BohorquezDr. Elaine Bohorquez
Elaine Bohórquez is a native of New York where she obtained her B.S. in biological sciences from Cornell University.  She moved to North Carolina to pursue her graduate degrees with the goal of continuing in academia as a professor at the university level.  In 2006, Elaine completed her M.S. in physiology at NC State, researching avian influenza.  With a growing interest in global health, she moved to UNC-Chapel Hill for her Ph.D. degree in microbiology and immunology where she worked on multidrug resistance in malaria parasites.  During her graduate studies, Elaine sought opportunities to develop her teaching skills and, upon completing her Ph.D., was hired as undergraduate faculty at William Peace University, serving as instructor for upper level molecular biology courses (microbiology, genetics, cell biology, and immunology).  In August 2014, Elaine returned to NC State as a full-time Teaching Assistant Professor for the Physiology Graduate Program and currently teaches the core physiology courses for the Program.
