Assistant Professor-Clinical


Dr. Eileen Kalmar earned her doctorate in Neurobiology and Anatomy from the University of Rochester, NY in 1993. For the past 20 years, she has dedicated herself to sharing her knowledge of the biomedical sciences in traditional classroom settings, as well as infusing her scientific passion into an array of community leadership roles. Dr. Kalmar has taught Anatomy, Neuroscience, Histology, Embryology, and Physiology at the collegiate, graduate, and post-graduate levels. She also served as part of a Zurich-based research team focused on invitro paradigms to support spinal cord regeneration. Additionally, she extended invitro paradigms for retinal regeneration potentials.

Dr. Kalmar is currently involved with first-year Medical and Dental student anatomy education and curricula, advanced head and neck anatomy for dental residency programs, the whole body donation program, graduate anatomy education and mentoring, and continuing education for the dental profession.

With education, service and interprofessionalism constituting her personal nucleus, her current emphasis on biomedical education has afforded her opportunities to infuse the anatomical sciences through diverse roles in the community, in the College of Medicine and in the College of Dentistry.
