Biography

Elliott Goldstein studies the control of gene expression in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. In the past, his research focused mainly on understanding Jun and Fos, specific genes involved in developmental processes and in learning and memory. He and his collaborators focused on how the protein product (AP-1) formed by these oncogenes can act as a positive or negative regulator, turning a number of genes on or off.

Currently, Professor Goldstein's focus is more on the communication of this information and other educational material in molecular biology and molecular genetics. He is co-author of the textbooks "Lewin's Genes" and "Lewin's Essential Genes." He continues to work to make educational information on genetics more accessible to students.
