Thomas Freeman

Lecturer, Chemistry

Dr. Freeman is featured in ACUE’s module: Embracing Diversity in Your Classroom.

Freeman is a Lecturer in the Chemistry Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Previously, he taught Biochemistry at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC during his postdoctoral fellowship.

A former SPIRE (Seeding Postdoctoral Innovators and Researchers in Education) Scholar, Freeman uses innovative teaching strategies to effectively teach students how to think like a scientist while learning Biochemistry. He aims to inspire future generations to achieve greatness through science and technology. A former member of the Parise Lab, he helped improve our understanding of how CIB1, a regulator of many cellular processes including adhesion, proliferation, and calcium signaling, interacts with integrin adhesion receptors.

Freeman earned his BS in Biochemistry from Xavier University of Louisiana. He holds a PhD in the same field from Tulane University.
