Don A Samuelson's Profile


Research Interests: My principal interests involve comparative anatomy and physiology of most organ systems of the body with special emphasis on those structures associated with marine mammals. We are currently working with sensory, reproductive, immune and integumentary systems. There are also ongoing eye-related studies associated with age-related diseases, including glaucoma and macular degeneration.

Biological - Comparative Studies of the Florida Manatee
Principal Investigator: Don A Samuelson

We are examining the histology of the Florida manatee for development of an internet atlas. In addition to performing microanatomical analysis of different organ systems, various histochemical and immunohistochemical procedures will be used to establish functional-structural correlates. The collected information will be placed on a website.

Requirements: Interests in veterinary medicine, medicine, marine biology, and/or zoology with appropriate foundation courses for pre-vet, pre-med, or zoology programs.
