P)  (609) 771-3439

Interim Dean Norvell has been at TCNJ since 2001, when she joined the faculty of the Department of Biology. Since arriving at TCNJ, Dr. Norvell has been an engaged teacher-scholar and an active member of the campus community. As developmental, cell biologist, Dr. Norvell’s research program investigates post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression, using Drosophila melanogaster oogensis as a model system. Dr. Norvell received a B.S. in Microbiology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and her Ph.D. in Immunology from The University of Pennsylvania. Following a post-doctoral fellowship at Princeton University, Dr. Norvell spent a year as a Visiting Professor at Haverford College before coming to TCNJ.  “The College of New Jersey was exactly the kind of institution I wanted to teach at: a state college that is predominantly undergraduate, competes at a private school level, and has excellent facilities for research,” she explained. “I believe state-funded education is very important and I’m really thrilled to be here.”
