Teaching Metabolism and Nutrition


My current research and scholarship involves curriculum design and implementation, as well as assessment of student learning. I work with a national team of educators on the development of a metabolic map for use in both learning and for incorporation on future medical licensing exams. I have also recently been working on developing a set of national nutritional learning objectives and tools for medical students. My prior research involved understanding the detailed mechanisms of enzymes that alter DNA structure.
