Summary

Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology helps learners focus on the essentials of A&P, without getting sidetracked in unnecessary details. The brief and accessible text combines short, easy-to-read chapters with easy-to-follow figures to provide a near-perfect level and depth of content needed for success in the one-semester A&P course.


Author Biography

Elaine Marieb
After receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Elaine N. Marieb joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College. While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she wanted to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education,which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her textbooks and lab manuals are so well known.

Dr.Marieb passed away in 2018 after a lifetime of supporting numerous institutions and programs. Perhaps her favorite cause was helping students, especially nontraditional students, pursue their goals in science. She gave generously to provide opportunities for them to further their education by, to name just one example, funding the E. N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College. She also believed strongly in research: she underwrote the renovation of the biology labs in Clapp Laboratory at Mount Holyoke College and provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

In January 2012 and 2017, Dr. Marieb provided philanthropic support to Florida Gulf Coast University as a long-term investment in education, research, and training for health care and human service professionals in the local community. In honor of her contributions, the university is now home to the Elaine Nicpon Marieb College of Health and Human Services. Her legacy of contributing to science education lives on through the Elaine Nicpon Marieb Foundation, which provides generous support to multiple causes and organizations.

Suzanne Keller
Suzanne M. Keller began her teaching career while she was still in graduate school. Inspired by her lifelong passion for learning, Dr. Keller quickly adopted a teaching style focused on translating challenging concepts into easy-to-understand parts using analogies and stories from her own experiences. An Iowa native, Dr. Keller uses her expertise to teach microbiology and anatomy and physiology at Indian Hills Community College, where most of her students are studying nursing or other health science programs. Dr. Keller values education as a way for students to express both themselves and their values through the careers they pursue. She supports those endeavors both in and out of the classroom by financially supporting scholarships and service learning trips for students. Dr. Keller also enjoys sponsoring children in need with gifts for the holidays. Dr. Keller is a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the Iowa Academy of Science. Additionally, Dr. Keller has served on multiple advisory boards for various projects at Pearson and has authored assignments for Mastering A&P. When not teaching or writing, Dr. Keller practices energy healing and is an Usui Reiki Master Teacher. She enjoys reading, indoor rowing, gardening, travel, family gatherings, and relaxing at home under the watchful eyes of her two canine children.
