Will Hancock - Professor of Bioengineering, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Mechanics of Motor Proteins and the Cytoskeleton

Author: Jonathon Howard

Book Description:

During my professional career I have had a number of mentors, but the person who taught me the most and who most influenced the way I approach science is my postdoctoral advisor, Joe Howard.  Joe taught me how to ask the right questions and to apply quantitative and biophysical principles to experimental problems related to motor proteins and the cytoskeleton.  He put together many of these principles into this book, which has been a very important resource for me and many of my colleagues in my field and other fields.  In honor of my gratitude to Joe for his mentorship, I would like to choose this book for the Penn State Library in recognition of my promotion to Professor of Bioengineering.
