Brian E.S. Gunning is an Emeritus Professor in the Plant Cell Biology Group of the Australian National Universityâ€™s Research School of Biology. His distinguished research career included pioneering applications of electron microscopy and confocal scanning microscopy to studies of many aspects of plant cell structure and function.
He co-authored several textbooks and has now distilled his long experience in this field into his "Plant Cell Biology on DVD", a comprehensive collection of micrographs and movies of live cell phenomena presented in a user-friendly interface. He considers his long career in plant cell biology to have been in many ways a preparation for this major work, which in its educational contributions will have much longer-lasting value than research discoveries that are relatively ephemeral, despite representing fascinating progress at the time.
