The concept of postdoctoral training came to science and engineering about a century ago. Since the 1960s, the performance of research in the United States has increasingly relied on these recent PhDs who work on a full-time, but on a temporary basis, to gain additional research experience in preparation for a professional research career. Such experiences are increasingly seen as central to careers in research, but for many, the postdoctoral experience falls short of expectations. Some postdocs indicate that they have not received the recognition, standing or compensation that is commensurate with their experience and skills. Is this the case? If so, how can the postdoctoral experience be enhanced for the over 40,000 individuals who hold these positions at university, government, and industry laboratories? This new book offers its assessment of the postdoctoral experience and provides principles, action points, and recommendations for enhancing that experience.

This book is a completely revised new edition of the definitive reference on disorders of hemoglobin. Authored by world-renowned experts, the book focuses on basic science aspects and clinical features of hemoglobinopathies, covering diagnosis, treatment, and future applications of current research.

The book opens with a review of the scientific underpinnings. Pathophysiology of common hemoglobin disorders is discussed next in an entirely new section devoted to vascular biology, the erythrocyte membrane, nitric oxide biology, and hemolysis. Four sections deal with α and β thalassemia, sickle cell disease, and related conditions, followed by special topics. The second edition concludes with current and developing approaches to treatment, incorporating new agents for iron chelation, methods to induce fetal hemoglobin production, novel treatment approaches, stem cell transplantation, and progress in gene therapy.

The U.S. intelligence community (IC) is a complex human enterprise whose success depends on how well the people in it perform their work. Although often aided by sophisticated technologies, these people ultimately rely on their own intellect to identify, synthesize, and communicate the information on which the nation's security depends. The IC's success depends on having trained, motivated, and thoughtful people working within organizations able to understand, value, and coordinate their capabilities. Intelligence Analysis provides up-to-date scientific guidance for the intelligence community (IC) so that it might improve individual and group judgments, communication between analysts, and analytic processes. The papers in this volume provide the detailed evidentiary base for the National Research Council's report, Intelligence Analysis for Tomorrow: Advances from the Behavioral and Social Sciences. The opening chapter focuses on the structure, missions, operations, and characteristics of the IC while the following 12 papers provide in-depth reviews of key topics in three areas: analytic methods, analysts, and organizations. Informed by the IC's unique missions and constraints, each paper documents the latest advancements of the relevant science and is a stand-alone resource for the IC's leadership and workforce. The collection allows readers to focus on one area of interest (analytic methods, analysts, or organizations) or even one particular aspect of a category. As a collection, the volume provides a broad perspective of the issues involved in making difficult decisions, which is at the heart of intelligence analysis.

Therapists, exercise physiologists, and physicians will find Exercise in Rehabilitation Medicine, Second Edition, a highly useful reference in designing exercise rehabilitation programs for patients with various disabling illnesses and conditions. This book provides an understanding of the basic physiological adaptations to exercise and aids health professionals in properly matching a training program with the impairment, activity, activity level, and participation goal appropriate for the patient. Written by the most distinguished rehabilitation clinicians in the field, Exercise in Rehabilitation Medicine, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive approach to the use of exercise as a primary modality in the arsenal of rehabilitation specialists. Thoroughly updated, this new edition focuses on the basic sciences and clinical correlates affecting the use of exercise, and it includes new chapters on the use of exercise in patients with HIV/AIDS, end-stage renal disease, and cancer recovery. It also includes the following features: -Discussion of equipment and protocols used for testing the capacity of the patient, with specific reference to strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance -12 clinical chapters, each including a case study that shows how the information applies to a specific patient, indicating the practical importance of the knowledge presented -More than 200 tables, illustrations, and photos to reinforce and clarify the text -Subject and citation indexes, along with extensive reference lists for each chapter, making it easy to access the information and explore subjects in greater depth. In part I, the focus is on biological considerations, including physiological responses to exercise and adaptations regarding strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, and coordination. Only by understanding these basic facts can a health professional properly match a training program with a patient. Part IIdetails special clinical considerations, including the principles of exercise testing and exercise prescription and examining the role of exercise in preventing chronic illness. Part IIIdiscusses the rationale and clinical importance of exercise in the rehabilitation of patients with various disabling conditions, and it addresses the factors that must be weighed when prescribing exercise for these conditions. Among the diseases discussed in these 12 chapters are diseases of the heart, circulatory system, lungs, kidneys, joints, and bones and the endocrine, immune, and neuromuscular systems. Part IVincludes two chapters on special populations: the elderly and elite athletes with disabilities. Exercise in Rehabilitation Medicine, Second Edition,combines theory with practical and clinical information, establishing both the "how" and "why" of exercise rehabilitation. Its clarity will help those with little technical expertise to follow it and put it to use, and its detail and advanced material will aid those who are experienced to significantly improve their understanding.
