  • Tissue Engineeringby W. Mark Saltzman

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 119.99

    Tissue engineering is a field of biomedical engineering, in which synthetic materials are used together with biological components such as tissue fragments, cells, proteins to encourage tissue regeneration, regrowth, and repair. Intended for engineering students, this book introduces the principles of tissue engineering. more...

  • The Human Footby Leslie Klenerman; Bernard Wood

    Springer 2006; US$ 219.00

    A collaboration between an orthopedic surgeon and a paleoanthropologist, this book starts by tracing the evolutionary history of feet all the way from their beginnings as fins to modern human feet. It presents the foot, a neglected but important region, taking into account advances in the study of evolution, imaging, physiology and biomechanics. more...

  • Hand Bone Ageby Vicente Gilsanz; Osman Ratib

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 99.00

    For decades, the determination of bone maturity has relied on a visual evaluation of skeletal development in the hand and wrist, most commonly using the Greulich and Pyle atlas. The Gilsanz and Ratib digital atlas takes advantage of the advent of digital imaging and provides a more effective and objective approach to skeletal maturity assessment. This... more...

  • Shh and Gli Signalling in Developmentby Carolyn E. Fisher; Sarah E. M. Howie

    Springer 2008; US$ 219.00

    This book reviews and summarizes the current state of understanding of the Sonic Hedgehog (shh) pathway and the downstream Gli transcription factors during development. An introductory chapter reviews the pathway both in invertebrates and vertebrates. Subsequent chapters deal with the role of Shh during the development of specific organs and body systems... more...

  • The Biology of Extracellular Molecular Chaperonesby Novartis Foundation

    Wiley 2008; US$ 212.00

    The heat shock, or cell stress, response was first identified in the polytene chromosomes of Drosophila . This was later related to the appearance of novel proteins within stressed cells, and the key signal stimulating this appearance was identified as the presence of unfolded proteins within the cell. It is now known that this is a key mechanism... more...

  • Protein Degradationby R. John Mayer; Aaron J. Ciechanover; Martin Rechsteiner

    Wiley 2008; US$ 265.00

    The third of four volumes discusses the role of ubiquitin-mediated protein breakdown in cellular regulation and physiology. Required reading for molecular biologists, cell biologists and physiologists with an interest in the topic. more...

    Wiley 2008; US$ 265.00

    The second volume in a new series dedicated to protein degradation, this book discusses the mechanism and cellular functions of targeted protein breakdown via the ubiquitin pathway. Drawing on the combined knowledge of the world's leading protein degradation experts, this handy reference compiles information on the proteasome-mediated degradation steps... more...

  • Introduction to Computational Cardiologyby Boris Y. Kogan

    Springer 2009; US$ 119.00

    Presents descriptions of models used in both biology and medicine for discovering the mechanisms of heart function and dysfunction on several physiological scales across different species.- Provides several examples throughout the textbook and exercises at the end which facilitate understanding of basic concepts and introduces, for implementation,... more...

  • Sport and Physical Activity for Mental Healthby David Carless; Kitrina Douglas

    Wiley 2011; US$ 53.99

    With approximately 1 in 6 adults likely to experience a significant mental health problem at any one time (Office for National Statistics), research into effective interventions has never been more important.
