  1. The Gene, the Clinic, and the Family

    Diagnosing Dysmorphology, Reviving Medical Dominance

    By Joanna Latimer

    Series: Genetics and Society

    While some theorists argue that medicine is caught in a relentless process of ‘geneticization’ and others offer a thesis of biomedicalization, there is still little research that explores how these effects are accomplished in practice. Joanna Latimer, whose groundbreaking ethnography on acute...

  2. Cells, Forces, and the Microenvironment

    Edited by Charles M. Cuerrier, Andrew E. Pelling

    With the recent development of new experimental approaches and methodologies, it is becoming clear that cells and tissues are not regulated by biochemical signals alone. Indeed, physical cues arising in the biological microenvironment are directly coupled to the biochemical regulation of living...

  3. Science, Philosophy and Sustainability

    The End of the Cartesian dream

    Edited by Angela Guimaraes Pereira, Silvio Funtowicz

    Series: Routledge Explorations in Sustainability and Governance

    For science to remain a legitimate and trustworthy source of knowledge, society will have to engage in the collective processes of knowledge co-production, which not only includes science, but also other types of knowledge. This process of change has to include a new commitment to knowledge...

  4. Myocardial Tissue Engineering

    Edited by Tatsuya Shimizu, Katsuhisa Matsuura

    Regenerative therapy has rapidly developed as one of the most promising treatments for patients suffering from severe heart failure. Autologous bone marrow-derived cells and cardiac stem cells have been clinically applied for cell injection therapy for heart failure. As a next-generation therapy,...

  5. Noninvasive Molecular Markers in Gynecologic Cancers

    Edited by Debmalya Barh, Mehmet Gunduz

    Early detection is critical for any given cancer. With the advent of the latest omics technologies, molecular markers in combination with conventional diagnostic and screening methods are emerging as next-generation early diagnostic and prognostic strategies that can allow early-stage diagnosis,...

  6. Creating Life from Life

    Biotechnology and Science Fiction

    Edited by Rosalyn W. Berne

    This book is a collection of essays by scientists, historians, philosophers of science, and students. The essays meld biotechnology into science fiction stories and thereby open a conversation about the morality of what we may be one day, and what it may mean to be human as our biotechnological...

  10. Biomimetic Architectures by Plasma Processing

    Fabrication and Applications

    Edited by Surojit Chattopadhyay

    Plasma-processed biomimetic structures are an extremely focused and small subset of biomimetics. Although other methods can also be adopted, experimental synthesis of biomimetic structures mainly focuses on plasma processing. This book deals with the theoretical description of photonic structures...
