Editorial Reviews

Review

“Beautifully written, inspiring philosophical prose presenting a delightful muse on the microscopic world that matters more than we ever before imagined.”
—Spencer Shorte, PhD, group leader and director of the Imagopole resource at the Institut Pasteur in Paris

“A bird's-eye view of the amazing edifice upon which life was built, the cell. Joshua Z. Rappoport gives a brilliant account of how it works, how humans discovered it, and the consequences for life on earth.”
—Steve Busby, FRS, University of Birmingham UK

“Nicely conveys the historical background behind classical benchmarks in cell biology, and the excitement of recent advances in visualizing the inner workings of our cells.”
—Mark Pallen, MD, PhD, author of The Rough Guide to Evolution and professor of Microbial Genomics at Warwick Medical School

About the Author

Dr. Joshua Z. Rappoport received a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Brown University and then went on to earn a Ph.D. from the Program in Mechanisms of Disease and Therapeutics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine Graduate School of Biological Sciences of New York University. Following defense of his thesis Dr. Rappoport went on to perform postdoctoral work at The Rockefeller University in New York City in the Laboratory of Cellular Biophysics. Subsequently he was recruited as a tenured faculty member in the School of Biosciences at the University of Birmingham in England.

In 2014 Dr. Rappoport has returned to the United States where he is currently the Director of the Center for Advanced Microscopy and Nikon Imaging Center at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, and a faculty member in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology. Dr. Rappoport’s scientific perspective aims to develop and apply cutting edge microscopy to address fundamental questions in cell biology.

Dr. Rappoport lives in Chicago with his wife Ema, a neuroscientist, and their dog Kris.
