SCOTT F. GILBERT andJASON P. GREENBERG The following DwightJ. Ingle award-winning essay is the third paper by Scott Gilbert published in Perspectives [1, 2]. Graduating with honors in both biology and religion, Gilbert received his B.A. from Wesleyan University, his M.A. in the history of science, and his Ph.D. in biology from The Johns Hopkins University. His M.A. was earned under the guidance of Donna Haraway and his doctorate in mammalian development in the laboratory of Barbara Migeon. Four years of postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratories ofM. Nomura and Robert Auerbach at the University of Wisconsin followed. As assistant professor of biology at Swarthmore College, where he teaches developmental biology, immunology , and the history of biology and developmental genetics, Scott is currently on sabbatical leave to do research at the Wistar Institute. His research focuses on gene expression in mammalian development. The author of a soon-to-be-published text on developmental biology, Scott is the zoology editor of theJournal ofIrreproducible Results. Jason Greenberg was ajunior premedicai student at Swarthmore College and took the first course taught there by Gilbert. His term paper on the history of the lock-and-key concept forms the basis for at least the first part of this paper. Greenberg is currently a third-year medical student at Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine in Hershey , Pennsylvania. REFERENCES 1.Gilbert, S. F.
