Exploring the Biomedical Revolution: A Look at the Work of Frontline Scientists and How They Are Changing Medicine (Howard Hughes Medical Institute)
Exploring the Biomedical Revolution: A Look at the Work of Frontline Scientists and How They Are Changing Medicine (Howard Hughes Medical Institute)
The twentieth century will be remembered as an era of great biomedical discoveries: the development of antibiotics and other lifesaving medications, new insights into the genetic code and the workings of the brain, refined techniques for cloning and organ transplantation. In 1953, when James Watson and Francis Crick identified the shape and composition of the DNA molecule, they transformed the science of genetics; today, with the aid of increasingly sophisticated computers and imaging devices, biomedical science continues to advance at a rapid pace. But many of these discoveries seem mysterious to members of the general public who have never heard of x-ray crystallography or are unfamiliar with the ways that genes and proteins direct the workings of the body. Now, from one of the world's most prestigious medical institutions, this clearly written and richly illustrated volume helps to unravel the mysteries, allowing general readers and students to explore biomedical research and to understand its impact on the fight against human disease.In his introduction, Philip Leder describes a revolution that "rumbles through every area of biomedicine―immunology, brain chemistry, parasitology, developmental biology―granting an intimacy with nature's workings, at a deep, molecular level, once unimaginable." Different sections of the book explore different questions: What can the study of fruit flies or worms tell us about our own genetic makeup? How does a cell "decide" to become male or female? How do our eyes perceive color and movement? How does our immune system work to fight disease, and what happens when the system malfunctions? Exploring the Biomedical Revolution tells the human stories behind the research. We see the scientists' excitement as they develop magnetic imagery to "spy" on the brain's activity. We see competition and cooperation among scientists who work to develop treatments for Lyme disease, sickle cell anemia, and AIDS. We see some creative problem-solving as one scientist inserts the gene for luciferase, a protein from fireflies, into a strain of tuberculosis―thus producing lab samples that glow in the dark. Throughout, these stories also show the patients' perspective, detailing the symptoms of malaria or cystic fibrosis or showing how the treatment of hemophilia has changed over the years. Written by leading science writers as a part of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's public education mission, this inexpensive book stimulates our imagination with numerous illustrations―a life-sized diagram of a human brain, a dramatically magnified picture of T-cells attacking a cancer cell, computer-generated depictions of the influenza virus. Several of the sections include fold-out charts, including a colorful yet disturbing montage of the different microbes that threaten our health, and a flow chart that shows how scientists work to battle genetic disease. And with the aid of a stereoscopic viewer (included), the book also provides some striking three-dimensional images―the same computer-generated images that help scientists to understand complex biological structures. Book Sections:- Blazing a Genetic Trail - From Egg to Adult - Seeing, Hearing, and Smelling the World - Blood: Bearer of Life and Death - The Race against Lethal Microbes - Arousing the Fury of the Immune System - Finding the Critical Shapes

Howard Hughes: The Mysterious Billionaire (Titans of Fortune)
Howard Hughes: The Mysterious Billionaire (Titans of Fortune)
Howard Hughes was a mysterious billionaire, heroic, tragic, brilliant, mad, pathological and extraordinarily wealthy. He was a great businessman or a terrible one; the jury is still out. But his life was fascinating and disturbing.Orphaned at 18 and inheriting millions from his father's estate, Hughes headed to Hollywood where he dallied with Hollywood's most beautiful women including Jean Harlow, Billie Dove, Lana Turner, Jane Russell, Ida Lupino, Rita Hayworth, Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, Gene Tierney, Ava Gardner, Gloria Vanderbilt—only 17—and Kate Hepburn, the latter introduced to him by his friend, Cary Grant. He produced and directed many movies, including "Scarface," "Hell's Angels" and "The Outlaw," the latter a trailblazing sex-Western starring Jane Russell. He wanted a studio and purchased RKO from uber-financier Floyd Odlum.At the same time Hughes was an industrialist and aviation pioneer. While his company Hughes Tool was generating hundreds of millions of dollars in profits annually, Hughes established aircraft companies and airlines, including TWA and Northeast Airlines. He was also a speed junkie who wanted to break world speed, endurance and altitude records. He crashed several times, one crash so severe he nearly died--and opiates administered during his lengthy recovery became a lifelong addiction.When he sold TWA for $546 million he turned his attention to Las Vegas and began acquiring hotels and casinos the way a child plays the game of Monopoly. He bought the Desert Inn, the Sands, Castaways, New Frontier, Silver Slipper, Harold's Club, North Las Vegas Airport and all the surrounding lands—and nearly a fifth of all the gambling in Nevada. Many credited Hughes for wresting control of the city from the mob.But the airplane crashes, the drug addiction and his childhood predilection for illness, real or feigned, turned him into a bizarre recluse who lived in darkness, naked, his waste kept in jars, refusing to cut his hair or nails, carried to the bathroom, and watching old movies day and night.President Richard Nixon's collapse, brought about by the Watergate fiasco, centered around Hughes. Hughes left us with many legacies from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, with an endowment today of $17.5 billion and conducting some of the most far-reaching medical research, to the ubiquitous GPS. His Glomar Explorer raised a sunken Russian nuclear submarine and his Spruce Goose, the largest airplane ever built, remains an incomplete puzzle.Award-winning author Daniel Alef brings to life the Howard Hughes story.

Aids: Evolution of an Epidemic
Aids: Evolution of an Epidemic
AIDS: Evolution of an Epidemic, features talks by and interviews with HHMI investigator Bruce D. Walker, a leading AIDS researcher and clinician at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, and Bisola O. Ojikutu, an infectious disease specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital and director of the Office of International Programs in Harvard Medical School's Division of AIDS. Both doctors split their time between Boston and the KwaZulu-Natal Province in South Africa, which has among the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rates in the world. The two-DVD set features four lectures by Walker and Ojikutu that cover the genesis of the AIDS epidemic and the original identification of HIV as the virus that causes AIDS; the life cycle of HIV and its attack on the immune system; the immense impact of drugs on the AIDS epidemic and the problem of drug resistance; and HIV's rapid evolution and the problems of vaccine development. One of the highlights of the DVD is a video showing a real-time HIV test given live in front of 180 Washington, D.C.-area high school students who attended the lectures. The DVD also features animations that illustrate key concepts, such as how HIV infects healthy immune system cells and how the antiviral drug AZT stops the infection from spreading. A series of interviews touches on different areas of HIV research, including a U.S. doctor who helped identify AIDS as a distinct disease and a researcher who helped trace the disease's origin to chimpanzees in central Africa. A panel discussion brings out the experiences of three people living with HIV. Viewers can also see extensive video footage from the South African clinics where Walker and Ojikutu work, including interviews with HIV patients there and a feature about the grandmothers who often end up caring for dozens of AIDS orphans. The lectures in AIDS: Evolution of an Epidemic are divided into dozens of chapters to make them easy to use in the classroom.
