Science Writing Lecturer

Holly Gallagher teaches courses in science and health writing, including Scientific Research Writing and Science and Health Writing. Her teaching interests include questions of ethics in contemporary scientific research and communication between scientists and the general public. She has also taught writing courses on Biomedical Ethics and Global Health Issues, which addressed matters such as science advocacy and policy.

Gallagher’s research interests span both science and the humanities. Her doctoral work specialized in nineteenth-century British literature and the visual arts, and her dissertation examines Victorian perceptions of art and the shared emotions that occur in art spaces.

Undergraduate Research in Biology

Undergraduates majoring in biology have the opportunity to enhance their learning through direct participation in research and scholarship. At UGA, these opportunities enable undergraduates to participate in ground-breaking research, often as part of a team of graduate students and faculty. In fact, many students can earn academic credit while working under an experienced faculty mentor by taking BIOL 4960R or working directly with the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO). The Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellowship (BSURF) has been established to support undergraduate research opportunities in the Division of Biological Sciences within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. The Fellowship provides financial assistance to a student who has not had an opportunity to participate in a mentored research experience (paid, volunteer, or for credit) since matriculating to The University of Georgia.
