Michael P. McKinley obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of California, and both MS and PhD degrees from Arizona State University. In 1978, he accepted a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) Medical School in the laboratory of Dr. Stanley Prusiner, the place he labored for 12 years investigating prions and prion-diseases. In 1980, he became a member of the anatomy faculty at the U.S. Medical School, where he taught medical histology for ten years while continuing to do research on prions. During this time, he was an author/co-author of more than eighty scientific papers. McKinley was a member of the biology faculty at Glendale Community College from 1991 to 2012, where he taught undergraduate anatomy and physiology, general biology, and genetics. Between 1991 and 2000, he also participated in Alzheimer disease research and served as director of the Brain Donation Program at the Sun Health Research Institute, in addition to teaching developmental biology and human genetics at Arizona State University, West. His vast expertise in histology, neuro-anatomy, and cell biology significantly shaped the related content in Human Anatomy. He retired from active teaching in 2012 and continues to be an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). Michael is coauthor of the McKinley/O’Loughlin/Bidle: Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach textbook.
