Personal Statement

Dr. Koga has been at The College of Idaho since 1996. She teaches Frontiers in Biology, Microbiology, Immunology and a non-majors course called Biology of Human Disease.

Dr. Koga is a co-founder and co-director of the Math and Science Summer Institute, a program for middle school students that began in the summer of 2009.
