Ray Gasser | Raymond F. Gasser, Ph.D.
Ray Gasser | Raymond F. Gasser, Ph.D. Raymond Frank Gasser, Ph.D. Ray Gasser Dr. Ray Gasser's professional career has been devoted primarily to teaching medical students and residents, and to the study of human embryology. For the past 11 years he has focused on preserving the treasured Carnegie Collection of human embryos and making the microscopic sections available on computer disks. Dr. Gasser was born on September 13, 1935 in Cullman, Alabama. After receiving his B.S. degree from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama, he attended and received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Alabama Graduate School at the Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama in 1962 and 1965, respectively. After graduation he joined the faculty as an Instructor at Louisiana State University, School of Medicine in New Orleans in 1965. He rose through the ranks to Full Professor in 1974. After retiring in 2003 he was rehired and appointed both Professor Emeritus and Professor of Clinical Anatomy at LSU. During his career he served as a Research Associate for the Southwest Foundation in San Antonio, Texas and was a Consultant for Stedman's Medical Dictionary. He served as Associate Dean for Student Affairs at LSU, and Visiting Investigator or Visiting Professor at the Carnegie Institution of Embryology, Anatomisches Institute der Universität Göttingen, U. of Washington, Nihon University, Columbia University and Cambridge University (England). During his career of more than 40 years, he was course director and taught Human Prenatal Development and Gross Anatomy to medical and graduate students. He also taught residents and fellows in Urology, ENT, Neurosurgery, Ob-Gyn, Pediatrics, and Neuropsychiatry. For these efforts he received more than 20 teaching awards, variously named, from first-year, second- year, and graduating medical students. Dr. Gasser's publications have been primarily in human embryology, numbering more than 130 abstracts, research papers, books, and book chapters. More recently, he has been immersed in the effort of digitizing and making available on computer discs the microscopic, cross-sectional morphology of human embryos from the Carnegie Collection at all 23 stages. This NIH sponsored project is located on the Internet at: virtualhumanembryo@lsuhsc.edu. From this effort he discovered that, contrary to current concepts, active cellular migration during embryonic development is often unnecessary when a central reference point is used and the size and shape changes of the embryo are considered from one stage to the next.

Dr. Raymond F. Gasser - AACA Honored Member for 2010 at the annual meeting in Honolulu.
Dr. Raymond F. Gasser (right) receives the Honored Member scroll at the AACA Awards Banquet in Honolulu on July 22, 2010 from AACA President Dr. Todd Olson. Ray Gasser's professional career has been devoted to teaching and the study of human embryology. He has dedicated himself in recent years to the organization and preservation of our treasured Carnegie archives of the development of our species. Ray was born September 13, 1935 in Cullman, Alabama. After receiving his B.S. degree from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama, he attended and received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Alabama Graduate School at the Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama in 1962 and 1965, respectively. After graduation Ray joined the faculty at the Louisiana State University, School of Medicine in New Orleans in 1965. He rose through the ranks to Full Professor in 1974. Retiring in 2003 he was then rehired and appointed both Professor Emeritus and Professor of Clinical Anatomy at LSU. He has been a Visiting Investigator or Visiting Professor at the Carnegie Institution of Embryology in Washington, D.C., Anatomisches Institute der Universitat Gottingen, in Germany, University of Washington in Seattle, Nihon University in Tokyo, Japan, Columbia University in New York and Cambridge University in England. During his career of over 40 years, he taught Human Prenatal Development, and Gross Anatomy annually to medical and graduate students. He also regularly taught residents and fellows in Urology, ENT, Neurosurgery, Ob-Gyn, Pediatrics, and Neuropsychiatry. For these efforts he received over 20 teaching awards, variously named, from first year, second year, and graduating medical students. In 2003 he received the LSU Medical Center's Excellence in Teaching Basic Science Award. Ray's primary area of research has been human embryology, numbering over 130 abstracts, research papers, books and book chapters. More recently, he has been involved in digitizing and making available on CD's and DVD's, the microscopic, cross-sectional morphology of human embryos in the Carnegie Collection at all 23 stages. This project, called the Virtual Human Embryo, has received NIH support for the past nine years. From this effort he discovered that commonly held migratory activity during embryonic development is often unnecessary and probably does not occur. By using a central reference point and keeping magnifications the same from one stage to the next, he found that sclerotomal cells do not migrate medially and the neural crest precursors of spinal ganglia do not migrate ventrally. In 1996 the International Federation of Anatomy Associations (IFAA) appointed Ray to the Federative International Committee for Anatomical Terminology (FICAT). He devoted most of his effort to the recommended list of human embryology terms (TE) that will be published soon. He has been a member of the American Association of Clinical Anatomy from its inception, the American Association of Anatomy and the Royal Society of Medicine. For many years he served on the Editorial Boards of the Anatomical Record and Clinical Anatomy journals. Because of his accomplishments Ray has been selected the 2010 AACA's, Honored Member.
