About the Author

Bastien D. Gomperts


"Signal Transduction is indispensable for modern life sciences." -BIOELECTROCHEMISTRY (April 2003) "...most useful to senior undergrad and grad students entering the field, but will also provide a valuable reference for established researchers." -CELL "The text is strikingly comprehensive...Written with a single voice, the chapters integrate elegantly with one another, and provide the reader with both broad and comprehensive viewpoints...Remarkably current and up-to-date, the book promises to be a core text for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in cell signaling and molecular cell biology, and a valuable reference book for all scientists whose work involves mechanisms of cell communication." -Michael B. Yaffe, M.I.T.
