New Updates From The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection

This month's releases to The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection include a new series on Evolutionary Physiology, edited by Prof John Torday from the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Prof Neil Blackstone from Northern Illinois University. The series presents a new concept in the field and suggests that the mechanisms of multicellular physiology evolved from unicellular organisms and their interactions. This is in contrast to the way physiology is currently perceived, as an association of loosely related parts without a raison d'etre. The new approach is believed to provide new insight into how and why physiology evolved as an integrated whole, as well as to allow the development of predictive models for stability and change at all levels, from the zygote to the organism. I believe this will be of great interest to researchers in many fields as it can be applied to the study of homeostasis, endothermy, pleiotropy, reproduction and many other systems.   

In addition, our Advances in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) series was expanded to include four lectures presenting various therapies and clinical case studies.

Other releases include a talk discussing the management of Inherited Cancer Predisposition added to the Cancer Genetics series, a lecture on International Biobanking in the Tissue in Research series, two independent talks on Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Immune Checkpoint Blockade in CNS Tumors, and an addition to our Libraries in a Digital Age series. Also, the talk Coping beyond adversity: living with a spinal cord injury in the Neurotrauma series was updated by the speaker. A full list of the newly released talks is provided below my signature.
