Description

Metamorphosis addresses various facets of postembryonic development, particularly signal transduction, morphogenesis, cell-cell interactions, and programmed cell death. A key feature of the book is its exploration of the molecular mechanisms underlying these processes.

Lawrence Gilbert

Lawrence I. Gilbert is William Rand Kenan jr. Professor of Biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has served on many national and international committees in the areas of insect biochemistry, physiology and more recently, molecular biology. Dr. Gilbert has been the author or coauthor of about 300 research publications and books and has received many awards for his professional work. These include the Lifetime Mentor Award of the American Assn. for the Advancement of Science, the Gregor Mendel Award from the Czech Academy of Sciences, the Jefferson Award (highest award given by the University of North Carolina, and is an elected fellow of the American Academy for Arts and Sciences, the Entomological Society of America and the AAAS. During his career he has mentored 34 doctoral students and 55 post-doctoral associates and visiting scholars. His research has been continually supported by grants from NIH and/or NSF.
