Dr. Robert Bateman Jr., professor of biomedical sciences and associate dean for research at the William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine, has been elected to a four-year term on the executive board of the Association of Biochemistry Course Directors.
Bateman joined the Carey faculty in 2011 after previously serving on the faculty at the University of Southern Mississippi, where he also served as chairman of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. He received his doctoral degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1985 before spending three years as a postdoctoral fellow in biochemistry at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He has published over 35 scientific articles, has been awarded two patents and has received funding for his research from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the National Marine Fisheries Service and others.
The association, founded in April 2008, has a mission of bringing together course directors from all medical, pharmacy and dental schools across North America and the Caribbean to develop objectives to improve biochemistry curricula, utilize effective teaching methods, apply adult learning principles to biochemistry and provide continuing education in recent areas of biochemistry.
