He joined the faculty the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco in 1976. He is one of the original authors of The Molecular Biology of the Cell, through four editions the leading advanced textbook in this important field. His most recent text, Essential Cell Biology (2003), is intended to present this subject matter to a wider audience. Dr. Alberts has long been committed to the improvement of science education, dedicating much of his time to educational projects such as City Science, a program that seeks to improve science teaching in San Francisco elementary schools.
Paul R. Gray is UC Berkeley's Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost and holds the Andrew S. Grove Chair in Electrical Engineering. He joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at Berkeley in 1971. His research interests have included bipolar and MOS circuit design, electro thermal interactions in integrated circuits, device modeling, telecommunications circuits, and analog-digital interfaces in VLSI systems. In 2004 he received the IEEE James H. Mulligan, Jr. Education Medal. He has served as President of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Council and is a member of the National Academy of Engineering. Professor Gray is the co-author of a widely used college textbook on analog integrated circuits. During year-long industrial leaves of absence from Berkeley, he served as Project Manager for Telecommunications Filters at Intel and as Director of CMOS Design Engineering at Microlinear Corporation. Professor Gray received the BS, MS, and PhD degrees from the University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona.
Daniel Greenstein is Associate Vice Provost and University Librarian of the California Digital Library (CDL). Prior to his arrival at the CDL in 2002, Daniel Greenstein held positions as the director of the Digital Library Federation (DLF) in Washington D.C. and faculty in modern history at Glasgow University. He is founding director of the Arts and Humanities Data Service of the United Kingdom, where he led the strategic and operational development of a digital information service to support arts and humanities research and teaching at higher education institutions in the U.K. He earned a BA and MA from the University of Pennsylvania and a PhD from Oxford.
Lawrence Lessig is Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and one of the founders of the Creative Commons project. He teaches and writes in the areas of constitutional law, contracts, comparative constitutional law, and the law of cyberspace. He is the author of Free Culture: How Big Media Uses Technology and the Law to Lock Down Creativity (2004) and numerous legal articles, and he has a regular column in Wired magazine. He clerked for Judge Richard Posner on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and for Justice Antonin Scalia on the United States Supreme Court. Most recently, he represented website operator Eric Eldred in the ground-breaking case Eldred v. Ashcroft, a challenge to the 1998 Sony Bono Copyright Term Extension Act. He was named one of Scientific American's Top 50 Visionaries, for arguing "against interpretations of copyright that could stifle innovation and discourse online." Professor Lessig earned a BA in economics and a BS in management from the University of Pennsylvania, an MA in philosophy from Cambridge, and a JD from Yale.
