Scott Carlson has been a professor in the Biology department since 2000, and he regularly teaches Human Physiology, Neuroscience, Neuroscience Seminar, and General Biology. He is also involved with a January-term course, located on the island of Roatan, Honduras, that explores how individuals can engage ethically with social and environmental challenges in the developing world. While his research has primarily centered on neural control of blood pressure and mechanisms that contribute to the development of hypertension, more recently he has focused on setting up an electrophysiology program in support of the newer Neuroscience major. He is also involved with formation of the new Global Health major at Luther College.
I have a great wife and three kids. I enjoy home design and landscaping, along with a strong interest in music and coffee.
