Molecular Cell Biology Like ourselves, the individual cells that form our bodies can grow, reproduce, process information, respond to stimuli, and carry out an amazing array of chemical reactions. These abilities define life. We and other multicellular organisms contain billions or trillions of cells organized into complex structures, but many organisms consist of a... Medicine by Design: The Practice and Promise of Biomedical Engineering
A heart that once beat erratically has regained its natural rhythm. A woman paralyzed by an automobile accident is now able to resume her favorite hobby. Physicians using a robotic surgeon named da Vinci perform lifesaving operations. These are some of the feats of biomedical engineering, one of the fastest-moving areas in medicine. In this...

Apoptosis, Cell Signaling, and Human Diseases: Molecular Mechanisms, Volume 1
The aim of Apoptosis, Cell Signaling, and Human Diseases: Molecular Mechanisms
is to present recent developments in cell survival and apoptotic pathways and
their involvement in human diseases, such as cancers and neurodegenerative disorders.
This requires an integration of knowledge from several fields of research, including... Principles and Practice of Pediatric Surgery
In the preface to the text that preceded this edition, we predicted that the pace of change in the clinical practice of pediatric surgery, and in our understanding of the scientific principles that are the basis for that practice, would soon render the text obsolete. That expectation was more predictable than prescient,...
