About this book

Cellular domains play vital roles in a wide range of cellular functions. Defining cellular domains and understanding the molecular basis of their formation is essential to the study of cell functionality. This authoritative reference provides the most comprehensive analysis available on cellular domains, with emphasis on the definition and molecular composition of the domain as well as the functional implications of domain organization.

Dr. Ivan R. Nabi received his BSc in biochemistry at McGill University in 1983 and his PhD in cancer metastasis at the Weizmann Institute of Science in 1989. After completing his post-doctoral training in cell biology at Cornell University Medical College, he joined the Universite de Montreal, where he became Full Professor in the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology. In 2004, Dr. Nabi moved to the University of British Columbia, where he is now a Professor in the Department of Cellular and Physiological Sciences. Research in Dr. Nabi's lab is focused on the cell biology of cancer; he studies a number of cellular domains including lipid rafts and caveolae, the endoplasmic reticulum, focal adhesions, and tumor cell pseudopodia.
