Margarent Anderson earned her Ph.D. from Stanford University.

My current interests lie in developing materials for teaching physiology, particularly in the area of excitable cells. Undergraduate students do reading research projects with me on topics in neuroendocrine physiology, excitable properties of muscle cells and selected areas of neurophysiology. They also work on developing new laboratory exercises in animal physiology. Students who already have skills in making digital videos can apply these skills to developing digital teaching materials for classes or laboratories.
