Genetics Q & A
My two college degrees were from Harvard College (A.B.) and the University of California (Ph.D., Berkeley). Academic positions I’ve had were at the University of Minnesota (Dept. of Zoology) and the University of Miami (Coral Gables, Florida, Dept. of Biology). My teaching specialties at the undergraduate level were in molecular and cell biology, general genetics, and human genetics. I’ve held research grants from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the American Cancer Society. I am a current member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a former member of the American Society of Human Genetics, the Genetics Society of America, the American Society for Cell Biology, and the Electron Microscopy Society of America.

“One can have the clearest and most complete knowledge of what is, and yet not be able to deduct from that what should be the goal of our human aspirations. Objective knowledge provides us with powerful instruments for the achievements of certain ends, but the ultimate goal itself and the longing to reach it must come from another source.”
--- Albert Einstein, The Religious Spirit of Science (1934)
