Rebecca Moffat

Post-Bac Fellow

Optical Microscopy and Analysis Laboratory


Rebecca Moffat graduated from Southern Utah University with a B.S. in Biology. At SUU she worked in an ecology lab to create niche models of biotic and abiotic environmental factors found within BLM-owned land of Southern Utah and in a microbiology lab to determine paraoxon degrading abilities of bacteria in local soil. Rebecca also worked at the SUU STEM Center where community outreach helped her gain an appreciation for K-12 science education, particularly in rural and underserved communities. At OMAL she is using her niche modeling skills to further understand the function of cancer stem cells and their interactions with the environments surrounding them.
