This text, primarily authored by W. David Lee, is a straightforward argument that there are many instances with a period of 40 or so years from the discovery of a technology (for example, X-rays and associated equipment) to the development and utilization of such equipment in the biologists’ laboratory such that DNA analysis could be performed.
This book is a four-editor, ten-contributor text with an interesting collection of nine essays regarding the relationship of work and life from a variety of viewpoints. These viewpoints are the products of thinking sessions among the authors, who come from fields such as electrical engineering, biology, psychology, neurobiology, marine research, management, and entrepreneurship
This one-editor, 28-author, 12-chapter book provides a very good start-up guide for students, researchers, and clinicians looking for quick guidance on the technical fundamentals, molecular background, evaluation procedures, and clinical applications of well-established medical imaging modalities as well as newly emerging technologies using light or sound.
To me, the title of this book implied that it might be useful as a textbook or as a reference handbook in survey courses on clinical engineering
From Academia to Entrepreneur: Lessons from the Real World by Eugene Khor is an interesting, compact, reasonably priced, 13-chapter textbook conveying lessons learned by the author both during his time in academia and while in business
Synthetic biology aims to build or create new living organisms either from raw materials or from materials borrowed from other organisms. Although arguably only a short step away from the techniques already practiced in molecular biology
The text is recommended for the novice presenter as well as the seasoned instructor looking for ways to improve delivery and, perhaps, student (or cohort) evaluations
The author of this text is a dean of talent and professor of bioinformatics at the University of Groningen. He has extensive experience as a trainer on career and personal development courses and is the author of Developing a Talent for Science (Cambridge, 2011)
If you are an academic working in the areas of biotechnology or pharmaceutical development, this brief text, written by a lawyer and an accomplished researcher, can be a good quick introduction to some of the ramifications of entering into a consulting or advising (or both) agreement with industry
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most versatile and fastest-growing modality in diagnostic imaging, and is considered to be one of the most important medical advances of the 20th century. MRI Essentials for Innovative Technologies describes novel methods to improve MRI beyond its current limitations and combines rigorous development of mathematical concepts with descriptive presentations of the emerging MRI techniques.
