Biography

At Utah State University, Dr. Hope received her undergraduate degree in German while studying pre-veterinary medicine. She then completed a Master’s Degree at Utah State University in BioVeterinary Science with research on anti-viral drugs. At the University of Kentucky, she obtained a PhD in Veterinary science, with emphasis on virology and molecular immunology while doing research on horses. Dr. Hope’s post-doctoral research was in immunology at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical School where she developed the first transgenic inducible macrophage knockout mouse model. She joined BYU in 2004 and has taught MMBio courses and served as director of the Research Instrumentation Core (RIC) facility. She helped establish the MMBio Phage Hunters program in 2009. Dr. Hope recently completed a business degree at the BYU Marriot School Executive MBA program to be awarded in 2022.

Research Interests

In the RIC facility, Dr. Hope collaborates and advises on diverse applications for Flow Cytometry. She has lead or collaborated on projects ranging from phage treatment of a bacterial infection in honeybees to nanotechnology applications for DNA delivery into cells and production of transgenic animals. Dr. Hope’s current research interest centers on business practices and technology transfer from the sciences into industry.

Teaching Interests

Dr. Hope enjoys teaching in the lecture and lab settings, and in one-on-one or small group teaching for research. As the director of the RIC facility, she works with students to use research equipment, refine research protocols, and interpret research data. As a teaching professor, she currently teaches Immunology lecture and lab, Infection & Immunity (which includes virology, immunology, and bacteriology), and Biology.
