Biographical Information


Dr. Woodbury came to RVUCOM-SU from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS), where he was an Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Cell Biology.  His research focused on gene regulation and stem cell biology.  He is a Co-founder of AmnioChor Inc., a regenerative medicine startup.

At RWJMS, Dr.Woodbury lectured on a wide range of topics from Histology to Gross Anatomy to Neuroscience in the MD, PA and Graduate Programs.  He is intrigued with the ability of medical illustration and animation to convey information in an engaging and memorable fashion, and frustrated by his nascent skills that fail to fully exploit this potential.
