Lindsay Dresang



Lindsay Dresang is an associate professor in the Department of Biology at UWSP. Her teaching emphasis is in Human Anatomy and a Survey of Human Dissection. Dresang has developed additional coursework in Cancer Biology and Virology. Her research focuses on liver metastasis in an immunocompromised mouse model to explore the pathway similarities of three metastatic cancer cell lines of diverse cellular origin. She is also interested in teaching as research.
