Dr. Jonathan J. Wisco is Associate Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Translational Anatomy of Degenerative Diseases and Developmental Disorders, Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at Boston University School of Medicine. The lab is interested in the histological validation of innovative imaging and surgical techniques related to various anatomic pathologies including Alzheimer’s disease, subglottic stenosis, prostate cancer, and synovial joint disorders. In addition to basic science research, Dr. Wisco is interested in the educational scholarship of teaching and learning, notably in the spaces of curriculum design, faculty development, learning tools innovation, and service-learning. He directs the national program, Anatomy Academy, which was established in 2012 to teach anatomy, physiology and nutrition concepts to elementary school children as an effort to combat the obesity epidemic through educational intervention, and to inspire kids to pursue science as a career.
