Paul R. Gross is a biologist and author, perhaps best known to the general public for Higher Superstition (1994),[1] written with Norman Levitt. Gross is the University Professor of Life Sciences (Emeritus) at the University of Virginia; he previously served the university as Provost and Vice-President. He has written widely on biology, evolution and creationism, and the intellectual conflicts of the so-called Science wars—for example, his book Creationism's Trojan Horse: The Wedge of Intelligent Design (2004), written with Barbara Forrest.

Gross earned his A.B. in zoology and his Ph.D. in general physiology from The University of Pennsylvania. He has taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University, Brown University, and the University of Rochester. From 1978 to 1988 he was Director and President of the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
