    Teaching Experience: A. The following courses have been taught by me at various times: 1. Organic chemistry I & II 6. Medicinal organic chemistry II 2. Chemistry for Allied Health Students 7. Physiology 3. General Chemistry I & II 8. Thermodynamics I & II 4. Biochemistry 9. Polymer science 5. Pharmacology (Entire PA Program, 10. Material selection course director) B. Courses and topics taught at CUNY Medical School 1999- current General Chemistry, entire course

    Organic Chemistry, selected topics As Program Director, I reorganized the courses and introduced small group study sessions, “Peer-Led Team Learning”. This has proved to be very successful. Also, students get periodic Progress Reports, which informs them of how they are doing in class and what steps are needed to improve standing. 2000-current GI Pharmacology (entire unit) 2000-2004 GI Physiology (entire unit) 2000-2002 Neuropharmacology 2002, 2005- Cardiovascular Pharmacology present Drugs used in the treatment of heart failure, hypertension,

    hypercholesterolemia 2000-2008 Conducted 10 PBL sessions each year in pharmacology, and the only PBL session in GI physiology 2002-2004 Biochemistry: Cytochrome P450s, Gluconeogenesis,

    Metabolic Interrelationships

    As Program Director, I introduced genetic disease presentations by all students, worked very closely with our own faculty and faculty from Cornell University Medical College to ensure a course that met all expectations of the National Board of Medical Examiners. I also introduced 6 PBL sessions (conducted by myself), the cases for which were purchased from Harvard Medical School. In 2003 mini-boards in biochemistry, 20% of the class scored above the 90th percentile. 2004-2009 Molecules-to-Cells: This is a new course in which I have taught the

    following topics: Protein-Ligand interactions; Receptors; Enzymes, enzyme kinetics, enzyme regulation; Glycolysis; Fatty acid synthesis, Gluconeogenesis, Major Lipids: Fatty acids, Eicosanoids; Cholesterol and its derivatives; Liporproteins and cholesterol transport, Reactive oxygen species.

    As Chair of our Curriculum Committee, I was intimately involved in the formulation of this course and its implementation. 2005- 2018 Bio-Organic Chemistry

    This is a new one-semester course which I introduced in 2005. This course integrates organic and biochemistry, diffusing the boundary between the two areas which should help better prepare our students for entry into our Molecules-to-Cells course.
