Molecularizing Biology and Medicine

New Practices and Alliances, 1920s to 1970s

The contributors present a coherent set of case studies of practices, technologies and strategies aimed at the isolation, investigation, manipulation, production, and uses of molecules including vitamins, hormones, blood products, antibiotics, and vaccines. These case studies examine how processes of molecularization were set in motion in the inter-war period, how they were used as a resource in the biomedical 'mobilization' of World War II, and how new alliances and strategies created as part of the war effort played a central role in the reorganisation of biomedicine in the post-war period.

High-Entropy Materials, Ultra-Strong Molecules, and Nanoelectronics

Emerging Capabilities and Research Objectives: Proceedings of a Workshop

High-entropy materials, ultra-strong molecules, and nanoelectronics have become a focus of active research because of their unique potential and applications. Global research is rapidly accelerating and unlocking major recent breakthroughs. It is important to highlight these recent developments and explore possibilities for future research and applications. The National Academies convened a workshop on February 10-11, 2016 to discuss issues in defense materials, manufacturing, and infrastructure. Key topics of discussion included emerging capabilities and research objectives for ultra-strong molecules, high-entropy materials, and nanoelectronics. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.

A comprehensive guide to the HLA (Human Leukocyte Antigen) system for immunologists and clinicians, this book contains up-to-date information on the MHC (Major Histocompatibility Complex) and its role in the immune response and in various diseases. The book explores the biological significance and role of the HLA system in organ and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation management. This volume is an invaluable guide to the full spectrum of HLA-related science while also serving as a conceptual and technical resource for those involved in HLA-related research and in clinical or surgical practice. In addition, it will be a primary point of contact for individuals working in other areas who suddenly find that their research is drawing them into the complexities of HLA genetics.

Vascular Adhesion Molecules and Inflammation

The book will provide an overview of the roles of vascular adhesion molecules in health and disease, with chapters on their cell biology, followed by chapters reviewing their importance in specific disease processes. Vascular adhesion molecules are vital for the physiological processes of leukocyte trafficking and also critically involved in the enhanced leukocyte emigration that is a key feature of all inflammatory and immune diseases. The book is designed to provide up-to-date, linked reviews of the subject suitable for postgraduate students entering the field or research workers from allied disciplines needing a modern overview.
