New on the bookshelf: Recent releases by DMS faculty authors
Molecular and Cellular Insights to Ion Channel Biology. Edited by E. Edward Bittar, M.D.; and Robert Maue, Ph.D., professor of physiology at DMS; Elsevier; 2004. This book explores ion channels through genetic, biochemical, electrophysiological, and other types of research. It looks at how the function and dysfunction of channel molecules have furthered understanding of their physiological roles. New perspectives include the immunology of the glutamate receptor and aquaporins as ion channels.
Microbial Biofilms. Edited by Mahmoud Ghannoum, Ph.D.; and George O'Toole, Ph.D., assistant professor of microbiology and immunology at DMS; ASM Press; 2004. This book covers the biology of biofilms from their development, antibiotic resistance, and architecture, to their roles in infectious disease. It encompasses bacteria and fungi and includes chapters on genetic exchange and biofilms, hospital- acquired infections, biofilms and implant infections, and the history of the development of the biofilm concept.
