Ian C. Clift, PhD, MLS (ASCP)CM is a Clinical Associate Professor in Clinical Laboratory Sciences where he teaches courses on immunoassay design, hormone metabolism, and cellular morphology as practical tools for investigating pathology and physiology in the medical lab. He was the founding program director for the very successful Health Sciences program cluster (2015-2018) and the nationally accredited program in Clinical Laboratory Sciences (2017-2021) at Indiana University South Bend (IUSB). He has extensive experience in biomedical and laboratory science; with focused training in immunology, neurobiology, oncology, and cellular signaling, and received his PhD through the Mayo Clinic’s Mayo Graduate School in Biomedical Science. He has two B.S. degrees one from Purdue and another from the University of Alaska Anchorage in Medical Technology. His textbook, Clinical Immunodiagnostics: Clinical Principles and Practices, can be purchased in the bookstore; but it seriously needs a revision to its section on coronaviruses.
