Michael R. Slabaugh is Professor of Chemistry at Weber State University, where he teaches the year-long sequence of General, Organic, and Biochemistry. He received his B.S. in chemistry from Purdue and his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Iowa State University. His interest in plant alkaloids led to a year of postdoctoral study in biochemistry at Texas A & M. His current professional interests are chemistry education and community involvement in science activities, particularly the State Science and Engineering Fair in Utah.
