Bio for Carson Cornbrooks, Ph.D. Carson Cornbrooks, Ph.D.Associate ProfessorDepartment of Neurological Sciences Contact Information E-mail: Carson.Cornbrooks@uvm.eduOffice Location: Neurological Sciences, Given Building, C427 B, Burlington, VT Education1977-1982: Postdoctoral training, Washington University1997: Ph.D., Medical College of VirginiaAcademic InterestsI have teaching responsibilities in the VIC for medical and graduate students and in the undergraduate ANPS 20 course. For the VIC, I am the Director of the Connections Course for second year medical students and am responsible for the presentation of Histology in the first year Human Structure and Function course. I also am a small group facilitator for a case discussion group in the VIC Neural Course. I present numerous lectures on organ systems in the Anatomy and Physiology course for undergraduate students and lecture in two seminar courses offered in the Neuroscience Graduate Program curriculum.Research Interests Although I no longer have an independent laboratory, I still maintain a strong interest in Schwann cell development and function, especially the role of Schwann cells in the response to peripheral nerve injury.
