Dr. Gundula Bosch is a program director, educator and educational researcher in the Department of Molecular Microbiology & Immunology, and an adjunct faculty member for adult learning and educational scholarship at the School of Education. 

Her scholarly interests center around the development, evaluation, and oversight of innovative science and health education programs, specifically the “R3” Graduate Science Initiative, that strives to bring more critical and philosophic thinking, interdisciplinary practice applications as well as social responsibility into the way we teach students in the life and public health sciences, and beyond.

She earned a PhD in Biology from the Technical University of Munich and the Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry, and a Master’s degree in Education for the Health Professions from the Johns Hopkins School of Education.
