Chico, Diane individual record
Associate Professor
overview

My primary interests are in medical education.I serve as teaching faculty in gross anatomy, histology, and neuroscience in the first year curriculum of the College of Medicine. My current scholarly pursuits explore the design, implementation, and evaluation of instructional models that emphasize knowledge application/synthesis and self-directed student learning. My research focuses on measuring whether student learning and knowledge retention of basic sciences improve with the use of these instructional modalities. My past research included structure-function studies of peptide-delivery vehicles and the mechanisms of posttranslational modifications on protein function.
