Welcome to the Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy at LSUHSC-Shreveport 

Our  faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and staff, with their numerous activities and accomplishments, are the backbone of our academic and research programs.  Please scroll down the page to see a list of current accomplishments of the individuals who comprise the Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy!

Our faculty are involved in the education of Medical, Allied Health, and Graduate Students.   In our Ph.D. Program in Cellular Biology and Anatomy we currently have 8 students and in our M.S. Program we currently have 5 students.   

We have nationally and internationally recognized biomedical research programs in key topic areas such as cardiovascular diseases (stroke, atherosclerosis), epilepsy, and diabetic nephropathy.  Our faculty and students use state-of-the-art approaches in cell and molecular biology, high resolution microscopy, electrophysiology/patch clamping, and cellular metabolism studies.  

The success of our program comes from the tremendous effort that our faculty and staff have invested into the Department.   According to the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research (http://www.brimr.org/NIH_Awards/NIH_Awards.htm), the NIH Research Awards obtained by our Department has continued to increase steadily since 2014.   In 2014 our annual extramural funding level from NIH was $217,500; our national ranking among Anatomy/Cell Biology Departments was 73 out of 75 departments.   The most recent published report (2/2019) shows our annual extramural funding from NIH now at $2,215,415; our national ranking among Anatomy/Cell Biology Departments now at 53 out of 78.  That is a 10-fold increase in annual NIH extramural funding and a 20 place rise in national rank.  Considering the size of our full-time faculty and staff, that is an outstanding achievement!

The Willed Body Program at LSU Health Sciences Center

We would like to thank the many generous members of the Ark-La-Tex Community who have chosen to make the ultimate gift as participants in our Willed Body Program.   Without your generosity we could not carry out our key mission of educating Medical, Allied Health, and Graduate students as well as Medical Residents and Fellows, in the Anatomical Sciences.  For more information about enrolling in our Willed Body Program please click on this link.

New and Notable Events in Cellular Biology and Anatomy.

2018 Christmas Party

This year the Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy hosted our annual Christmas Party at Silverstar Steakhouse.   As you can see from the pictures, we had quite a turnout from the faculty, students, postdocs, and staff.   

Spring Seminar Series

The 2019 Spring Seminar Series begins with on February 7th  with a seminar from one of our own, Hemangini Dhaibar, a Ph.D. Candidate working in the laboratory of Dr. Edward Glasscock.    The title of her talk is " Cardiorespiratory Profiling Reveals Primary Breathing Dysfunction as a Candidate Mechanism for Sudden Death in Epilepsy".
