John is Interim Associate Dean for Graduate Programs in the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, IUPUI. Schild received B.S. and M.S. degrees from Case Western Reserve University (Biomedical Engineering) with graduate study involving RF power and communications circuit design for implantable functional electrical stimulation systems restoring hand and arm control in paralyzed individuals. Interests in neural control of motor function were further developed in a clinical neurophysiological research facility quantifying residual motor control following spinal cord or closed-head injury.

As a Shell Foundation Predoctoral Fellow, Schild then completed his Ph.D. (concentration: Bioengineering) at Rice University. Before coming to IUPUI in 1998, he was a postdoc in the departments of Physiology and Pharmacology at Baylor College of Medicine and Oregon Health Sciences University under an NRSA Fellowship from the NIH. Broad interests surrounding neural control of the heart has led Schild to purse clinically relevant questions concerning sexual dimorphism in autonomic control of cardiovascular reflexes. At IUPUI these efforts have been continuously funded through grants from the American Heart Association, The Whitaker Foundation and most recently the NHLBl of the NIH (HL081819 and HL072012).
