ABE Featured Member - March 2024

What are your name and title/rank?

Adam Morrow, Associate Professor for Cell Biology and Physiology

How long have you been a member of ABE, and what attracted you to the organization?

I have been a member of ABE since 2020. As my teaching duties began increasing, I was excited to connect with other educators to learn new content delivery modalities and student engagement strategies from those with more experience than myself.

Looking at your time with the association, what have you most enjoyed doing? What are you looking forward to?

I have enjoyed making new professional friendships and diving right into work with the new communication development committee (ACDC). I am looking forward to continue establishing the ABE footprint within the larger scientific education community. 

Tell us more about your ABE conference contributions. If you aren't presenting, what are you most excited about engaging in?

At the 2023 meeting, I presented a poster centered around what the ABE membership would like to see from the organization.

If people would like to follow you on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc), what are your handles?

What interesting things are you working on outside of the association right now? Research, presentations, hobbies, etc.

Having coached my oldest two children in the past, I’m now completing the trifecta by coaching my youngest daughter’s soccer team. I am also working with my son to manage his lawn care business he just launched this past year.





What are your name and title/rank?

Jana Simmons, Associate Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

How long have you been a member of ABE, and what attracted you to the organization?

I have been a member since 2013.  I was attracted by the idea of an organization dedicated to the discipline of biochemistry for health colleges.  It feels like this organization was made for me!  I loved the networking and sharing of ideas and was eager to get involved.


Looking at your time with the association, what have you most enjoyed doing? What are you looking forward to?

I have made wonderful professional networking relationships and friendships in ABE.  I loved serving on the Board for 8 years and plan to stay involved in the organization now that I am rotating off the Board.  I thoroughly enjoy our biennial meetings and the wonderful people who seek to learn from each other and improve biochemistry education together.

2 / 2

I have attended each conference since 2013 and presented either an oral or poster at each one.  Other than presenting, I am most excited about the networking and catching up with my ABE friends in person this year!

What interesting things are you working on outside of the association right now? Research, presentations, hobbies, etc.

I am a member of the Michigan Medical Nutrition Education Consortium and we are working on a couple projects to increase nutrition education in medical schools and advocate for nutritional biochemistry in medical curricula, especially in Michigan.
