Timothy Meier

Associate Professor
College of Arts and Sciences,
Department of Applied Science

Teaching at Maranatha is Mr. Timothy Meier’s second career. He spent more than twenty-five years studying infectious diseases and doing cancer research at a pharmaceutical research company. The Lord led him to take early retirement when it was offered, and he came to Maranatha in 2018. Mr. Meier teaches a variety of course in the Department of Applied Science. 

“After finishing a career in pharmaceutical research, I wanted to help the next generation of students interested in science prepare for their ministry. I believe sharing my experience as a researcher will complement the academic training they will receive while attending MBU and better prepare them for the challenges of a scientific career.” – Timothy Meier
