My research is focused on the development, modification, and application of experimental techniques for use in the classroom and laboratory. I am currently working on the design of an automated DNA sequencing experiment and the development of an allelic typing exercise to be incorporated into the senior level molecular biology laboratories. Future work will involve experiments in RT-PRC and fornesic analysis.

Dr. Polson has been instrumental in the establishment and development of the undergraduate molecular biology program at Florida Tech. He developed a sequence of 18 laboratory exercises for the senior laboratory courses in genetic engineering and nucleic acid analysis. Dr. Polson received a Fulbright Fellowship to assist the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Zimbabwe in the establishment of molecular biology training for their faculty and students.
