PropertyValue
Research Expertise & Professional Interests Dr. Alan Peters is Emeritus Professor of Anatomy & Neurobiology at Boston University School of Medicine. Alan Peters received his Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Bristol and after completing his two years of required Army service, in 1957 he took up a postdoctoral position in the Department of Anatomy at the University of Edinburgh with George Romanes. There he learned electron microscopy from Alan Muir, and in 1960 published images to show, for the first time, the structure of myelin sheaths in the central nervous system. In 1963 he spent a year at Harvard with Dr. Sanford L. Palay, returned to Edinburgh for two years and in 1966 was appointed the Chairman and Waterhouse Professor of Anatomy at Boston University. This allowed him to continue to collaborate with Sandy Palay and in 1970, together with Harry Webster, they published the first edition of their text on “The Fine Structure of the Nervous System. The Cells and Their Processes.” The third edition of this text was published in 1991. Alan Peters resigned from the chairmanship of the Department in 1998, and after working mainly on the structure and connection of cells in the cerebral cortex, he began to spend more time working on the effects of normal aging of the primate brain. Alan Peters’ awards have included the Cortical Discoverer Award from the Cajal Club (1991), the Henry Gray Award form the American Association of Anatomists (1998), the Sanford Palay Award (2004), and an Honorary Doctor of Science degree from the University of Edinburgh (2011). In 1995, the Journal of Comparative Neurology published a special issue honoring the life and career of Alan Peters.
