Meet the Author

David Shier has more than thirty years of experience teaching anatomy and physiology, primarily to premedical, nursing, dental, and allied health students. He has effectively incorporated his extensive teaching experience into another student-friendly revision of Hole’s Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology and Hole’s Human Anatomy and Physiology. His interest in physiology and teaching began with a job as a research assistant at Harvard Medical School from 1976-1979. He completed his Ph.D. at the University of Michigan in 1984, and served on the faculty of the Medical College of Ohio from 1985-1989. He began teaching at Washtenaw Community College in 1990. David has recent experience in online course delivery, including recording lectures for so-called “flipped” classrooms. He has also been interested in the relationship between pedagogy and assessment, and the use of tools traditionally associated with assessment (e.g. lab quizzes) as pedagogical tools, often associated with group activities.

Jackie Butler’s professional background includes work at the University of Texas Health Science Center conducting research about the genetics of bilateral retinoblastoma. She later worked at Houston’s M. D. Anderson Hospital investigating remission in leukemia patients. A popular educator for more than thirty years at Grayson College, Jackie has taught microbiology and human anatomy and physiology for health science majors. Her experience and work with students of various educational backgrounds have contributed significantly to another revision of Hole’s Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology and Hole’s Human Anatomy and Physiology. Jackie Butler received her B.S. and M.S. degrees from Texas A&M University, focusing on microbiology, including courses in immunology and epidemiology.

Ricki Lewis has built an eclectic career in communicating the excitement of genetics

and genomics. She earned her Ph.D. in genetics in 1980 from Indiana University.

It was the dawn of the modern biotechnology era, which Ricki chronicled in many

magazines and journals. She published one of the first articles on DNA fingerprinting

in Discover magazine in 1988, and a decade later one of the first articles on human

stem cells in The Scientist.

Ricki has taught a variety of life science courses at Miami University, the University

at Albany, Empire State College, and community colleges. She has authored or

co-authored several university-level textbooks and is the author of The Forever Fix:

Gene Therapy and the Boy Who Saved It, as well as an essay collection and a novel .

Ricki has been a genetic counselor for a private medical practice since 1984 and is

a frequent public speaker. Since 2012, Ricki has written hundreds of news stories

for Medscape Medical News, articles for Scientific American and for several genetic

disease organizations, and originated and writes the popular weekly DNA Science

blog at Public Library of Science.

Ricki teaches an online course on “Genethics” for the Alden March Bioethics Institute

of Albany Medical College. She lives in upstate New York and sometimes Martha’s

Vineyard, with husband Larry and several felines. Contact Ricki at rickilewis54@gmail.
