William J. Germann earned a Ph.D. in physiology at the University of Michigan. One of Germann's teachers at Michigan was Arthur Vander, whose commitment to education made a lasting impression and ultimately inspired him to pursue a career in undergraduate teaching. Germann currently teaches human physiology and a number of other biology courses at the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas. He believes that a teacher's job is not just to communicate information, but to inspire students to want to learn.
As chair of the Biology Department, Germann spends much of his time advising premedical students and others interested in pursuing careers in healthcare, research, or teaching. Germann's research interest is in the field of electrophysiology and ion channel regulation in epithelial cells. He is a member of the Biophysical Society, The American Association of University Professors, and the Texas Association of Advisors for Health Professions.
Cindy L. Stanfield earned both a B.S. and a Ph.D. in physiology at the University of California at Davis. She was exposed to and became fascinated by neurophysiology research as an undergraduate student. As a graduate student, Stanfield taught several physiology laboratory courses, and developed an interest in teaching. She currently teaches three undergraduate human physiology courses at the University of South Alabama, and continues with her neurophysiology research on sensory modulation. One of Stanfield's goals as a teacher is to expose students not only to the existing knowledge base, but also to the discovery of new knowledge through research experiences in the hopes that students will be excited about science. Stanfield is a member of the Society for Neuroscience, the International Associatyion for the Study of Pain, The American Pain Society, Sigm Xi, and the Golden Key Honor Society. She lives in Mobile, Alabama with her husband, Jim, and their cats and dog.
