About the author (2001)

DEE UNGLAUB SILVERTHORN studied biology as an undergraduate at Tulane University and went on to earn a Ph.D. in marine science at the University of South Carolina. Her research interests center on comparative invertebrate physiology; however, she began her teaching career in the Physiology Department at the Medical University of South Carolina. Drawing on her training in both comparative and traditional human physiology, Dee has taught a wide range of students, from those in medical school and college to those still preparing for a higher education. At the University of Texas she lectures in physiology, coordinates undergraduate laboratories in physiology, and instructs graduate students in a course on developing teaching skills in the life sciences. She has substantial experience with active learning in the classroom, and has given workshops on this subject at regional, national, and international conferences.

Dee is a member of the American Physiological Society and an associate editor of Advances in Physiology Education. She works with members of the International Union of Physiological Sciences to improve physiology education in developing countries. She is also a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society, the Society for Biology Laboratory Education, the Society for College Science Teaching, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Sigma Xi. Her free time is spent creating multimedia fiber art and enjoying the Texas hill country with her husband, Andy, three dogs, and a cat.
