David J. Glass, MD
Dr. David J. Glass has been the Global Head of Muscle Diseases research at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research since 2005. A native of New York, Dr. Glass received his undergraduate degree from Columbia University and his MD from New York Medical College. After postdoctoral work at Columbia, he worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals for 14 years before establishing the Muscle Diseases group at Novartis.
Dr. Glass's research has led to several key scientific findings in the area of skeletal muscle atrophy and hypertrophy. He is the co-author of more than 60 peer-reviewed articles on cell signaling mechanisms in neuromuscular disease, obesity, and cancer.
Dr. Glass is an elected member of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the American Society for Clinical Investigation. He is also a Visiting Scientist at Harvard Medical School, where he teaches a course on experimental design. His book, Experimental Design for the Practicing Biologist, was well-reviewed and, in addition, he co-authored a paper that appeared in the "Leading Edge" section of the journal Cell on the philosophy of science, advocating the use of questions as opposed to hypotheses in framing experimental projects.

"In graduate schools throughout the United States, Ph.D. candidates receive almost no formal instruction in the effective design, conduct, and interpretation of experiments, even though these skills are critical to success as a scientist," says the author, David Glass."Courses are typically devoted almost entirely to factual information, whereas scientific process is equally important."
Experimental Design for Biologists --a new source of theory and practical guidance--is based on a well-received course that Glass taught while working at a biopharmaceutical company.The course was for recent hires, new PhDs who--surprisingly but frequently--had received little training in basic experimental design.
Glass is the Global Head of the Muscle Diseases program at the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Mass.He will use this new book as the core text for his experimental design "nanocourse" at Harvard Medical School next spring.

"[B]oth apprentices and more experienced scientists would benefit from a broader understanding of different experimental frameworks and their implications," writes Glass.
