I am Charles John Palenik and I live in Indianapolis, Indiana. My undergraduate degree was in biology. My graduate training was in medical and oral microbiology and immunology, preventive dentistry, health promotion and instructional systems technology.
In 2011, I retired after working for 35 years at Indiana University School of Dentistry. Much of my teaching and research dealt with microbiology, infectious disease, infection prevention and control and instructional/educational design and assessment and involved graduate and undergraduate dental students, dental hygiene and assisting students and undergraduate students (HIV/AIDS and STDs).
My research and instruction produced 253 manuscripts, 350 monographs, ten book chapters and training manuals and four book editions. A goodly amount of my publications involved researchers outside the United States. This involved protocol design, research application, analyses of results and preparation of manuscripts. Being a native English speaker with extensive writing experience, I served as the prime writer/editor. Over the last twenty years, I have served as a manuscript reviewers for twenty-four journals, which involved over 200 reviews.
