    Lewis Wolpert

    Lewis Wolpert CBE FRS FRSL (born October 19, 1929) is a developmental biologist, author, and broadcaster.

    Career

    He was educated at the University of Witwatersrand, Imperial College London, and at Kings College London. He is presently Emeritus Professor of Biology as applied to Medicine in the Department of Anatomy and developmental biology at University College London.

    He is well known in his field for elaborating and championing the ideas of positional information and positional value: molecular signals and internal cellular responses to them that enable cells to do the right thing in the right place during embryonic development. The essence of these concepts is that there is a dedicated set of molecules for spatial coordination of cells that is the same across many species and across different developmental stages and tissues. The discovery of Hox gene codes in flies and vertebrates has largely vindicated Wolperts positional value concept, while identification of growth factor morphogens in many species has supported the concept of positional information.

    In addition to his scientific and research publications, he has written about his own experience of clinical depression in Malignant Sadness: The Anatomy of Depression. This was turned into three television programmes entitled A Living Hell which he presented on BBC2.

    He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1980 and awarded the CBE in 1990. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1999.

    He is a Vice-President of the British Humanist Association.

    Theories

    Wolpert is regarded as a rationalist. In an April 7, 2005 article entitled Spiked, The Guardian asked a series of scientists What is the one thing everyone should learn about science? Wolpert responded, I would teach the world that science is the best way to understand the world, and that for any set of observations, there is only one correct
