Creating a Learning Environment to Promote Intellectual and Personal Development

For over 20 years, Dr. Norden conducted research on nerve regeneration, focusing on GAP-43, a protein involved in nervous system development, regeneration, and plasticity. Since 1998, she has devoted her time to medical, graduate, and undergraduate education. She is currently the Director of Medical Education in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology. She has been a maverick in Medical Education, stressing not only intellectual, but also personal and interpersonal development in students. Her emphasis on personal development and her innovative approach in integrating "humanity" into a basic science course has been recognized at Vanderbilt, nationally and internationally. She has won every award given by medical students. Dr. Norden's teaching has been recognized nationally and internationally as well. In 2000, she was the recipient of the Robert J. Glaser Award, a national teaching award from the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society of the American Medical Association. Most recently (2010), she was awarded the John Chapman Award, a national award for Transformative Innovations in Medical Education.
