Dr. Caroline Wilson completed her doctoral work at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ in the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Graduate Program. Dr. Wilson’s research focused on the signaling molecule, nitric oxide, and its importance in olfactory processing. After completing her PhD, Dr. Wilson joined Dr. Dan Hartline and Dr. Petra Lenz in their lab at the University of Hawai‛i Mānoa, at the Pacific Biosciences Research Center. Her research there focused on identifying how myelin forms in marine invertebrates. Dr. Wilson was next hired as the Neuroscience Bridge Scholar and Visiting Assistant Professor at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, by the Biological Sciences department. In 2010, she joined the faculty in Biological Sciences and the WWAMI School of Medical Education at the University of Alaska Anchorage. At UAA, she was involved in teaching medical, occupational therapy, and undergraduate students. She conducted research on muscle development and the use of three dimensional anatomical models for patient education. She also began training to become a certified Team Based Learning Consortium consultant, which should be completed in spring 2018.
In 2017, Dr. Wilson joined Chapman University in the Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences as an Associate Clinical Professor. She hopes to train students on the use of the Anatomage Virtual Cadaver table and research how three-dimensional anatomical model printing may be utilized in student education.
