(note name change from Maureen Estevez to Maureen Stabio in 2014)

I earned my doctorate in Anatomy & Neurobiology at Boston University School of Medicine and completed postdoctoral training in the Neuroscience Department at Brown University. My research training is in visual neuroscience with expertise in photoreceptor physiology and retinal circuitry. Throughout my research training I have combined my love of anatomy with a strong interest in electrophysiological research techniques to study the structure and function of the retina; I consider myself a classically trained anatomists with a robust physiological toolbox. During my research training I also maintained active teaching practice. I hold teaching certificates from Boston University and Brown University, and have won several teaching awards for curriculum development and teaching excellence.

I am currently an assistant professor at University Colorado School of Medicine. I teach neuroanatomy to medical students as well as master's students in the Modern Human Anatomy program. I maintain active pedagogical research with a strong interest in the development and assessment of 3D learning tools for neuroanatomy. I am also lead science outreach efforts for local middle and high school students.

In my free time I spend time with my family, rock climb and hike. I am the president on the Board of Directors for a non-profit foundation that supports education for children with disabilities in South America.
