Dr. Peter Anderson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology at the University of Alabama - Birmingham School of Medicine where he is also Director of Pathology Undergraduate Education.  He received his D.V.M. degree from the Veterinary College at the University of Washington - Seattle, and then went on to specialize in cardiovascular pathology obtaining his Ph.D. degree from the University of Alabama.  He's been on staff at the Birmingham campus since 1986 and currently directs an NIH-funded research program investigating cardiac hypertrophy and congestive heart failure. 

In addition to receiving teaching awards, Dr. Anderson has been recognized for his excellence in pathology education through a series of regional and national awards in pathology informatics and software development.   Due to the unique demands of the "image-rich" nature of pathology, he has experimented with various multimedia approaches for teaching pathology to medical students.  He and his colleagues have developed a Pathology Education Instructional Resource Website with image databases and medical education digital libraries.  You're invited to visit this site at   At this University of Alabama website, he controls over 40,000 images, and I'm certain we'll be hearing more this morning about how he uses these images to train his medical students.

A long time member of the former Basic Science Education Forum, and now Charter Member of IAMSE, Dr. Anderson has been active in our organization as an elected member of the Board of Directors, and as head of the newly created IAMSE Task Force on Technology.  This July he will be conducting one of the four day-long Pre-Conference Faculty Development Courses we're offering at our Annual Association Meeting in Guadalajara, Mexico.

When Pete's not doing all the above for the greater good of medicine and humanity, he also coaches his 10-year-old son's basketball team, which he's asked me to point out last winter had an undefeated season.  He also coaches his 8-year-old son's baseball team that is currently 5 and 5 on the season.
