Who was Jonas Salk?  What is his legacy to the world?  Whose shoulders did he rest upon?  Why is an entomologist/behavioral ecologist talking about this subject?  And just what DOES Edgar Allen Poe have to do with all of this?  Dr. Barbara Hager, program director of the Biology and Environmental Biology programs at Cazenovia College discusses the answers to these questions and more in a brief survey of the history of vaccine development and application.
Dr. Hager is broadly educated in biology and brings to Cazenovia College many years of experience in field research and instruction. Courses she teaches include general biology, genetics, zoology and animal behavior.  Her favorite fields of study are behavioral ecology and entomology, with a special interest in dragonflies and solitary wasps and bees.
