Book Description

Proceedings from the 23rd March 2007 meeting in Hertfordshire, UK

"Nitric oxide (NO), generated by the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS) plays a key role in a diverse range of physiological and pathophysiological conditions within the cardiovascular, immune, reproductive and nervous systems. Since NO is a small, diffusible, highly reactive free radical with a short half-life, and is present in low concentrations, real-time detection of NO is extremely difficult. This meeting will examine methods used to detect and visualise NO-producing cells. Furthermore, direct and indirect techniques used to measure NO will be examined, including among others, the measurement of NOS enzymatic activity, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and NO-sensitive electrodes. Finally, tools that facilitate NO research, such as NOS inhibitors will be examined". Meeting's Chair: Dr Nicholas Warrick - University of Oxford

More About the Author

Dr Shara Cohen has been active in the scientific community for over 30 years. She started as a member of the British Association of Young Scientists at the age of 15, obtained her first science degree at 21 and her Immunology PhD at 25. She has been a research scientist and lecturer in prestigious institutions around the world [including Addenbrookes' Hospital (Cambridge), The Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology (London), The Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) and The Royal Postgraduate Medical School (London)]. Shara left mainstream in 2001 research to follow her passion of science communication both within the scientific community and the general public. In 2001 Shara established Euroscicon Ltd (and is still its Managing Director) and in 2005 she founded the Mums in Science Network. She also writes, edits and produces books for both scientists and the layman
