BeschreibungSteroids is a thematic volume from the classic Academic Press series, Vitamins and Hormones. Gerald Litwack, the new editor of this prestigious serial, brings together leading contributors to the study of steroids. These structurally and functionally complex molecules are of interest to a broad cross-section of endocrinologist, cell biologists, and biochemists. Reviews include studies of structure, function, and regulation of steroid production and action. Thus, Vitamins and Hormones continues to publish cutting-edge reviews of interest to endocrinologists and biochemists. Others will increasingly turn to this continuing series for comprehensive reviews by leading researchers in this and related disciplines.

PortraitTrained in biochemistry at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Dr. Litwack worked on enzymology and the effects of hormones on enzyme systems. Then he was a Postdoctoral Fellow of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis at the Biochemical Institute of the Sorbonne in Paris. Dr. Litwack's first position was as Assistant Professor of Biochemistry at Rutgers University in 1954. Six years later, he joined the University of Pennsylvania as associate professor and four years later went to the Fels Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Biology, as full professor, eventually becoming Deputy Director of the Institute. In 1991, he accepted the Chair of Pharmacology at Thomas Jefferson University where he is also Deputy Director of the Jefferson Cancer Institute and Associate Director for Basic Science in the Jefferson Cancer Center. Dr. Litwack's work has been in the area of mechanisms of steroid receptor action involving especially the glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid receptors, immunophi.
