in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD).

Over the last decade, Dr. Rohrbach has  had the opportunity to teach first-year to advanced level undergraduate biology courses at multiple institutions. At Richard Bland College, he has taught General Biology, Microbiology, and Cell Biology. His teaching goals are to  implement evidence-based teaching practices and provide students with student-centered learning experience.
