Professor Hill was an Intensive Care Nursing specialist for 13 years prior to returning to academia. He teaches courses in the pre-Nursing curriculum as well as the Nursing and Graduate Nursing curriculum that include: graduate and undergraduate Pathophysiology, graduate Pharmacology, Nursing Genomics, and Research & Evidence-based practice.  His personal research interest are the effects of environmental toxicants encountered in home and workplace on normal immune function and symptom management in presence and absence of pulmonary comorbidities. His specific focus is the toxicology of small molecule aromatic hydrocarbons, arsenicals and metalloids in drinking water to the epithelium of the pulmonary tree and the dermis, as well as effects on signal transduction/biochemical functions of the innate immune response and wound healing. Investigations utilize population based, in vitro and ex vivo systems.
