In PART ONE: Physician as Authors, Writers in Medicine and Educator in Public Health we cover Physicians as Authors, Professional Recognition, Medical and Allied Health Sciences Education and Science Teaching in Math and Technology (STEM). In PART TWO: Medical Scientific Discoveries & Interviews with Scientific Leaders we cover the Cardiovascular System, Genomics, The RNAs, Proteomics, Protein-folding, and Cell Regulation, Neuroscience, Microbiology & Immunology, Endocrine Hormones, Stem Cells, 3D Printing and Medical Application and Synthetic Medicinal Chemistry.
Discoveries in medical and biological sciences e-Book identifies many heroes of our time, just as it describes a trend of development in the related and allied professions. A more integrated structure is emerging. The future of medical research and the practice of medicine will be more highly dependent on integrated work of professionals who have complementary skills. This is a challenge for current and future education. Why 21st Century is in Celebration of Medical Discoveries and its HEROES? In the year 2017, we have had a remarkable activity in discoveries in physics, astrophysics, organic and inorganic chemistry, biology and evolution, and engineering that is enlighting our living on planet earth. At the same time, we are faced with incomparably difficult times in grappling with unending culture wars, natural and human disasters, disease, and large inequalities in opportunities that endangers human populations. The progress in sciences has led to advances in microbiology and virology, pharmacology, and medicine and allied health care. The advances have not been fully shared across the globe. This book is intended to first recognize the kind of educational opportunities and the choices that accomplished people have made to reach this plateau that has seen the decoding of the human gene, the birth of genetic engineering, and the dissection of vital metabolic signaling pathways essential for the understanding of life, disease, and death. This is the second volume in the Patient-centered Medicine e-Series. Its focus is articles on medical discoveries. We covered already the late 19th to the late 20th Century in an article. There were many discoveries of Nobel Prize stature by scientists and physicians in physics, chemistry, infectious disease, immunology, and the emergence of biochemical genetic and molecular biology. The second volume is focused on achievements and the scientists of distinction in the late 20th and early 21st Century. In developing this series, we considered the sources of major national and international awards, and the recognition of the professional societies. The achievements in proteomics, genomics, cell signaling and gene targeting are well covered, as well as endocrinology, neurology, and regenerative and stem cell research. Reference to Content: Medical biographies; Interviews with scientists; Awards and recognition; Science education; Health Sciences preparation; Childhood education; Flexner report; Accreditation; video reports. Life science categories; Science based medical specialties. This series of articles follows an earlier article on scientific discoveries of the late 19th and 20th centuries. However, it is noteworthy to consider that the lifetime achievements recognized in the first decade of the 21st millennium reach back to an accumulation of half a century of sustained research. These articles provide a significant amount of insight and background for understanding the motivations of the contributors over a productive lifetime, and also confirms the repeated observation of influential exposures to the work of other innovators. The material contains interviews with investigators, peer comments about their mentoring of young investigators, and also some very interesting background on childhood experiences. The biographical content is as interesting as the discoveries and honors discussed.
