Dr. Gail Martin inducted into the Royal Society

Gail Martin, Professor Emerita in the Department of Anatomy, was inducted as a foreign member of the Royal Society on July 10, 2015. The Royal Society, based in London, is the oldest learned society for science still in existence. Dr. Martin was inducted for being a "world-leader in understanding the function of Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs) in vertebrate embryos. She was among the first to realize that growth factors are key molecules in mediating cell-cell interactions during development. FGF signalling is crucial for establishment of the body plan and development of virtually every organ. She not only defined specific functions for FGFs but also established fundamental principles including how negative feedback mechanisms fine-tune signalling.
