About the Author
Ronald T. Harris received his undergraduate degree from California State University, Northridge, and both his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Southern California. In 1975, Ron was appointed to the position of Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Southern California, where he taught human anatomy, general physiology, human embryology, and human sexuality for 20 years. In 2001 he became an adjunct professor of biology at Marymount California University, where he currently teaches human anatomy, human physiology, cell biology, and human anatomy and physiology. Ron also has extensive experience in the skin and hair care industries. He was Vice President of Research and Development at Redken Laboratories (now owned by L’Oréal USA) and a subsidiary of Shiseido Cosmetics. In these capacities, he led teams of researchers in the detailed structure and function of skin and hair. Ron’s current research interests focus on the brain circuits involved in cognition and the mechanisms of memory.
Michael P. McKinley received his undergraduate degree from the University of California, and both MS and PhD degrees from Arizona State University. In 1978, he accepted a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) Medical School in the laboratory of Dr. Stanley Prusiner, where he worked for 12 years investigating prions and prion-diseases. In 1980, he became a member of the anatomy faculty at the UCSF Medical School, where he taught medical histology for 10 years while continuing to do research on prions. During this time, he was an author or co-author of more than 80 scientific papers. Michael was a member of the biology faculty at Glendale Community College from 1991 to 2012, where he taught undergraduate anatomy and physiology, general biology, and genetics. Between 1991 and 2000, he also participated in Alzheimer disease research and served as director of the Brain Donation Program at the Sun Health Research Institute, as well as teaching developmental biology and human genetics at Arizona State University, West. His vast experience in histology, neuroanatomy, and cell biology greatly shaped the related content in Human Anatomy. He retired from active teaching in 2012 and continues to be an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). Michael is coauthor of the McKinley/O’Loughlin/Bidle: Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach textbook. He resides in Tempe, AZ, with his wife Jan.

Pennefather-O'Brien received her undergraduate degree from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and her MA and PhD degrees in biological anthropology from Indiana University, Bloomington. She is a full-time instructor at Medicine Hat College in Alberta, teaching anatomy and physiology to nursing and paramedic students. She has also taught physiology and biology for nonmajors. Elizabeth is active in several professional organizations including the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the Faculty Association at Medicine Hat College. In 2012, Elizabeth was one of five inaugural recipients of the College Sector Educator Awards bestowed by the Society of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE).
Valerie Dean O'Loughlin received her undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary, and her PhD in biological anthropology from Indiana University. She is an Associate Professor of Anatomy at Indiana University School of Medicine, where she teaches human gross anatomy to medical students, basic human anatomy to undergraduates, and human anatomy for medical imaging evaluation to undergraduate and graduate students. She also teaches a pedagogical methods course and mentors MS and PhD students pursuing anatomy education research. She is active in the American Association of Anatomists (AAA) and the Society for Ultrasound in Medical Education(SUSME). She currently is serving as President of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). She received the AAA Basmajian Award for excellence in teaching gross anatomy and outstanding accomplishments in scholarship in education. Valerie is coauthor of the McKinley/O’Loughlin/Bidle: Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach textbook.
