Randall Schuh is married to Brenda Massie. They have a daughter named Ella. He is a skilled woodworker, and in recent years he has fulfilled the lifelong ambition to harvest, mill, and dry his own lumber. He has published in the field of woodworking as well as entomology.
DR. REN FEYEREISEN, director of research at the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique in France, is recognized internationally for his research on insect biochemistry, physiology, and toxicology, and especially the functions of cytochrome P450 enzymes. Feyereisen received his Ph.D. from Louis Pasteur University in Strasbourg, France in 1979. After postdoctoral fellowships at the Agricultural Research Council, University of Sussex, and in the Department of Zoology, University of Toronto, he served on the faculty of the Department of Entomology at Oregon State University (1981-1991). He moved to the University of Arizona as professor of entomology (1991-2000) and then joined INRA at the Sophia Antipolis Research Center.
Feyereisen's early studies described the roles of P450 enzymes in the biosynthesis of ecdysteroids and juvenile hormones (JH). His laboratory has also made major contributions to the biochemistry of the corpora allata and to the discovery of allatostatins as "brain-gut" neuropeptides that are powerful inhibitors of JH synthesis. More recently, in collaboration with Gary Blomquist's group, Feyereisen showed that highly conserv
