Author information

Professor Sperelakis currently is Professor and Chairman Emeritus of Physiology and Biophysics at the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati. He is a cell physiologist specializing in cellular electrophysiology. Dr Sperelakis received a B.S. in Chemistry, M.S. in Physiology in 1955, and a Ph.D. in Physiology in 1957, all from the University of Illinois, Urbana. He was also trained in electronics, receiving a certificate from the U.S. Navy & Marine Corps Electronics School in Treasure Island, San Francisco. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War. Dr. Sperelakis is the author/co-author of over 550 scientific articles in journals and books. He has lectured at numerous universities worldwide and at international conferences/symposia. He has also trained many postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, and has been a visiting professor at several foreign universities. Professor Sperelakis has served on a number of journal editorial boards. He is a member of numerous professional societies and has served on the Council for several of them. He has served on the science program advisory committees for various international conferences and has organized several conferences. Dr. Sperelakis was an Established Investigator of the American Heart Association (AHA), Fellow at the Marine Biological Laboratory (Woods Hole), and elected Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC). He received Awards for research excellence from Ohio AHA in 1995 and SW Ohio in 1996. His listings include Who's Who in the World, in America, in Science and Engineering, in Medicine and Healthcare, and in American Education.

Review quote

Reviews of previous edition: "...a core textbook in cell physiology...The need for such a book is well justified and it fulfills its objectives admirably. It is especially strong on the subjects of signal transduction, membrane biology, ion channels, and neuronal and muscle cell physiology... It is a solid textbook in its field..."--DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS "Cell Physiology Source Book 2e will be useful for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying cell physiology, cell biophysics, electrophysiology, and biological scientists in many fields. The book is particularly suitable for introducing cell physiology to students with training in the physical sciences and for introducing cell biophysics to students with backgrounds in biology."--BIOPHYSICAL JOURNAL "In his preface Sperelakis (emeritus, biophysics, U. of Cincinnati)describes himself as an 80-year-old retired professor living a quiet life when it came to his attention from multiple sources that his third edition text, published in 2001, had become quite rare and yet continued as the text of choice for many courses. At his request his editor surveyed instructors around the country for feedback, and their suggestions have been incorporated in this fourth edition. Chapters are more uniformly structured, the pitch is slightly lower to accommodate beginning graduate and senior-undergraduate students, and topics have been selected so as not to duplicate material readily available elsewhere. Material is arranged in sections on biophysical chemistry, metabolism, second messengers, and ultrastructure; membrane potential, transport physiology, pumps, and exchangers; membrane excitability and ion channels; synaptic transmission and sensory transduction; and muscle and other contractile systems. Academic Press is an imprint of Elsevier."--Reference and Research Book News, October 2012
