Leslie Ann Schiff wins 2004 Carski Foundation Award

WASHINGTON, DC--APRIL 23, 2004-- Leslie Ann Schiff, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Microbiology and Director of Undergraduate Studies in Microbiology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, will receive the 2004 Carski Foundation Distinguished Teaching Award from the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). Proudly supported by the Carski Foundation since 1968, the award honors Schiff for her innovation and creativity as an undergraduate teacher, her extraordinary commitment to teaching and advising students, and her inspiring example of how science can be a productive and satisfying career. At the ASM General Meeting, she will deliver the Carski Award Lecture, "Cell Phones, CNN, TiVo, and Teaching: Educational Challenges in These Digital Times."

Despite the demands of an active research program focusing on virus-cell interactions, Schiff displays unparalleled accessibility and commitment to her students. As departmental director of undergraduate studies, she has a lasting influence on all microbiology majors throughout their university careers. Schiff serves as her department's representative on the College of Biological Sciences Educational Policy Council at the University of Minnesota, where she is a strong voice for high educational standards. Her influence is also important in other areas, such the Preparing Future Faculty program, which helps doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows hone their teaching and assessment skills, and the teaching workshops she conducts on the effective use of technology and writing in the classroom.

Schiff is widely recognized as a gifted educator who inspires her students to high levels of achievement. She designed an upper-level, writing-intensive course in virology for advanced undergraduate majors, for which she consistently receives the highest possible student evaluations. Her commitment to excellence in undergraduate education extends to her own laboratory, where 18 undergraduates in recent years have
