Jefferson Frisbee to present Anatomy and Physiology Seminar
Jefferson C. Frisbee, professor and chair of the medical biophysics department at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario, will present "Reversing Peripheral Vasculopathy in Metabolic Disease: How to Restore System Behavior?" as part of the Anatomy and Physiology Seminar series. His presentation will start at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, in the Mara Conference Center, 407 Trotter Hall.
Frisbee completed his doctorate in biophysics (physiology) from the University of Guelph and postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Washington (cardiovascular bioengineering) and the Medical College of Wisconsin (microvascular physiology). After several years as an assistant professor at Medical College of Wisconsin, Frisbee was recruited to the West Virginia University Health Sciences Center in the department of physiology and pharmacology.
Subsequent to the establishment and expansion of his research program at West Virginia University, Frisbee was named director of the Center for Cardiovascular and Respiratory Sciences and for the Clinical and Translational Sciences Doctoral Program. Frisbee also serves as the editor-in-chief of the journal Microcirculation, and has extensive experience on study sections for the National Institutes of Health, the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association.
