NARRATIVE:



Dr. Karpa’s research interests have led to her exploring potential applications of probiotics in vitro as well as in the context of clinical trials. She is passionate about education -- both student education as well as patient education. For that reason, she is frequently involved with developing new educational programs and assessing their effectiveness. Recently, this has led to her involvement with projects overseeing pharmacology medical education, microsurgical simulation workshops, projects assessing our curricular evaluation process, developing herbal and dietary supplement initiatives on campus, and involvement in the Patient Centered Medical Home curriculum. She is also a co-author of Elsevier's Integrated Pharmacology textbook.
