Jeff Hardin

Jeff Hardin is a professor and chair of the University of Wisconsin Madison's Zoology Department. His research focuses on how cells migrate and adhere to one another in animal embryos to change their structure. Dr. Hardin's teaching is aided by his wide use of digital microscopy and his Web-based teaching tools, which are used on numerous universities across the United States and abroad. Dr. Hardin was a founding member of the University of Wisconsin Teaching Academy as part of his interest in teaching biology. He is currently the academic director of the Biology Core Curriculum, a four-semester undergraduate honors biology curriculum.

A Lily Teaching Fellowship and a National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award are among his teaching honors. He is also the curator of WormClassroom, a digital initiative that promotes the use of C, and is on the editorial board of CBE: Biological Sciences Education. elegans in college laboratories and classrooms Gregory Bertoni has over 25 years of experience in teaching, research, and scientific writing.

He is a Ph.D. holder. He earned his Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Wisconsin Madison, where he taught biochemistry at the undergraduate and graduate levels, sophomore cell biology, and plant physiology. He also assisted in the creation of a new course called Ways of Knowing, which is intended to introduce incoming freshmen to the learning process. Studies on bacterial pathogenicity, plant-microbe interactions, and plant gene expression have all been published by him.

Dr. Bertoni is a science editor for The Plant Cell, a major plant cell and molecular biology research magazine. His responsibilities include engaging with authors all around the world to ensure that papers published are correct and accessible to both general and expert readers. Over the past ten years, he has also been teaching biology and medical microbiology at Columbus State Community College in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Bertoni is also a freelance scientific writer who has worked on text and web-based projects in biology, physics, and microbiology, and is now assisting authors with manuscript preparation.

Thurnau Professor Emeritus of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology at the University of Michigan, where he has worked since his Ph.D. In 1968, he graduated from Rockefeller University. His teaching experience includes introductory biology, cell biology, and cancer biology classes, and his research interests include cancer cell growth control, the role of protein phosphorylation in eukaryotic gene regulation, and gene expression control during development.

He is the author of Principles of Cancer Biology, as well as other award-winning instructional software tools, among his many works. His awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Henry Russell Award, a Michigan Distinguished Service Award, recognition from the Michigan Students Association for exceptional teaching, an NIH Plain Language Award, and the EDUCOM Higher Education Software Awards Competition's Outstanding Curriculum Innovation Award.
