Dr. J. Silvio Gutkind is Chief of the Oral and Pharyngeal Cancer Branch, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health (NIH, DHHS). He received his Ph.D. in pharmacy and biochemistry from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. His laboratory has addressed the molecular basis of cancer by studying normal and aberrant functions of molecules involved in the transduction of proliferative signals. He also leads a multi-institutional effort aimed to elucidate the molecular changes that contribute to the evolution of squamous cell carcinomas.
"...the overall worth of the book is in the excellent job it does of taking readers from the etiology and management of the disease to our current understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved." (Quarterly Review of Biology, March-May 2005)
“…a successful work…serves as a short summarising overview…” (Signal Transduction, No.1 – 2, 2004)
"...appropriate for a textbook...pathways and their regulation are well explained and there are helpful tables and illustrations. The information is current and is well referenced...Finkel, Gutkind, and their coauthors have put together examples that illustrate the growing depth of understanding the roles of signal transduction in disease..." (Cell, January 9, 2004)
“...provides a sweeping look at current information derived from assessing the role of some kinases and phosphases on human conditions associated with disease...the book contains thoughtful, well-planned chapters...with extensive citations and excellent artwork...extremely valuable.” (Pharmaceutical Research, Vol. 20, No. 12, December 2003)"[Signal Transduction and Human Disease] is the kind of monograph that can be read quickly to understand a critical area of basic biology... Very helpful in getting into the more complex literature."

"An excellent text. Well written, precise chapters that explain
the interface between molecular medicine and clinical practice at a
level appropriate for educated laypersons, physicians and
