Dr. David Stuart is an associate professor in the department of biochemistry at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. He holds an MSc in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo and a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Alberta. He conducted post-doctoral research in cell cycle regulation under the supervision of Dr. Curt Wittenberg at the Scripps Institute in San Diego California Dr. Stuart\'s research is focused on mechanisms that regulate DNA replication and recombination during meiosis. His major investigations focus on the role of Cyclin Dependent Kinase and Dbf4 Dependent Kinase in activating DNA replication and linking DNA replication and recombination. He also pursues extensive investigations into the mechanisms that regulate gene expression during meiosis.

DNA replication is a fundamental part of the life cycle of all organisms. Not surprisingly many aspects of this process display profound conservation across organisms in all domains of life. The chapters in this volume outline and review the current state of knowledge on several key aspects of the DNA replication process. This is a critical process in both normal growth and development and in relation to a broad variety of pathological conditions including cancer. The reader will be provided with new insights into the initiation, regulation, and progression of DNA replication as well as a collection of thought provoking questions and summaries to direct future investigations.
