Mark Slivkoff, PhD
Upon completion of his undergraduate coursework at the University of California (Riverside), Dr. Slivkoff began his graduate studies in physiology in the Department of Biology at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico. After receiving his PhD in comparative animal physiology, Dr. Slivkoff continued his studies as a postdoctoral fellow within the medical school at the University of Arizona. Thereafter, he focused his academic energy on teaching, and has done so up to the present day. Over the past 13+ years, he has held faculty positions at various colleges and universities located in the United States and in the Caribbean. He has recently returned to his favorite part of the world--the Southwest--as one of our newest basic science faculty members at SOMA. He resides in Mesa with his wife and daughter.
