Dr. Isabel Stabile was appointed Research Scientist with the rank of Full Professor at Florida State University in 1991. During her tenure she was responsible for generating over $10,000,000 in research funding which has led to numerous publications as well as international awards. She was elected Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 2006. In 2007 she was appointed Associate Professor in the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Malta. Since 2009 she has served as Director of Studies of the Medical Foundation Programme as well as Rector's Delegate for International medical students at the University of Malta.

The final product is student-centered, vertically and horizontally integrated and builds on the success of the biomedical sciences curriculum jointly developed three years previously. The new curriculum was also designed to function within the European Credit Transfer System.
