Meet the Author

Dee Silverthorn has been teaching at the University of Texas since 1986 where she lectures and coordinates student laboratories in physiology, and instructs graduate students in a course on developing teaching skills in the life sciences. Her innovative teaching has been recognized with numerous local and national awards, including the American Physiological Society's Arthur C. Guyton Physiology Educator of the Year and Claude Bernard Distinguished Lectureship, and the University of Texas Marilla D. Svinicki Burnt Orange Apple Award, Texas Excellence Teaching Award, and College of Natural Sciences Teaching Excellence Award. Her textbook also received the Robert W. Hamilton Author Award for best textbook published by a University of Texas faculty member. "Dr. Dee" studied biology and art as an undergraduate at Newcomb College and went onto earn a Ph.D. in marine science from the University of South Carolina. She began her career in the Physiology Department of the Medical University of South Carolina and spent several years at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston before coming to Austin. Her research interest is epithelial transport, and work in her laboratory currently focuses on transport properties of the chick allantoic membrane. She is past chair of the Teaching Section of the American Physiological Society and just completed six years as editor-in-chief of Advances in Physiology Education. Her physiology education outreach extends to the international level and she has organized workshops and symposia in countries around the world.
