This is a charming memoir of the recently deceased professor emeritus of biology at Yale University. In it, J. P. Trinkaus ("Trink") describes his upbringing, scientific education, research activities, and philosophy of his interesting life as one of America's most distinguished and beloved developmental biologists. Few scientists can match Trink's record of publication in eight decades, starting with his first research publication in 1939 and continuing until 2003 with the posthumous publication of his life story. Through all these years, Trink used his extraordinary strength of character and dedication to science to investigate the mysteries of the development of early vertebrate embryos. Along the way, through his affiliations with Yale University and the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA, Trinkaus enriched the scientific and personal lives of countless friends, students, and colleagues. His scientific career extended from the classical period of experimental embryology to the modern day molecular approach to understanding problems of development.

About the Author:

John Philip Trinkaus was born in Rockville Centre, NY, in 1918. He attended local public schools and did his undergraduate studies at Wesleyan University. He began his graduate work at Columbia University in 1940 and continued at The Johns Hopkins University in 1941. His studies were interrupted by service in the Army Air Corps. At the end of World War II, he was discahrged as a Captain. He resumed his graduate studies at Hopkins and received his Ph.D. in 1948. Immediately after completing graduate school, be became an instructor in the Department of Zoology at Yale University. He spent his entire academic career at Yale University and became an emeritus professor in 1988. He died in February 2003.

Trinkaus published the results of his research continuously since 1939, covering a broad range of topics from melanocyte differentiation, mechanisms of gastrulation in Fundulus, cell sorting in mixed cell aggregates, and cell motility in tissue culture and in living embryos. His first book, Cells into Organs (in two editions) has become a classic. He received many grants from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, including a MERIT award. He is a former Guggenheim fellow (1959-1960), Master of Branford College (1966-1973), the chairman of a Gordon Research Conference on Morphogenetic Cell Movements (1979), and received the first E.G. Conklin Medal from the Society for Developmental Biology (1995).
