Margaret A. Nordlie, D.A.

Margaret A. Nordlie, D.A. | BiologyProfessor of Biology


  • Doctor of Arts, Biology, University of North Dakota
  • M.S., Genetics, University of Minnesota
  • B.S.N., Nursing, University of North Dakota

Dr. Nordlie’s interests include genetics (particularly human and behavior genetics), and physiology/pathophysiology. Past research projects have focused on the possible induction of chromosome abnormalities by different genetic subtypes of the blood protein transferrin, and the effects of particulates in air pollution on cardiac function.
