Dave came to the University of New England in 1994 following completion of his M.D. (University of Wisconsin) and M.A. (History of Medicine/Science, University of Wisconsin) degrees. He teaches courses in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, cardiovascular physiology, human reproduction, and embryology. His areas of research have included the effects of individual learning styles on collaborative clinical problem-solving, the cardiovascular and neurologic effects of purposeful vs. non-purposeful activity, and, more recently, the study of the emotional and cardiovascular effects of art-making. He... Read More

Dr. Fox is a graduate of the University of Tennessee where she received a Bachelor's degree in Organismal Biology. From there she went to the University of Houston where she earned her Master's of Science for her work on the reproduction of Penaeid shrimp. From Houston she went to Seattle, Washington where she entered the Doctoral program at the University of Washington in the College of Ocean and Fisheries Science while at the same time working in the Medical Center in...

Dr. Bass was trained as a zoologist and has been lucky to work on invertebrates, fish, reptiles, birds and mammals. While Molecular Ecology is a broad descriptor of her field of study, recent research on stranded and rehabilitated marine mammals led to deeper interests in the field of disease ecology and the concept of ecosystem health. In addition, she is interested in the One Health approach as a strategy to link multiple disciplines in the study, prevention and management of... Read More
My research/academic background is in an obscure area of biology known as "eco-evo-devo" (ecological evolutionary developmental biology.) In particular, my most recent research was an amalgam of developmental endocrinology, epigenetics, and high-sensitivity titer analysis of steroid hormones that regulate critical periods of development.
I currently teach microbiology, applied microbiology, and anatomy & physiology labs. I am also the biology department's liason to the education department. For those interested in double-majoring in education and any of UNE's biology programs, please don't hesitate to contact me!... Read More
Jennifer started working at UNE in 2002, and teaches the gross anatomy labs for the PA and DPT graduate students, as well as A&P and Intro BIO for the undergradutates. She grew up in central Maine, graduated from Foxcroft Academy, went to Stonehill College for Biology, and studied Anatomy & Cell Biology at the UMDNJ-Graduate School Biomedical Sciences, Newark, NJ.
