Stuart A. Newman, Ph.D.

 

The research interests of the Newman laboratory center around three main program areas: cellular and molecular mechanisms of vertebrate limb developmentphysical 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)), with Karl J. Niklas of Multicellularity: Origins and Evolution (MIT Press, 2016), and co-author, with Gabor Forgacs, of Biological Physics of the Developing Embryo(Cambridge University Press, 2005). He writes occasional commentaries on science and society for HuffPost.
