HAMDEN — An internationally known scientist and teacher has joined the staff of the Quinnipiac University’s School of Medicine.

Stephen Wikel of Wallingford, an expert in vector-borne diseases, assumed the position of chair of the Department of Basic Medical Science and senior associate dean for research. Wikel brings with him more than 30 years’ experience as a teacher, researcher and administrator.

In January 2010, Quinnipiac began the process of opening a medical school with an emphasis on primary care and global health. The process is expected to take several years to complete. Quinnipiac plans to enroll its first medical school class by fall 2013 or 2014. In his new role, Wikel is focusing on hiring faculty and on curriculum and course development.

Most recently Wikel was a professor of pathology and senior scientist in the Center for Tropical Diseases, Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Tex.

Over the course of his career, he has taught courses in pathobiology, immunology, medical microbiology, infectious diseases, parasitology, histology and hematology. He has also conducted cutting-edge research and been on faculty at a number of institutions including the University of South Dakota, University of North Dakota, Oklahoma State University and the University of Connecticut.
