SMP Team Leaders
Each student is assigned to one of the four Team Leader (who will be the source of advice on medical school application process), as well as one letter writer (below), who will write a letter of recommendation. This academic recommendation will include grades from most of the fall classes, and will be sent to medical schools the first week of December.
Susan Mulroney, Ph.D.
The Director of the Special Master's Program, Dr. Mulroney is also director of the medical Gastrointestinal Biology course and is past director of the summer Medical Physiology course. She received her Ph.D. from Georgetown University and is a Professor in the Department of Pharmacology & Physiology. Her laboratory investigates the impact of gonadal sex on the development of diabetic renal and cardiovascular diseases, and the effects of dietary herbs on the renal, cardiovascular, and immune systems. She is co-author (with Dr Adam Myers) of the Netter's Essential Physiology textbook. Office Location: Med-Dent Building, Room NE409.
Thomas Sherman, Ph.D.
Dr. Sherman is an Associate Director of The Special Master's Program and teaches in the medical Metabolism, Signal Transduction and Nutrition course, as well as the Human Nutrition and Health course. Dr Sherman also lectures in the Human Endocrinology course. He received his Ph.D. from University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center, and is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmacology & Physiology. His research interests include: neuroendocrine regulation of hypothalamic vasopressin and oxytoxin gene expression; molecular mechanisms of steroid hormone receptor expression and of steroid hormone feedback on neuropeptide genes. Office location: Med-Dent Building, Room NE407.
Jennifer (Rogers) Whitney, Ph.D.
Dr Whitney is an Associate Director of The SMP, and received her Ph.D. in Physiology from Georgetown University. She is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology & Physiology. She teaches the non-cadaveric Gross Anatomy lectures for the Cardiopulmonary Biology, GI Biology, and Sexual Development & Reproduction courses, and is also Course Director for the Advanced Physiology & Pathophysiology graduate course. Dr Whitney also is director of the summer Medical Physiology course for GSMI. Her research interests are on growth homone-mediated sex differences in diabetic renal disease. Office Location: Med-Dent Building, Room NE404.
Adam Myers, Ph.D.
Professor, Associate Dean and Assistant Vice President for Special Programs
Dr Myers is an Associate Dean and Assistant Vice President at the Medical Center, developing and implementing new biomedical graduate programs. He has previously served as Associate Dean of Biomedical Graduate Education, as well as Director of the Special Master's Program, and continues to contribute to the Program as a Team Leader. In addition, Dr. Myers teaches the cardiovascular portion of the medical Cardiopulmonary Biology course, and has spearheaded the development of the biomedical graduate programs at the Georgetown/George Mason partnership (GeorgeSquared). He received his Ph.D. from Georgetown University, and is a Professor in the Department of Pharmacology & Physiology. His research interests are: cellular mechanisms of platelet and vascular function; mechanisms and mediators of shock, ischemia, and thrombosis; alcohol and platelet function. He is co-author (with Dr Susan Mulroney) of the Netter's Essential Physiology textbook. Office Location: Med-Dent Building, Room NE405.
SMP Academic Coordinator
Ms Richards is coordinator of the SMP. She received her BS degree from Radford University.
