Our professors are distinguished scholars, active researchers, published writers, and faithful Christians who demonstrate what it means to be both Christ-followers and leaders in their academic fields. As mentors and role models, they play a huge role in the integration of faith and learning at Bethel.

Faculty

Joyce Doan

Professor | j-doan@bethel.edu | Started at Bethel: 2004

Dr. Doan’s main research interests are in the area of macrophage activation. Macrophages are multifunctional leukocytes that constitute a major first line of defense against infection. Resting macrophages are phagocytic, but macrophages activated by both intrinsic and extrinsic stimuli acquire a broad range of functions ranging from the release of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, cytokine secretion, upregulated phagocytosis, and the ability to participate in the activation of adapt. . . read more.

Brian Hyatt

Professor | b-hyatt@bethel.edu | Started at Bethel: 2003

Hyatt’s research interests include developmental genetics of early lung development.

Ashley Mahoney

Professor of Chemistry | amahoney@bethel.edu | Started at Bethel: 2001

Mahoney's research is in chemical education, both curriculum development and scholarship of teaching and learning projects. Mahoney is active with the POGIL (process-oriented guided inquiry learning) Project and has co-authored a collection of POGIL activities for the GOB (allied health) classroom available through Wiley. She has also assembled a national consortium of faculty to write inquiry laboratories for introductory courses. Her research projects focus on incorporating various learni. . . read more.

Matthew Neibergall

Assistant Professor of Chemistry | m-neibergall@bethel.edu | Started at Bethel: 2007

Neibergall studies the mechanisms by which oxygenase enzymes activate O2 for insertion into organic compounds during cellular metabolism. The formation of DNA nucleotides from their RNA nucleotide precursors, the conversion of the amino acid phenylalanine to tyrosine and then to the neurotransmitter dopamine, and the production of prostaglandins are biological pathways that require oxygenase enzymes. Currently, his research group is studying nitrobenzene-1,2-dioxygenase, a Rieske non-heme i. . . read more.

Paula Soneral

Associate Professor | p-soneral@bethel.edu | Started at Bethel: 2008

Soneral’s research interests include cell motility and the cytoskeleton and regulation of motor proteins in cilia/flagellar assembly.

Angela Stoeckman

Associate Professor of Chemistry | a-stoeckman@bethel.edu | Started at Bethel: 2015

I am interested in the regulation of fatty acid metabolism. Fatty acids are not only important in the generation of ATP/energy, but they are important signaling molecules and inflammatory mediators. Fatty acids are stored as triacylglycerol (TAG) molecules in a dynamic cellular organelle called the lipid droplet. My research focuses on proteins that coat these lipid droplets in the hepatocyte and act to regulate the entry or exit of TAGs.
