Stuart A. Newman

The research interests of the Newman laboratory center around three main program areas: cellular and molecular mechanisms of vertebrate limb development, physical mechanisms of morphogenesis, and evolution of developmental mechanisms. Other areas of interest include protein structure-function relationships and the social and cultural aspects of biological research and technology.  He is co-editor, with Gerd B. Müller, of Origination of Organismal Form: Beyond the Gene in Developmental and Evolutionary Biology (MIT Press, 2003), with Santiago Schnell, Philip Maini and Timothy Newman of Multiscale Modeling of Developmental Systems (Elsevier, 2007) and co-author, with Gabor Forgacs, of Biological Physics of the Developing Embryo (Cambridge University Press, 2005).

Stuart Newman received an A.B. from Columbia University and a Ph.D. in chemical physics from the University of Chicago.  He has been a visiting professor at the Pasteur Institute, Paris, the Centre à l'Energie Atomique-Saclay, Gif-sur-Yvette, the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, the University of Tokyo, and was a Fogarty Senior International Fellow at Monash University, Australia.  He was a founding member of the Council for Responsible Genetics, Cambridge, MA.
