Organization profile

organization profile

The Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology is dedicated to the mission of OSU through teaching, research and service.

We support the continued success of the Department of Biomedical Sciences by offering core courses for the medical program and courses for the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program, including the Anatomy and Vertebrate Paleontology Track.

Our faculty members are extensively involved in the teaching program for osteopathic medical students and graduate students. Each faculty member is involved in some aspect of state, university, college, and/or community service.

All faculty are members of the OSU graduate faculty and their areas of research include:

  • Application of gene therapy in strategies to induce tolerance by intrathymic cellular transplantation
  • Cytoskeleton in cell regulatory mechanisms;role of cAMP in cell morphology; gap junction changes in arthritis
  • Role of glutamate metabolism during chronic pain and spinal injury
  • Modulation of AMPA subtype of glutamate receptors by endogenous and exogenous factors; AMPA receptors in neurodegenerative diseases
  • Biogeography, systematics, and faunal studies of mammals including fossil rodents and insectivores.
  • Route of amebic infection to the central nervous system
