Associate Professor of Microbiology

Tracey Taylor

Dr. Taylor joined the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine in August 2014 as Associate Professor of Microbiology. She teaches microbiology and infectious diseases to M1 and M2 students.

Prior to joining OUWB School of Medicine, Dr. Taylor was an Assistant, and then Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Microbiology at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, where she taught microbiology to M1 and M2 osteopathic medical students.

Dr. Taylor received a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in Cellular, Molecular, and Microbial Biology from the University of Calgary, Alberta, and a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Western Ontario, London.

In 2014 the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners appointed her to its National Faculty in the Foundational Biomedical Sciences in the Division of Microbiology and Immunology. She served as vice president for the American Society for Microbiology, Missouri branch, and is a member of the International Association of Medical Science Educators, the National American Society for Microbiology and the American Gastroenterological Association.

Dr. Taylor’s main research areas are microbiology and pathogenesis, and includes a microbiology medical education research project investigating the use of online learning modules for microbiology laboratory teaching; a study to understand how the aquatic bacteria Plesiomonas shigelloides causes diarrhea and other infections in humans by characterization of adherence and antibiotic resistance factors; and another that investigates the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) among the homeless and economically disadvantaged populations.
