Chris Papasian is Board Certified in Medical and Public Health Microbiology. He was trained as a classical immunology researcher in both cellular and humoral immunity, then opted to pursue postdoctoral training in Medical and Public Health Microbiology. He served as Director of Diagnostic Microbiology and Immunology Laboratories at major teaching hospitals from 1984-1998. He currently serves as a Microbiology Consultant for Truman Medical Center, a primary teaching hospital for the UMKC School of Medicine.
Dr. Papasian is course director for the Medical Microbiology Course offered to medical students at UMKC.
