Author Biography

Elaine N. Marieb

After receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Elaine N. Marieb began teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees. Her students inspired her to gain a better understanding of the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. 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 unique perspective and accessibility for which her publications are known.


As an individual and through the Elaine Nicpon Marieb Charitable Foundation, Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. In recent years, she gave generous philanthropic support to Florida Gulf Coast University as a long-term investment in education, research, and training for healthcare and human services 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.


Lori A. Smith received her Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of California at Davis.  Before discovering her passion for teaching, she worked as a research scientist and project leader in the medical diagnostics industry. In 1999, she joined the faculty at American River College in the Biology Department, where she teaches anatomy and physiology and microbiology to students preparing for nursing or other allied health careers Since 2005, she has coauthored Pearson’s PhysioEx™ Laboratory Simulations in Physiology and has continued to coauthor several Pearson lab manuals. Dr. Smith has been named Instructor of the Year by the American River College Associated Student Body, and she is a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the California Academy of Sciences.  When not teaching or writing, she enjoys spending time with her family: hiking, cycling, and kayaking.
