Dr. Polsinelli completed his bachelor's degree in biochemistry at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA, and graduated cum laude with a minor in chemistry in 2002.  As a three year member of the University Honors Program, he was also named a Commonwealth Scholar after completing four semesters of undergraduate research, a Fralin Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in biotechnology, and a number of honors courses.  After graduating, Dr. Polsinelli went on to pursue his doctorate in biochemistry at The Ohio State University where his research focused on enzymology and the microbial generation of anti-greenhouse gases.  While studying at OhioState, he gained extensive experience teaching graduate-level courses in enzymology, and undergraduate courses in general biology, molecular biology and biochemistry.  He then taught Organic Chemistry I as an Adjunct Instructor at West Virginia University at Parkersburg for one semester prior to joining Mayo Clinic's College of Medicine in Rochester, MN, as a Research Fellow.  His work at Mayo focused on studying the biochemistry, pharmacology, and toxicology of insecticide exposure in humans and the development of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Autism.  This work included the development of less toxic insecticides targeting acetylcholinesterases for the eradication of the malaria mosquito as well as other insects.  Dr. Polsinelli left Mayo to join Cargill Flavor Systems in Cincinnati, OH, as a fermentation scientist with the goal of developing dairy flavor applications using biochemistry and microbiology.  He then decided to return to academia and has held full time teaching appointments with Miami University and Sinclair Community College as well as an adjunct teaching appointment with Cincinnati State.  Courses Dr. Polsinelli has taught include: General Chemistry I and II lectures and labs, Organic Chemistry lecture and lab, Biochemistry lecture and lab, Chemistry for nursing students, General Biology for non-majors, Principles of Biology lecture and lab for majors, General Microbiology lecture and lab, Anatomy and Physiology lecture and lab, and Principles of Fermentation lecture and lab.
