Vital Signs

New on the bookshelf: Recent releases by DMS faculty authors

The Four Things that Matter Most: A Book about Living. By Ira Byock, M.D., director of palliative medicine at DHMC; Free Press; 2004. This book gives practical wisdom on transforming and healing relationships during times of illness and crisis, as well as in daily life. Drawing on true stories from counselors who work with the terminally ill, it explores the healing potential of everyday words—words of forgiveness, affection, and gratitude—that can repair rifts, soothe resentments, and restore community and humanity.

Oncogenomics: Molecular Approaches to Cancer. Edited by Charles Brenner, Ph.D., associate professor of genetics and biochemistry at DMS; and David Duggan, Ph.D.; Wiley; 2004. This book explores the impact of that genomics has had on cancer research and care. It covers topics ranging from molecular profiling to cancer pharmacology to clinical trials. Also included is information on array-based diagnostics; pharmacogenomics; and the various ethical, legal, and social issues related to cancer genomics.
