Acting Deputy Director - Office of Science Policy, National Institutes of Health
Dr. Tucker is the Acting Deputy Director of the Office of Science Policy (OSP) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and helps provide leadership on policy topics that impact biomedical research. She holds a B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and has previously held roles in OSP, the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) at NIH, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and Stony Brook University.
Amy R Johnson
Technical Sales Specialist, Spatial Platforms, Nanostring Technologies
Amy Johnson is a Technical Sales Specialist for NanoString’s GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler and CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager platforms. Amy earned her PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry and completed her postdoctoral training in the Department of Nutrition at UNC-Chapel Hill. From fetal brain development to immunometabolism in obesity, she used in vitro and in vivo model systems, as well as human study populations, to research the interplay between genetic variation in metabolic pathway enzymes and individual health.
Maureen Estévez Stabio
Associate Professor, University of Colorado School of Medicine
Maureen Estévez Stabio is an associate professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine where she currently directs the neuroscience curriculum, and is the Executive Co-Director of the Modern Human Anatomy Program within the Department of Cell & Developmental Biology. She earned a PhD in Anatomy and Neurobiology at Boston University School of Medicine, completed post-doctoral fellowship training in neuroscience at Brown University, and has a research focus on the development of MRI based tools for 3D visualization of the brain, including plastination, 3D printing and extended reality
University of Colorado School of Medicine
Jake received his MS in modern human anatomy from the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where he teaches a course in the Modern Human Anatomy program in digital cadaver preservation. At Touch of Life Technologies, Jake combines his passions for anatomy, education, and immersive reality technology to change how anatomy is taught in and out of the cadaver lab. Outside of work, Jake loves to travel, play fetch with his cats, and play the bass.
Dr. Tim Wilson's interdisciplinary research interests revolve around the CRIPT lab, The Corps for Research of Instructional and Perceptual Technologies. This unique digital anatomy research lab is home to many young researchers and faculty collaborators. Our aim is to become a world leader in digital anatomy education scholarship through these objectives:
1.) To develop de novo digital anatomical learning objects from human and animal volumetric data derived from CT, MR, and serial slice photography.
2.) To evaluate the digital learning objects as it pertains to the study of educational practices and the effects on learner behavior and physiological responses.
3.) To advance the knowledge base concerning human perception, training, and education creating models for future pedagogic practice as educational environments incorporate new technologies.
Baylor College of Medicine, Temple campus
Jennifer McBride, PhD, is Medical Director-Anatomy for Baylor College of Medicine (Temple regional campus), is responsible for overseeing all educational and simulation-based activities in the anatomy laboratory for internal learners and external affiliates, and previously served as Director of Anatomy and Virtual Anatomy Education in the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University, integrating digital anatomy with the case-based anatomy curriculum. An active member of the American Association for Anatomy, Dr. McBride has served as Chair of the AAA Educational Affairs Committee, and also on the Board of Directors. Her research interests include efficacy of educational technology in the acquisition of knowledge, clinically based anatomical studies, and the retention of knowledge over time..
