At Oregon State University I am a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Biochemistry/Biophysics at Oregon State University. Download my CV HERE. Indira Rajagopal and I co-authored two popular OER biochemistry books and a third book offering advice on getting into medical school.. The biochemistry book is for students at all levels and is called "Biochemistry Free For All". Taralyn Tan was also a co-author. It can be downloaded in a PDF format HERE and in an iBooks format (for iPads and Macs) HERE. The second is a basic biochemistry book titled "Biochemistry Free and Easy," that can be downloaded for free HERE and the third is a book for pre-medical students entitled "Kevin and Indira's New Guide to Getting Into Medical School." It is available as an e-book and as a printed book. Links for purchasing it are HERE. I also create the Metabolic Melodies, the Mildly Popular Limericks, A Turn for the Verse, and Kevin Ahern's One Lie-ners. A compilation book (called "Rhymes and Misdemeanors") of all of these efforts that is current as of April 1, 2020 can be purchased HERE. Links to various other groups of my books are HERE and below.

I was very honored to be recognized as a semi-finalist for the 2016 and the 2018 Robert Foster Cherry Award for Great Teaching by Baylor University. Read more about it HERE and HERE.

I have also made a set of 36 biochemistry lecture videos for The Great Lectures (HERE), another set aimed at medical students for Lecturio (HERE) and an audio series with advice for getting into medical school with Listenable (HERE).

As a Professor Emeritus at OSU, I teach three ecampus classes every term (BB 350, BB 450/550, and BB 451/551). I am a provider of electronic delivery of instruction in biochemistry and have over 700 videos on YouTube that have been watched over 5 million times. You can see my YouTube channel HERE. You can take my iTunes U classes for free HERE and HERE and HERE. You can enroll in my ecampus courses as follows: BB 350 / BB 450/550 / BB 451/551.

From 2004 to 2011, I was a Contribufting Editor for BioTechniques and wrote the monthly "WebWatch" colummn. From 1997 to 2009, I wrote a twice monthly column in Genetic Engineering News entitled "Best of the Web." From 1998 to 2003 I was a contributing editor to Science Magazine and from 1987 to 1998, I served as editor of "Biotechnology Software and Internet Journal". I was a co-author of the popular "Biochemistry" textbook (Mathews, van Holde, and Ahern - HERE), published by Addison-Wesley Longman in 2000. I also provided the material for the General Resources pages of Science Magazine's Online Functional Genomics Web Page. I have over 700 publications and you can see the list HERE.

Back in the 1990s, I invented a novel way of amplifying DNA using only a single primer. It is known as Boomerang DNA amplification and the patent info for it is HERE. In 1997, I started DaVinci Press Ink, the digital publishing company that runs this site. In 2011, I started performing weddings (and writing wedding music and wedding toasts)

I grew up in Fowler, IL, wrote a book about it (HERE), attended Unity High School in Mendon, IL and graduated from C.E. Donart High School (now called Stillwater High School) in Stillwater, OK. I received my B.S. and M.S. from Oklahoma State University, and my Ph.D. from Oregon State University.
