stinguish and manipulate distinct populations of neural cells. He used this approach to identify and purify oligodendrocyte precursor cells and to study the intracellular programs and intercellular signals that regulate their development; he showed, for example, how a novel intracellular timing mechanism helps control cell numbers by influencing when the precursor cells stop dividing and differentiate. Dr. Raff is a past president of the British Society of Cell Biology and was the first chairman of the UK Life Sciences Committee. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, the British Academy of Medical Sciences, and the Academia Europaea, a Foreign Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a Foreign Associate of the National Academy of Sciences. He has received the Feldberg Prize and honorary degrees from McGill University and the Free University of Brussels. He is a co-author of two widely used cell biology textbooks, Molecular Biology of the Cell and Essential Cell Biology.

In Applied Biotechnology: Paul Greengard, PhD, Vincent Astor Professor, Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, The Rockefeller University, was awarded the 2000 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his contributions to elucidating how neurotransmitters work in signal transduction in the nervous system. His recent work has elucidated the molecular defects responsible for various neurological and psychiatric disorders and determined the exact targets at which neuro- and psychoactive drugs exert their pharmacological actions. His lab has shown that errors in the biochemical steps that underlie this communication play a role in disorders as varied as Alzheimer's disease and depression. Recent research has also showed that a gene called p11 is closely related to serotonin transmission in the brain and may play a key role in determining susceptibility to depression. His newest work is also bringing products from the bench to the bedside. Intra-Cellular Ther
