Professional: Dr. Comstock teaches in the areas of life science, advanced physiology, and cell and molecular biology. She previously worked as a laboratory instructor at Portland State University.

Dr. Comstock’s ongoing research at Corban University is on the effects of sugar-sweetened beverages on the physiology of female mice and their offspring. Her previous work at Oregon Health and Science University involved studying the effects of maternal obesity and high fat diet consumption on the metabolic health of fetal and young, post-natal Japanese macaques (Japanese Snow Monkeys).

Personal: Sarah’s husband is an elementary school teacher in their hometown, Sublimity. The Comstocks have one adopted son from Haiti and are in the process of adopting again from Ghana. Find out more about their adoption process at adoptdroiy.blogspot.com.

Sarah’s previous short-term mission work includes Puebla, Mexico and São Paulo, Brazil. At Corban, Sarah is the faculty sponsor and leader of the Health Science department’s annual short-term medical mission trip to Haiti where students and local physicians and nurses minister through medical clinics in the areas surrounding Port-au-Prince.

Why Corban: "I chose to teach at Corban University because of the school’s mission ‘to educate students to make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.’ Not only is the university dedicated to students learning in their subject, we also care about the student as a whole. We want to help students mature in their walk with Christ, while also using the gifts God gave them within their specific discipline. The university is dedicated to excellence in education and I am excited to be a part of the process.”
