Product Description In 1994, when the International Cell Death Society was founded, programmed cell death and apoptosis had just recently been recognized as major factors in medicine, important in diseases such as cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, autoimmune diseases, and developmental anomalies. The biomedical world had accepted the idea that most cells do not die by accident: under specific conditions, they commit suicide, leading either to protection of the organism or damage to it. In the last 20 years, we have come to understand a great deal about cell death. It is a major research field, and one that is considered in all medical research. In this book, many of the pioneers and leading researchers recount, in often personal terms, how their particular specialties developed, where the field is today, and what it promises for the future, both in our understanding of human and animal development and for our control of these diseases and even of viral infection. The authors address apoptosis, programmed cell death, necroptosis, autophagy, and many other versions of cell death. This comprehensive work presents the state of the art in the field, yet is written in language that makes it accessible to specialists, to students, and to non-specialists interested in understanding the field. As a resource for the history of the field as well as for its current status and the direction into which research is heading, it serve as a standard for many years.

Circular We're told if the economy is growing, and if we keep producing, that's a good thing. But at what cost? This hour, TED speakers explore circular systems that regenerate and re-use what we already have. Guests include economist Kate Raworth, environmental activist Tristram Stuart, landscape architect Kate Orff, entrepreneur David Katz, and graphic designer Jessi Arrington.
#504 The Art of Logic How can mathematics help us have better arguments? This week we spend the hour with "The Art of Logic in an Illogical World" author, mathematician Eugenia Cheng, as she makes her case that the logic of mathematics can combine with emotional resonance to allow us to have better debates and arguments. Along the way we learn a lot about rigorous logic using arguments you're probably having every day, while also learning a lot about our own underlying beliefs and assumptions.
