Michael Laskowski, professor of biology, directs the WWAMI Medical Education Program at the University of Idaho and Washington State University. The program provides medical education for the states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho through the University of Washington School of Medicine. Despite his administrative duties, Laskowski is recognized as an exceptional mentor and instructor. He specializes in developmental neuroscience, an area in which he has made, and continues to make, significant contributions. Roger Madison, Duke University Laboratory of Nerve Regeneration, writes, “Dr. Laskowski’s studies marked a turning point in our understanding of the specificity of motor neuron reinnervation of selected muscles.” Laskowski came to the University of Idaho in 1988.
