John T. Stubbs, III, Ph.D.

Associate Professor

  • Microbiology
  • College of Medicine


My doctoral training is in the field of microbiology and molecular genetics. My post-doctoral training was in the field of extracellular matrix biochemistry/cell matrix interactions. I am a member of the cell and molecular biology group within the Microbiology Graduate Program at Howard University. This diverse training and expertise allow me to design, conduct, analyze, and direct interdisciplinary microbial, cellular and molecular biological research. I have taught microbiology and cell/molecular biology to post-graduate residents, graduate, professional, and undergraduate students in my capacity as a faculty member. I have also mentored students in research, and I have facilitated student research. Moreover, I serve as Director of Medical Student Research at Howard University College of Medicine. I promote HUCM medical student participation in research and I facilitate on campus and off campus HUCM medical student research experiences.
