Course Faculty

  • 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.
