This “streamlined” text provides detailed information about the salient topics covered in a traditional first year two course sequence in college Anatomy and Physiology without a lot of peripheral information. This allows students to focus on the primary concepts without getting lost in ancillary information that may or may not be relevant. This text should also serve as a good review for anyone wanting to brush up on the subject. Interested readers will include allied health students such as nursing, surgical technology, physical therapy, medical assistant, dental assistant, massage therapy, pre-medical and pre-chiropractic. It is presented in an etext format that allows a number of advantages over printed medium. These include the ability to search through the text by entering terms in the search window (eliminating the need for an index), the ability to enlarge diagrams, and the portability of an electronic file. There are also review questions at the end of each chapter with an answer key in the back of the text. Lastly there is a text webpage that includes learning plans, podcasts, powerpoints, links and videos to help students along. This material is licensed under the creative commons license. This means that instructors are free to share, copy, modify and distribute. The only requirement is to cite the author. Contains content for 2-semester course sequence in human anatomy and physiology. Many illustrations and review questions.

Anatomy and Physiology is a dynamic textbook for the yearlong Human Anatomy and Physiology course taught at most two- and four-year colleges and universities to students majoring in nursing and allied health. A&P is 29 chapters of pedagogically effective learning content, organized by body system, and written at an audience-appropriate level. The lucid text, strategically constructed art, inspiring career features, and links to external learning tools address the critical teaching and learning challenges in the course.

Color is used for pedagogical effect in A&P. Most art will consist of elegant black line, with the strongest line illustrating the most important structure(s) and shading used to show dimension and shape. Color (used only when needed) highlights and clarifies the primary anatomical or functional point of the illustration. Student focus is drawn to the most important learning point in each illustration, without distraction from excessive gradients, shadows, and loud highlights. The online book provides students with links to surgical videos, histology, interactive diagrams, and cadaver imagery at critical junctures. The text will publish in early June 2013.

يسلط البحث النظر على متلقي النص الأدبي وأثره؛ ذلك أن الفهم الحقيقي النص الأدبي كما يقول: د. جميل حمداو: ينطلق من موقعة القارئ في مكانه الحقيقي وإعادة الاعتبار له باعتباره هو المرسل إليه والمستقبل للنص ومستهلكه وهو كذلك القارئ الحقيقي له: تلذذا ونقدا وتفاعلا وحوارا. ويعني هذا أن العمل الأدبي لا تكتمل حياته وحركته الإبداعية إلا عن طريق القراءة وإعادة الإنتاج من جديد.

Have you ever considered going to a pharmacy to order some new cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells) for your ailing heart? It might sound crazy, but recent developments in stem cell science have made this concept not so futuristic. In this course, we will explore the underlying biology behind the idea of using stem cells to treat disease, specifically analyzing the mechanisms that enable a single genome to encode multiple cell states ranging from neurons to fibroblasts to T cells. Overall, we hope to provide a comprehensive overview of this exciting new field of research and its clinical relevance. This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting. Many instructors of the Advanced Undergraduate Seminars are postdoctoral scientists with a strong interest in teaching.

This course is intended for the student interested in the smallest units within biology: molecules and cells. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: relate biological concepts to daily living; characterize biological principles common to all organisms; explain the significance of biological principles to other fields of study; recognize the common relationships among scientific fields; demonstrate skills in using laboratory equipment; apply and evaluate application of the scientific method; transfer and apply your biological knowledge to solve problems in different settings; explain how matter and energy are stored and transformed by living systems; explain how information is stored, copied, transferred, and expressed in biological systems; describe the structure and function of biological macromolecules; describe the structure and function of cellular components. This free course may be completed online at any time. It has been developed through a partnership with the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges; the Saylor Foundation has modified some WSBCTC materials. (Biology 101B)

Like most introductory science textbooks, this one opens with a discussion of scientific method. A key feature is its focus on experimental support for what we know about cell and molecular biology. Understanding how science is practiced and how investigators think about experimental results is essential to understanding the relationship of cell structure and function…, not to mention our relationship to the natural world. This is a free Open Education Resource (OER), covered by a Creative Commons CCBY license (check out the Preface!). Every chapter begins with learning objectives and links to relevant recorded lectures. As used by the author, the iText engages students with embedded “just-in-time” learning tools. These include instructor’s annotations (comments) directing students to animations or text of interest, as well as links to writing assignments and quizzes. These interactive features aim to strengthen critical thinking and writing skills necessary to understand cell and molecular biology, not to mention science as a way of thinking in general. Please excuse the marketing terms, but you can choose between Bronze, Silver, or Gold versions, reflecting increasing potential for student interaction with the iText. Download your choice of the iText or the sample chapter at one of the links below.

Medicines By Design aims to explain how scientists unravel the many different ways medicines work in the body and how this information guides the hunt for drugs of the future. Pharmacology is a broad discipline encompassing every aspect of the study of drugs, including their discovery and development and the testing of their action in the body. Much of the most promising pharmacological research going on at universities across the country is sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Working at the crossroads of chemistry, genetics, cell biology, physiology, and engineering, pharmacologists are fighting disease in the laboratory and at the bedside.
