Editor-In-Chief of Trends in Anatomy and Physiology
Dr. Richard L Doolittle is Professor and Vice Dean of the College of Health Sciences and Technology at RIT and is a recognized authority on a range of pedagogical methodologies (distance learning, blended learning, and evidence-based, problem-solving/case study based models) across a number of biomedical science disciplines (anatomy and neuroscience). He has continued his research in the construct of virtual reality systems for educational and biomedical engineering applications based on his strong background in pathology and the anatomical sciences. He has the authority, experience and Institute Review Board knowledge to provide support for experimental design and human subject’s research oversight. Additionally, he has worked with administrators and faculty of RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf to create a “center of excellence” in the preparation and training of D/HH students for careers in health care. He is engaged in a funded NIH R25 grant and serves as a current K12 NIH grant Co-PI both designed to contribute to the creation of a training pipeline to service the needs of this underserved population.
