People in Cell Biology

From CellBiology

Introduction

This is not an extensive list of Cell Biology researchers. It is designed to give undergraduate science and medical students insight into some "well known" researchers who have been interviewed or provided online biographies.

--M.hill 19:29, 19 March 2009 (EST) This page has begun with links to J Cell Biology People & Ideas sections and has a USA orientation. I would hope in the future to add some scientists from not only other countries, but also other times.

Scientists by Research Area

How To Get A Research Job in Academia and Industry

This is a USA-specific PDF version handbook available from ASCB for download, written and copyrighted by Dr. Susan Goldhor in 1976. Revised in 1989, 1993 and again in 1996, and intended for postdoctoral level researchers seeking a position with a large research component. However, information for students at earlier stages of their careers is also included to help prepare them for their first “real job” hunt.
