Course Faculty

  • William S. Brooks, Ph.D. — Associate Professor of Cell, Developmental & Integrative Biology. Brooks completed his Ph.D. in cell biology at UAB in 2007. He has since spent his career as an anatomy educator at both the undergraduate and graduate/professional levels. Brooks taught undergraduate Anatomy & Physiology and Histology for four years. He has been teaching graduate/professional Gross Anatomy since 2011. Brooks currently serves as the Director of Gross Anatomy Lab and Surgical Anatomy Lab at UAB. His research interests are in team-based learning (TBL) and continuing education in the anatomical sciences.
  • David Resuehr, Ph.D. — Assistant Professor of Cell, Developmental & Integrative Biology. Resuehr received his Ph.D. in biology from the University of Hamburg in 2004. He then continued his research at Florida State University and then was accepted into the Vanderbilt University “Scientist Educator Program” where he was trained in gross anatomy instruction for three years. He has since taught anatomy to students of several health science disciplines, including Medicine, Dentistry, Optometry and Nursing Anesthesia. One of Resuehr’s special interests is imaging techniques and their utility in understanding three-dimensional anatomy. He is Director of the Anatomy Lab Teaching Associate Course and Director of Gross Anatomy for Students of Optometry.
  • Bradley Barger, Ph.D. — Assistant Professor of Cell, Developmental & Integrative Biology. Barger received his Ph.D. in Anatomy Education from Indiana University in 2016 and joined the faculty at UAB that same year. He teaches anatomy across multiple graduate and health science programs and is course director for undergraduate Clinical Anatomy. Barger’s research interests are in 3D printing and in visual literacy.
  • Inga Kadish, Ph.D. — Assistant Professor of Cell, Developmental & Integrative Biology. Dr. Kadish received her PhD in Neuroscience and Neurology from University of Kuopio, Finland in 2002 and completed her postdoc training in Vascular Biology and Hypertension at University of Alabama at Birmingham. Besides doing preclinical research in aging and Alzheimer’s disease, Dr. Kadish has thought neurophysiology, anatomy and neuropharmacology courses to graduate school since 2006. In 2018 Dr. Kadish joined anatomy teaching faculty teaching anatomy across multiple graduate and health science programs.
