THE ANATOMICAL RECORD (PART B: NEW ANAT.) 289B:85, 2006
NEWS FROM THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ANATOMISTS
Opperman to Co-chair AAA Annual Meeting;
Gregorio, Laitman, Franz-Odendaal Elected to
Board
L
ynne A. Opperman, associate
professor of biomedical sciences at Texas A&M University
System Health Science Center, has
been chosen as AAA program co-chair
and will serve in this position from
2006 to 2010.
Opperman, whose research interests include craniofacial growth and
development, intramembranous bone
growth, molecular regulation of
craniofacial suture development and
morphogenesis, succeeds Robert Tomanek in the co-chair slot. She will
share the AAA programming role with
current program co-chair Marion
“Emmy” Gordon.
In her candidate’s statement, Opperman noted that the anatomical sciences
are “undergoing an exciting resurgence
with the introduction of sophisticated
new techniques for visualizing molecular and cellular events, both in vivo and
in vitro.” As program co-chair, she
hopes to create crossover areas of interest combining physiological, molecular,
and morphological methods, both in research and in education.
Also elected to the AAA Board of Directors were Carol C. Gregorio, associate professor of cell biology and anatomy, University of Arizona; Jeffrey T.
Laitman, distinguished professor, professor and director of anatomy and
functional morphology, professor of
otolaryngology, Mount Sinai School of
Medicine; and Tamara A. FranzOdendaal, postdoctoral fellow, Department of Biology, Dalhousie University.
At the AAA Annual Business Meeting held on April 3 in San Francisco,
AAA president Kathy Svoboda
thanked outgoing board members
Robert Tomanek, Chi-Bin Chien,
Rochelle Cohen, and J. Matt Velkey
for their service, presenting them each
with a certificate of appreciation.
Members also raised a glass of champagne toasting Duane E. Haines for
his service as chairman of the New
Anatomist Editorial Advisory Board
from the publication’s inception in
1998 through 2005.
