Darlene Walro is an Associate Professor of Biology at Walsh University. She holds a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. from Ohio University.

M.S. Thesis Title: The growth of Staphylococcus aureus, coagulase-positive and coagulase-negative strains, in human serum of varying iron levels.

Ph.D. Dissertation Title: A study of herpes simplex virus type 1-associated protein kinases.

Current research interests: Characterizing attachment factors possessed by Staphylococcus species from clinical and non-clinical human isolates; Expression of heat shock proteins in HSV-1 infected cells.

Dr. Walro joined Walsh University in 1997. She teaches classes in microbiology, virology, parasitology and genetics.
