Betty Kutter, Member of the Faculty, Emerita: After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in math from the University of Washington in 1962, Betty Kutter went on to University of Rochester, New York to work on her Ph.D., where she began work on a lifetime odyssey with the transition from host to viral metabolism after infection of E. coli by bacteriophage T4. Betty joined the faculty at The Evergreen State College in 1972 and brought her NIH grant with her. Bacteriophages, viruses that kill bacteria, are wonderful subjects for undergraduate research. Hundreds of undergrad students and occasional postdoctorates have been involved in Betty’s lab over the last 40 years. While at Evergreen, she also taught in full-time integrated programs such as "Molecule to Organism," "Health and Human Behavior" and "Nutrition, Culture and Community Health."
