Program Director Appointed for the Master of Modern Anatomical Sciences

I am pleased to announce that Erin Franks, Ph.D., has been appointed program director for the Master of Modern Anatomical Sciences (MAS) graduate program effective retroactive to Jan. 1, 2022.

Dr. Franks, an assistant professor in the Department of Anatomy & Neurobiology, has been involved as a faculty member in the MAS graduate program since 2020. The MAS program is a one-year graduate program designed to provide foundational medical education to train the next generation of healthcare providers.

The MAS program offers coursework in biomedical sciences that includes clinical and research-based imaging training in general radiology, ultrasonography, computer tomography, magnetic resonance and nuclear medicine imaging.

The curriculum and clinical experiences are complementary, with a culminating capstone project. As program director, Dr. Franks is primarily responsible for student success, and the overall direction of this graduate program as it aligns with our University mission.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Franks on her new role.

Submitted by Steven P. Schmidt, Ph.D., vice president for research, dean of the College of Graduate Studies and professor of pharmaceutical sciences.
