10. DEPARTMENT BY THE NUMBERS

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR R Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology newsletter, Connections. This new electronic newsletter is designed to reach out to our current Department members, alumni, former colleagues and friends on an annual basis. The goal is to use this as a means to keep everyone abreast of changes in our Department and academic programs, new additions to our

faculty and staff, and to update people on our achievements and newsworthy events. 2014 is a special year for our Department as it the 100th anniversary of the creation of our original component Departments: the Department of Physiology and the Department of Pharmacology. Because of this, we have included a history of the Departments in this newsletter to highlight some of the important dates and events in our evolution. We are proud of our history and the role that we have played over the past century in the growth of Western and our School. We will include activities that celebrate our 100th anniversary during a number of our annual events this academic year. This newsletter includes a feature on our Annual Research Day and Stevenson Lecture, and new additions we have made to the speaker line up to recognize a former and a current PhD student. We are also excited to introduce you to our newest Department faculty members in this newsletter. We are

fortunate to have recruited some bright and energetic new faculty members over the past year that both build on our current areas of strength and bring new expertise. This newsletter also celebrates some of our student, staff and faculty member award winners. Because of space limitations, we are not able to include everyone who has been recognized over the past year for their achievements in this newsletter. We are indeed fortunate to have outstanding Department members that bring honor to both themselves and our programs. Finally, on a personal note, I would like to thank you all for your dedication and commitment to our academic environment, and especially to those that worked so hard to bring Connections to fruition.

R. JANE RYLETT, PhD, FCAHS Distinguished University Professor Chair, Physiology and Pharmacology Schulich Medicine & Dentistry


CELEBRATING A 100 YEAR HISTORY He was succeeded by Dr. R. Waud who directed the department until 1960. Dr. Charles W. Gowdey became Head of the Department in 1960 and retained that position until 1981. Under the guidance of Dr. Gowdey, the department entered an expansion phase with the focus being on neuropharmacology.

PHYSIOLOGY AND PHARMACOLOGY

This year the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology marks its 100th anniversary of the creation of the two legacy departments, the Department of Physiology and the Department of Pharmacology, which were originally separate. The department as a whole has a rich history dating back to the 1900s, when Western’s medical school, now known as the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, entered a new era by establishing seven new departments. A BRIEF HISTORY: DEPARTMENT OF PHYSIOLOGY In 1914, Dr. F.R. Miller was appointed as the first full Professor of Physiology, and was involved in research, teaching, and initiating student laboratory instruction that included both human and animal experimentation. In 1947, Dr. Miller was appointed to the newly established position of Research Professor, and was briefly succeeded as Head by Professor O. E. Edholm. In 1951, Dr. J.A.F. Stevenson was appointed Professor and head of the Department of Physiology, and he served with great distinction for 19 years. During his tenure, the number of full-time faculty members increased, and teaching and research programs were reviewed and strengthened. The teaching commitment of Physiology was expanded to include students in the Faculties of Physical Education, Nursing, and Science. An Honours BSc in Physiology was also established with the first class graduating in 1969.

This focus was promoted in 1961 with recruitment of Dr. J.T. Hamilton as a lecturer and Richard B. Philp and Lewis W. Hersey as graduate students. The department began to diversify in 1980 and its name was changed to the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology to reflect the growth of toxicological research and extension of its teaching mandate. In 2001, Dr. M.A. Cook took on the role of Acting Chair and guided the department through the steps leading to the merger with the Department of Physiology. A BRIEF HISTORY: DEPARTMENT OF PHYSIOLOGY AND PHARMACOLOGY The Department of Physiology and Pharmacology was formed on July 1, 2002 as a result of the merger of the Department of Physiology and the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology. This coincided with the recruitment of Dr. J.L. Henry to Western University as Chair of the Department. With the departure of Dr. Henry in December 2004, Dr. R.J. Rylett was appointed and remains as the current Chair. In the past decade, the department has seen some major changes including updated state-of-the-art undergraduate student labs and the renaming of the graduate degree awarded by the department to read MSc or PhD in Physiology and Pharmacology. The department is currently comprised of more than 90 faculty members and cross-appointees, more than 115 graduate students and post- doctoral fellows, and more than 30 administrative and technical staff.

While several other Chairs served between the early 1970’s and the early 2000’s, Dr. S.M. Sims, who became Acting Chair in 2001 and 2002, played a key role in facilitating the merger with the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology. A BRIEF HISTORY: DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACOLOGY The Department of Pharmacology was founded in 1914 with Dr. J.M. Crane serving as Head from 1915 to 1934.

THE STEVENSON LECTURE AND RESEARCH DAY In 1972, a lecture series was created to honour the memory of Professor James A.F. Stevenson (1918-1971) who served as Chair of the Department of Physiology from 1951 to 1970. Under his dynamic leadership, the Department was expanded and teaching and research programs were strengthened. He directed a vigorous research group in Regulatory and Integrative Physiology concerned in particular with neural mechanisms in the control of water and energy balance.

of the Association of Scientific, Engineering and Technological Communities of Canada, and Editor of the Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology. He received national and international recognition for his contributions, including election as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1969. Professor Stevenson believed that physiological processes are integrated components of adaptive responses of the whole animal to environmental challenges. This was a belief he firmly held as teacher and scientist. The Stevenson Lecture is dedicated to Professor Stevenson and his commitment and contributions to the Department.

