Author Profiles Hershel Raffis Professor of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. He is co-author on the Vander Higher Education textbook, which is the leadingHuman Physiology text at that level. He is also the Associate Editor in Advances in Physiology Education. Dr. Raff's primary interest is the development of newmethods in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of Cushing's syndrome.Doug Eatonis Distinguished Professor and Chairman of Physiology at Emory University. In addition to authoring Vander?s, Renal Physiology, Eaton has beenan Associate Editor for American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology and is currently an Associate Editor for American Journal of Physiology-Renal Physiology. He is also on the editorial board of the Journal of Biological Chemistry. He served on National Science Foundation Neurobiology Advisory Pane from 1980-1983. He has been a regular member and Chairman of three NIH Study Sections: the Physiology Study Section (1985-1988); National Institutes of Digestive Diseases and Kidney Special Grants Study Section (1989-1993); and the General MedicineB Study Section (1994-1998). He also served on the NIH General Medical Sciences: Large grants (Glue) review panel (1999-2000). Besides the regular membership on NIH study sections, he has served on over 40 Ad Hoc Review Panels and Site Visit Teams for NIDDK, NHLBI, NIGMS, NCRR, and NCI since 1975. He also served on the National Institute of Standards and Technology Review Board from 1985-1999 and as a member Signal Transduction Review Panel for the American Heart Association.Michael Levitzkyis Professor and Interim Head of the LSU Department of Physiology and is the Director of Basic Science Curriculum. He has received numerous awards including Outstanding Professor in Medicine in 2006 and 2007, selected by Senior Class of 2007 to participate in Pre-Commencement Hooding Ceremony, and is listed in theWho's Who in the World, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in Science and Engineering, Who's Who in Frontier Science and Technology, Who's Who in the South and Southwest, Who's Who in American Education, Who's Who in Medicine and Healthcare, American Men and Women of Science, and the Dictionary of International Biography.
