Margaret A. McNulty

Margaret A. McNulty, PhD

Assistant Professor of Anatomy, Cell Biology & Physiology


Dr. McNulty received her PhD from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, then pursued a research-intensive post-doctoral fellowship at Rush University Medical Center. She taught anatomy to professional veterinary students and maintained a research program in both orthopaedics and education at Louisiana State University's School of Veterinary Medicine before joining the Anatomy & Cell Biology faculty in early 2017. She currently teaches anatomy to various student cohorts, including graduate, allied health, and medical students, in addition to continuing her research in orthopaedics and education.
