Faculty Bios

FAES courses are taught by highly qualified faculty, most of whom are active researchers at the NIH. Courses in the applied disciplines, such as technology transfer or modern languages, are frequently taught by practitioners active in their field. A great number of our courses are team taught, and our students can benefit from the expertise of over 150 dedicated faculty.

Background on our faculty is available in the Faculty section of our Catalog of Courses or in the Student Portal once students have enrolled in a course.
