Description

Steroids is a thematic volume from the classic Academic Press series, Vitamins and Hormones. Gerald Litwack, the new editor of this prestigious serial, brings together leading contributors to the study of steroids. These structurally and functionally complex molecules are of interest to a broad cross-section of endocrinologist, cell biologists, and biochemists. Reviews include studies of structure, function, and regulation of steroid production and action. Thus, Vitamins and Hormones continues to publish cutting-edge reviews of interest to endocrinologists and biochemists. Others will increasingly turn to this continuing series for comprehensive reviews by leading researchers in this and related disciplines.

Carnell Professor. Subsequently he was appointed chair of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at the Jefferson Medical College as well as Vice Dean for Research and Deputy Director of the Jefferson Cancer Institute and Director of the Institute for Apoptosis. Following the move of his family, he became a Visiting Scholar at the Department of Biological Chemistry of the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and then became the Founding Chair of the Department of Basic Sciences at the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, becoming Professor of Molecular and Cellular Medicine and Associate Director of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at the Texas A&M Health Science Center as his final position. During his career he was a visiting scientist at the University of California, San Francisco and Berkeley, Courtauld Institute of Biochemistry, London and the Wistar Institute. He was appointed Emeritus Professor and/or Chair at Rutgers University, Thomas Jefferson University and the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine.
