About the author (2009)

Jeremy M. Berg ist Direktor des National Institute of General Medical Sciences an den National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Bis 2003 stand er der Abteilung f??r Biophysik und Biophysikalische Chemie an der School of Medicine der Johns Hopkins University vor. Er hat bei Lubert Stryer studiert und an der Harvard University promoviert. F??r seine Forschungen wie auch f??r seine Lehre sind ihm zahlreiche Preise verliehen worden, darunter der Eli Lilly Award f??r biochemische Grundlagenforschung. Er ist auch Co-Autor (mit Stephen Lippard) des Lehrbuchs "Principles of Bioinorganic Chemistry," John L. Tymoczko ist Towsley-Professor f??r Biologie am Carleton College und unterrichtet dort unter anderem Biochemie, Molekulare Tumorbiologie und Bioenergetik. Seine Forschungsschwerpunkte sind Steroidrezeptoren, Ribonucleoproteinpartikel und proteolytische Enzyme. Lubert Stryer, der Begr??nder dieses 1975 erstmals erschienenen und weltweit gesch??tzten Lehrbuches, ist Winzer-Professor (Emeritus) an der School of Medicine und Professor f??r Neurobiologie (Emeritus) an der Stanford University. Seit 1984 ist er Mitglied der National Academy of Sciences der USA. Zu seinen zahlreichen Auszeichnungen z??hlen der Eli Lilly Award f??r biochemische Grundlagenforschung, der Distinguished Inventors Award der Intellectual Property Owners' Association und der Molecular Bioanalytics Award. Stryer ist heute unter anderem als Vorsitzender des wissenschaftlichen Beirats zweier Biotechnologie-Unternehmen - Affymax, Inc., und Senomyx, Inc. - t??tig.
