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.

“The observer, when he seems to himself to be observing a stone, is really, if physics is to be believed, observing the effects of the stone upon himself. Thus science seems to be at war with itself: when it most means to be objective, it finds itself plunged into subjectivity against its will. Naïve realism leads to physics, and physics, if true, shows that naïve realism is false.” – Bertrand Russell, An Inquiry into Meaning and Truth (1950)
