Rosanne Lipcius started her career working as a Microbiology bench technologist. Professor Lipcius completed her Master’s degree in clinical microbiology in 1984 and was supervisor in clinical laboratories in Connecticut.
Professor Lipcius began her teaching career in 1995, as the Microbiology and Urinalysis instructor at Hartford Hospital. She joined the faculty at UConn in August 2001 as the Medical Technology Program Director at the University of Connecticut. Beside oversight of the Medical Technology program, Professor Lipcius is directly responsible for the recruitment of students into the program and teaching assignments which include courses in Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Techniques.
“I enjoy working with the students – hopefully they will find a career in Clinical Laboratory Science as enjoyable and rewarding as I have. The field offers a tremendous amount of opportunities and allows everyone to find their own little niche. Whether it is working as a generalist (rotating in all areas of the clinical lab) or choosing a specialty area (such as Microbiology or Chemistry), or in a hospital, a reference laboratory, or in industry, there is always something new to learn. That is one of the reasons why Medical Technology has been such a good choice for me. I like to be constantly challenged and know that what I am doing will somehow make a difference in someone’s life.”
