Cell death and apoptosis are increasingly recognized as critical in normal development, disease, and aging, but leading theoreticians in the field now acknowledge a complexity more profound that first appreciated. The field is changing rapidly, and many older ideas are being challenged. The contributors to this volume, among the most prominent and original in the field, examine the types of cell death now known; the means by which methodologies affect interpretations; the roles of cell death genes when cells are not dying; how cells interpret signals and why the response differs according to the physiology of the cell; the roles of proteases other than caspases; and the importance of phagocytosis in cell death and its measurement.
