Dr Monika Zimanyi works as a Senior Lecturer in the Discipline of Anatomy and Pathology at James Cook University in Townsville.

Monika obtained a BSc(Hons) and PhD from Monash University, Melbourne, looking at the relationship between low birth weight, nephron endowment and the development of hypertension in a rat model.  She stayed on at Monash to as a postdoctoral researcher/ assistant lecturer, investigating nephorn number and size in African American and Caucasian American subjects, all the while teaching human anatomy to undergraduate MBBS, Radiography and Biomedical Science students.

At James Cook University, Monika teaches Rehabilitation Science students: Occupational Therapy, Phsyiotherapy, Speech Pathology and Sport and Exercise Science students, as well as Medical students human topographical anatomy, histology, embryology and neuroanatomy within the College of Medicine and Dentistry. 

More recently, Monika developed and now delivers an advanced human anatomy program to doctors who wish to pursue a surgical career, in the Graduate Diploma of Surgical Anatomy program.

Monika’s research is now centred on anatomy education, with a particular interest in flipped classroom delivery.
