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. 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
