Bioengineering Heat Transfer
Young I. Cho
0120200228
June 1992
Hardcover
·
 
Review
This is a timely and excellent summary of three areas of bioheat transfer that have been the subject of considerable interest over the past decade: the search for a fundamental tissue energy equation to describe microvascular blood perfusion, the modeling of cellular and tissue processes at high and low temperatures, and a summary of the latest temperature measurement techniques for living tissue. All three contributions provide a much needed summary of the state of the art that would be equally useful to both new and experienced researchers in these areas. The short historical introduction by Chato is also delightful.
--Sheldon Weinbaum, CUNY DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR OF ENGINEERING, THE CITY COLLEGE OF THE CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK
This book is wholeheartedly recommended to the researcher, and to the student who wishes...

Bioengineering Fundamentals
Ann Saterbak
0130938386
Mar 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Combining engineering principles with technical rigor and a problem-solving focus, this guide takes an interdisciplinary approach to the conservation laws that form the foundation of bioengineering: mass, energy, charge, and momentum. Demonstrates how conservation laws (including conservation of mass and energy, momentum, and charge) apply to biological and medical systems to lay a foundation for beginning bioengineers. Allows readers to build a mental model of how key concepts in engineering, chemistry, and physics are interrelated. Emphasizes how accounting and conservation equations are used to derive familiar laws, such as Kirchhoff’s current and voltage laws, Newton’s laws of motions, Bernoulli’s equation, and others. Extensive examples span the breadth of modern bioengineering, including...

Introduction to Bioengineering
S. a. Berger
0198565151
Mar 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Bioengineering in this book is taken to be the application of the concepts and methods of the physical sciences and mathematics in an engineering approach to problems in the life sciences. The aim of such studies is to understand the physical process and engineering aspects of a system's
performance both under normal and abnormal conditions, and to design and use diagnostic or artificial devices meant to measure, improve, safeguard, or replace life functions. The material in this book is based on the course given at the University of California at Berkeley. The text contains
contributions from instructors in mechanical, electrical, chemical, and nuclear engineering as well as from orthopedics and human biodynamics. The topics mirror the fundamental engineering science taught in the various engineering areas,...


Is Human Nature Obsolete
Harold W. Baillie
0262025698
Oct 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
As our scientific and technical abilities expand at breathtaking speeds, concern that modern genetics and bioengineering are leading us to a posthuman future is growing. Is Human Nature Obsolete? poses the overarching question of what it is to be human against the background of these current advances in biotechnology. Its perspective is philosophical and interdisciplinary rather than technical; the focus is on questions of fundamental ontological importance rather than the specifics of medical or scientific practice.

The authors -- all distinguished scholars in their fields -- take on questions about technology's goals and values that are often ignored or sidelined in the face of rapid scientific advances and the highly specialized nature of technical knowledge. The essays included represent a rich...

Stem Cell Now: From the Experiment that Shook the World to the New Politics of Life
Christopher Thomas Scott
0131737988
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
What is all the fuss over embryonic stem cell research? What is a stem cell anyway? And how does an adult stem cell differ from the more controversial embryonic stem cell? For those who are really in a muddle about this heated topic, Scott, director of Stanford's Program in Stem Cells and Society, lays out the issues in a clear and politically neutral fashion. He begins with the basics of cell division and works his way up to explaining the potential benefits of stem-cell research: how they might replace damaged organ and nerve tissue, and cure diabetes and other grave illnesses. Scott lays out the odds that adult stem cells, which don't involve the use of embryos, will ever be able to do as much as the more versatile embryonic stem cells. The author also evenhandedly addresses the political and ethical...

From Publishers Weekly
The computer HAL in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey is infamous for its dispassion, but former Audubon contributing editor Frenay tells readers that computers with emotions will arrive sooner than we may feel comfortable with. In this wide-ranging look at how biology and technology are being integrated in almost every area of human invention, Frenay writes of virtual communities and societies that are springing up online, some with economic systems that mimic those of the real world. Scientists have already created virtual life forms that have developed "sex" all by themselves and are exhibiting evolutionary traits. In the book's most original chapter, the author explains why some economists even advocate using biological metaphors to explain adaptive behaviors in our sophisticated interest rate–based...

Building Global Biobrands: Taking Biotechnology to Market
Francoise Simon
074322244X
August 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
If you're intimidated by a book that has "single nucleotide polymorphism" in its glossary, perhaps this isn't for you. But if you can get past the occasionally dense material and have at least a passing interest in the exploding sector of biotechnology, this guide really is a wonder. Professors and marketing strategists Simon and Kotler have compiled an overview of biotech that's both readable and incredibly detailed. Seamlessly switching between observations on innovating, branding and acquiring global reach, the authors display a knowledge of the subject that's almost unreal. And while advances like gene therapy and nanotechnology may sound futuristic, the future is in many cases already here-and accounting for possibly "a third of world GDP," the authors note. The writing is sprightly, the structure...


Computational Inverse Problems in Electrocardiography (Advances in Computational Bioengineering)
Peter R. Johnston (Editor)
1853126144
February 8, 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The inverse problem of electrocardiography is an important issue in the diagnosis of cardiac electrical conduction defects and other cardiac related health issues. An accurate solution to this problem provides an important addition to methods of pinpointing regions of tissue damage following acute myocardial infarction or establishing the sites of ectopic beats. However, before such technology can be placed in the hands of clinicians, considerable developmental work must be performed in the areas of applied mathematics, computation, physics and engineering. This book provides a unique survey of recent advances in these areas and highlights ongoing research and problems to be overcome before such accurate solutions can be obtained. It is primarily intended for researchers and graduate students in biomedical...

Nov 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Budz's first book, Clade, drew comparisons to William Gibson; his second proves that such claims were far from hyperbole. While Gibson twisted language to imagine technology evolved far beyond our present frame of reference, Budz instead fetishizes the wet areas where tech physically interfaces with people (Kevin Anderson coined the phrase "BioPunk" to describe Clade). A challenge to both the imagination and the intellect, the first few chapters are dense with confusing jargon and unheard-of social schemas; readers are thrown into this brave new world without a guide (nor a glossary, for that matter, making at least one reread essential). But a story quickly emerges: at some point in the future, years after an "ecocaust" has decimated the world we know and given rise to a tech-dependent society...
