Product Description Immune Biology of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation, Second Edition: Models in Discovery and Translation provides clinical and scientific researchers with a deep understanding of the current research in this field and its implications for translational practice. By providing an overview of the immune biology of HSCT, an explanation of immune rejection, and detail on antigens and their role in HSCT success, this book embraces biologists and clinicians who need a broad view of the deeply complex processes involved. It then moves on to discuss the immunobiology mechanisms that influence graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), graft-versus-leukemia (GVL) effect, and transplantation success. Using illustrative figures, highlighting key issues, describing recent successes and discussing unanswered questions, this book sums up the current state of HSCT to enhance prospects for the future. New sections focus on microbiome, metabolism, micro-RNA and mRNA regulatory mechanisms and pathways in GVHD, innate lymphoid system development, recovery and function in GVHD, genetically engineered T-cell therapies and immune system engagers for GVHD and graft-vs-tumor (GVT), and hematopoietic cell transplant for tolerance induction in solid organ grafts. Brings together perspectives from leading laboratories and clinical research groups to highlight advances from bench to bedsideGuides readers through the caveats that must be considered when drawing conclusions from studies with animal models Categorizes published advances in various aspects of immune biology of allogeneic HSCT to illustrate opportunities for clinical applications
Dying Well Is there a way to talk about death candidly, without fear ... and even with humor? How can we best prepare for it with those we love? This hour, TED speakers explore the beauty of life ... and death.

#491 Frankenstein LIVES Two hundred years ago, Mary Shelley gave us a legendary monster, shaping science fiction for good. Thanks to her, the name of Frankenstein is now famous world-wide. But who was the real monster here? The creation? Or the scientist that put him together? Tune in to a live show from Dragon Con 2018 in Atlanta, as we breakdown the science of Frankenstein, complete with grave robbing and rivers of maggots. Featuring Tina Saey, Lucas Hernandez, Travor Valle, and Nancy Miorelli. Moderated by our own Bethany Brookshire.
