About the author

Doug Eaton is the Distinguished Professor and Chairman of Physiology at Emory University. The goal of his research is to examine the cellular signaling mechanisms which control all aspects of cellular function including cell growth, division, and responses to external stimuli. To examine these signaling mechanisms, he uses contemporary methods of cellular and molecular biology including patch voltage clamp methods and expression of cloned signaling molecules in Xenopus oocytes and other expression systems.