Professor Stevenson was a pioneer in organizing scientific activities as founder and then as president of the Canadian Physiological Society and of the Biological Council of Canada. He also served as the Vice President

MEET OUR NEW FACULTY MEMBERS DR. WATARU INOUE Originally from Japan, Dr. Wataru Inoue moved to Canada to pursue a PhD at McGill University. Prior to moving to London, Ontario, he conducted postdoctoral training at the University of Calgary. Dr. Inoue’s research focuses on synaptic plasticity caused by stress as an entry point to understand how we adapt or fail to adapt to stress. By using patch clamp electrophysiology and optogenetics, he studies synapses in the hypothalamus. Disregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis is closely linked to various stress-related disorders, including major depression.

DR. JAMIE KRAMER Dr. Jamie Kramer carried out the research for his PhD degree at Memorial University of Newfoundland with Dr. Brian Staveley, where he became excited about the use of D. Melanogaster as a model for human disease. He was then recruited to Radboud University in the Netherlands where he established a new fly facility for disease modeling in the Department of Human Genetics. There he studied the neuronal function of chromatin regulators that were found to be disrupted in intellectual disability. Dr. Kramer’s research led him toward his current research interest in understanding epigenetic dysregulation to human cognitive disorders. He explains that this is his dream job — he knew he wanted to be a scientist from a young age, as he always loved trying to figure things out.

DR. PETER STATHOPULOS Dr. Peter Stathopulos is a Western University alumnus who completed his MSc under the supervision of Dr. Qingping Feng on studies of L-arginine uptake during heart failure. He pursued his PhD at the University of Waterloo, investigating how protein misfolding is involved in motor neuron disease, and received postdoctoral training on the structural biology of calcium handling proteins at the Ontario Cancer Institute. Dr. Stathopulos plans to focus his research program on the molecular mechanisms of organelle-specific calcium signaling protein function in health and disease. Understanding precisely how proteins mediate signaling cascades at the atomic level opens up exciting possibilities for developing novel diagnostic tools and pharmacological regulators of these pathways.

THE MARILYN ROBINSON AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING The Department of Physiology was fortunate to have Dr. Marilyn Robinson as a faculty member for many years during the 1980’s and 90’s. Dr. Robinson was an exceptionally talented educator and an enthusiastic lecturer who was valued and respected by both colleagues and students. As an Assistant Professor in Physiology and Coordinator of the Educational Development Office, she raised the profile of teaching at Western. Dr. Robinson was also a leader in developing new educational approaches to engage students in active learning and problem solving. Her expertise was recognized with many teaching awards, including the 3M Teaching Fellowship and the Pleva Excellence in

Teaching Award. Following her untimely passing, Western established The Marilyn Robinson Award for Excellence in Teaching, awarded for the first time in the 1996-97 academic year. This Award is given annually to a junior faculty member who demonstrates excellence in teaching based on outstanding contributions in the area of classroom, laboratory, or clinical instruction. The Department of Physiology and Pharmacology is fortunate to have several early-career faculty members following in Dr. Robinson’s footsteps as outstanding educators. Three of our faculty members have won this prestigious award: Tom Stavraky in 2001-02, Dr. Anita Woods in 2012-13, and Dr. Brad Urquhart in 2013-14.

AWARD WINNING TEACHERS

TOM STAVRAKY Tom Stavraky is an outstanding classroom teacher and manager of the third-year physiology laboratories, and has consistently received high ratings for his teaching. Stavraky is renowned for his in-class demonstrations of physiological principles. Following his success as a recipient of the Marilyn Robinson Award, he was awarded the University Students’ Council Award of Excellence, 2005 Schulich Undergraduate Education Leader Award, a Fellowship in Teaching from Western’s Teaching Support Centre, and the prestigious Leadership in Faculty Teaching Award given by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

ANITA WOODS Anita Woods began her appointment in Physiology and Pharmacology in 2008, and has demonstrated a unique flare for teaching and education scholarship. She indicates that she is motivated to see light-bulb moments on students’ faces when they understand a new concept. Woods excels at using new technologies in her teaching including: real-time Twitter in lecture; both pre-lecture and review podcasts; experiential lectures; and augmented reality laboratory aids. Her contributions to Western go far beyond the classroom, with research into course evaluation and outcomes, and serving in mentorship and advisory roles.

BRAD URQUHART Brad Urquhart has been a professor in Physiology and Pharmacology since 2009, and has shown himself to be a superlative well-rounded teacher. Soon after he began his faculty appointment, Urquhart saw the need for a major course revision in the large online second-year Pharmacology course. This very popular course now incorporates many innovative teaching activities including animations and videos, as well as CSI scenarios in which students are walked through virtual crime scenes to study the pharmacological aspects of the crime. Students praise his teaching style, especially the methods he uses to engage students.
