Encyclopedia of Cell Biology
We are excited to announce the new Major Reference Work, Encyclopedia of Cell Biology will be publishing September 2015!
The Encyclopedia of Cell Biology offers a broad overview of cell biology, offering reputable, foundational content for researchers and students across the biological and medical sciences. This important work includes over 300 articles covering every aspect of cell biology, with fully annotated figures, abundant illustrations and references for further reading enabling you to advance your research. Each entry is built with a layered approach to the content, providing basic information for those new to the area and more detailed material for the more experienced researcher. With authored contributions by experts in the field and overseen by the prestigious editors-in-chief, Ralph Bradshaw and Philip Stahl, the Encyclopedia of Cell Biology provides a fully cross-referenced, one-stop resource for students, researchers, and teaching faculty across the biological and medical sciences.

About the Editors-in-Chief
Ralph A Bradshaw is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of California, Irvine. Prior to that he was on the faculty of the Department of Biological Chemistry, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO and was Professor and Chair of the Department of Biological Chemistry at University of California, Irvine. From 2006 to 2015, he was a member of the Mass Spectrometry Facility and Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of California, San Francisco. He holds degrees from Colby College and Duke University and was a post-doctoral fellow at Indiana University and the University of Washington. He has served as president of FASEB, was the founding president of the Protein Society and was the treasurer of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. His research has focused on protein chemistry and proteomics, with emphasis on the structure and function of growth factors and their receptors, particularly nerve growth factor and fibroblast growth factor, and the involvement of receptor tyrosine kinases in cell signaling. He has also studied the role of proteolytic processing and N-terminal modification in protein stability and turnover
Philip D Stahl is E. Mallinckrodt Jr. Professor Emeritus at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO. He was educated at West Virginia University with post-doctoral work at Vanderbilt University. He served as Head of the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology and Director of the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences at Washington University. He has been the recipient of many awards including a MERIT award from the NIH and the WICB Senior Recognition award given by the American Society for Cell Biology in recognition of his work supporting the advancement of women in science. Among StahlLab contributions are the discovery of the lysosomal enzyme clearance pathway now implemented in the treatment of lysosomal storage disease, discovery of the innate immune receptor, the mannose receptor, discovery of the exosome secretion pathway, and the role of Rab5 and Arf6 in endocytosis. Currently his research focuses on endocytosis, signal transduction, and exosome biogenesis and secretion.
Biomedicine & Biochemistry
The disciplines of biomedicine and biochemistry impact the lives of millions of people every day. Research in these areas has led to practical applications in cardiology, cancer treatment, respiratory medicine, drug development, and more. Interdisciplinary fields of study, including neuroscience, chemical engineering, nanotechnology, and psychology come together in this research to yield significant new discoveries. Elsevier’s biomedicine and biochemistry content spans a wide range of subject matter in various forms, including journals, books, eBooks, and online information services, enabling students, researchers, and clinicians to advance these fields.
