Assistant Professor

  • BA, Pennsylvania State University, 1982
  • DPM, WMS College of Podiatric Medicine, 1986
  • Post Doc Residency: Podiatry Hospital of Pittsburgh, PA, 1986-1987

Research Interests

Limb development and molecular mechanisms of wound healing.

I am an instructor for the Dept of Cell & Developmental Biology. Currently, I teach both human anatomy & neuroanatomy for the school of Medicine & Dentistry. My courses utilize both lecture presentations and cadaver dissections to provide students with a fundamental understanding of human structure and development. These basic science courses are augmented by integrating clinical and pathological conditions to facilitate the correlation between structure and function. Aside from a classic dissection approach to human structure, a variety of educational enhancements including radiographic imaging studies, cross-sectional specimens and video animations are employed to optimize 3-D relationships.
