He conducted National Institutes of Health (NIH)-sponsored research for more than 20 years on the molecular mechanisms of action of inhalational anesthetics and studied the effects of inhalation anesthetic agents on the processes of fertilization and early embryonic development in both model systems and mammalian embryos. He received a Research Career Development Award from NIH, did anesthesia research supported in part by Mill Hill at Northwick Park Hospital (Harrow), and was a Burroughs-Wellcome Exchange Fellow. He has published more than 70 papers and abstracts and contributed to five books. He also received numerous awards for his teaching efforts in medical gross anatomy, histology, physiology, cell biology and biochemistry.

Dr. Hinkley earned his Ph.D. in comparative biochemistry and physiology from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, and conducted his post-doctoral training in the Department of Anesthesia at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. He received his M.S. in biology and his B.S. in zoology from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.

He was tapped in 1995 for Iron Arrow, the highest honor attainable at the University of Miami, and received a “Lifetime Achievement Award” from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in 2008.
