Amber Howerton, Ph.D. Amber.Howerton@nsc.edu (702)-992-2660 LAS 155 Research Website
Dr. Howerton obtained a B.S in Biology at the University of Central Oklahoma in 2000 and a Ph.D in Biochemistry and Organic Chemistry at UNLV in 2012. She loves animals and currently has four dogs, several tree frogs and salamanders, a big saltwater fish tank, and a husband. Since she grew up on a farm in western Oklahoma, getting out of the city and spending some time in nature is her therapy. She loves to go camping, hiking and exploring the desert when it is not scorching outside and is also an avid reader of every genre and love experimenting with recipes in the kitchen (must be the chemist in her)!
Dr. Howerton has taught: Chem 474/475 (Biochemistry), Chem 112 (Introduction to Chemistry), Bio 251 (Microbiology)
