Teaches Biology, Medical Biology, and Biochemistry courses including Microbiology, Biochemistry I & II, and Cell Biology.
Scholarly interests - Effects of stress on bacterial gene expression.
Auger studies how bacteria respond to environmental stress like acidic conditions
and heat—responses that involve stress proteins, allowing bacteria to survive
under adverse conditions and, in some cases, cause disease. She previously
studied stress responses in cancer cells and their effect on cancer treatment.
