About the Author:

Dr. Stillwell was a faculty member at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis for 32 years where he taught a senior level course in Biological Chemistry and a graduate level course in Biological Membranes. He also led an active research lab on the effect of omega-3 fatty acids on model membrane structure and function. He has published 140 papers and 400 abstracts on membranes. He has been an Associate Editor of Chemistry and Physics of Lipids. He retired in 2010 and now maintains Professor Emeritus status.


"It is well written, with a welcome emphasis on the history of lipid biochemistry and membrane biology... his book is readable, current, and well organized...Students of membrane structure and function, as well as experienced researchers in the area, will benefit from reading this book; it can also serve as a course resource. Summing Up: Highly recommended."--Choice Reviews Online, May 2014 "William Stillwell, who for 30 years taught a course on biological membranes, is successful in delivering a broad textbook that can be used in a beginning graduate course on biological membranes... it offers much more extensive coverage of the field of biological membranes than that found in almost any current biochemistry, cell biology, or physiology textbook. This book will be treasured by all who are interested in biological membranes."  Rating: 3, February 14, 2014 "Stillwell...presents a textbook that discusses many aspects of membrane structure and function and bridges membrane biophysics and cell biology without delving into technical matters only specialists can understand. He writes primarily for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, but suggests that even specialists in some aspect of membranes might appreciate a broad overview of the whole field."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
